The Youth Level 2 Diploma is a five-hour course directed toward the person newly involved in coaching soccer. This diploma satisfies all STYSA certification requirements for coaching NASA youth soccer. Special emphasis is placed on understanding the physiological and psychological differences of coaching children. The curriculum focuses on the organization of a practice session, using small-sided games to enhance knowledge and fun, basic understanding of the Laws of the Game and information about the care and prevention of injuries. There is no testing in the Youth Level II Diploma.
