South Jersey Girls Soccer League

Coaching Education - Level 2 Class


Welcome to the Coaching Education Level 2 Class Registration with SJ Soccer Leagues!


To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or ACH Bank Account information available. The course payment covers both the classroom and field sessions. Payment is nonrefundable.

WHAT :  At the request of our membership, this course was designed to help coaches learn how to "coach" and to design and run a practice.  It will discuss player development, practice design, basic attacking and defending principles, and coaching techniques.  


COST :  The cost to attend the Level 2 course is $30, payable online when registering on the SJGSL website (regardless if you are coaching in SJSL or SJGSL).  Cash cannot be accepted, and payment is nonrefundable.  


CAP :  Because of the nature of the training, class sizes are capped at 20 coaches per field session.  First come, first served.  Additional classes may be scheduled depending on demand.


WHO :  This course is intended as a follow up to the Level 1 course, but it is open to any applicant that currently hold the SJ Soccer League Level 1 certificate or the NJ State certificate dated prior to 12/31/19 (formerly the F license), the State E license, or the USSF National F or higher license.  Applicants holding the Grassroots licenses are encouraged to take the SJ Soccer Leagues Level 1 course prior to taking the Level 2 course.


PARTICIPATION :  ALL applicants will be required to participate in the coach demo session where you will also be afforded an opportunity to observe other coaches demonstrating drills/activities.  ALL coaches will be assigned a topic for which you will design and run a 5-7 minute drill/activity with players and receive constructive feedback.  The first two hours of the field session will consist of new warmup drills and activities for coach participation, and the remaining time will be used for the coach-run demos.  Players will be brought to the field by the host club to assist the coaches in running their practice demos.


REQUIREMENTS :  All applicants must have properly uploaded a copy of their coaching certificate/license through the appropriate league website.  Note:  This course does not satisfy the NJ Little League law for limited immunity.  Applicants must have already taken a course that satisfies that requirement to coach in the SJSL and SJGSL travel leagues.    


WHEN :  There is a classroom component, which will be held on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 from 6:30-9:30pm at the Audubon senior center, 247 Oakland Ave., Audubon 08106.  The field session will be held on Sunday, June 27, 2021 from 8:00am-2:00pm at GCU, 415 Swedesboro Rd., Gibbstown, 08027.  


IMPORTANT :  There is both a classroom AND a field session component to this course.  You must complete BOTH components to receive your Level 2 Coaching Certificate.  You must attend a classroom session PRIOR to attending a field session!  There are no session waivers.  Applicants must be at least 16 years of age to attend the course.  Applicants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at the field session.






Applicants must be at least 16 years of age to attend the course. Applicants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at the field session or complete the waiver available on the league website.
