Parents are encouraged to take this course with their youth football player(s). By doing so we hope that parents and players will develop an understanding of core principles which will allow you to be an effective advocate for your youth football player and for the game of football.
This course is offered for free, because we don’t believe there should be an economic barrier to learning to play football.
