Eight out of the nine Cal North District Coaching Administrators, along with Cal North Coaching Directors Carlos Menjivar and Paul Saopsford, met in Modesto in November at the invitation of State Committee Chairman Hervi Rualo to formally approve the curriculum for the excellent new “F” Coaching License Course, which now stresses technical development and sports psychology. There was much lively discussion and in the end it was universally agreed that the emphasis on technique vs tactics and addressing the crucial topic of the mental/emotional/psychological state of players was indeed the right path to take. Look forward to cutting edge, relevant F License courses coming your way in the upcoming year. The video segments and the section on dealing with parents are great.
