Coaching Courses

The Haslett Soccer Club is committed to advancing the training of coaches in our community.  As such we support coaches in the community (HYRA, Eastside, CASL) in their education.

For all individuals who coach CASL teams, the Haslett Soccer Club and the Capital Area Soccer League require an USSF/MSYSA E License.  The E License curriculum will focus on age appropriate player development activities for ages U9 - U12.  It will provide a basic understanding of coaching methodology and introduce the four pillars of soccer, stressing the technical side of the player as paramount at this stage.  See:

The Haslett Soccer Club and the Capital Area Soccer League will combine to cover the costs of all fees associated with the coaching courses.  Please contact us at haslettsoccerclub@gmail.com for more details.
