The UEFA "C" License course in Germany was one of my best experiences of my life. Prosoc and the instructors were very professional and fun to be around. I expected some issues because my group was the first but I can honestly say I didn't see any problems with the trip. If a "B" License is offered, I will be there. 10 out of 10 for me.
UEFA Coaching Course – DFP and Hessischer Fusball Verband
I continue to seek opportunities to further develop myself as a coach, coach instructor and director of coaching. Over the last several years I’ve attended courses and clinics hosted by the USSF, United Soccer Coaches and USYSA (just to name a few). All courses done provided me with helpful insight, but when the opportunity came about to take part in a course done by the DFB I jumped on it. Most involved in the game are probably well aware of the impact Germany has had on world soccer. And more importantly, on the way they game is taught and how they develop their coaches as well.
Although, the game of soccer in essence is very simple, the approach to training and coaching varies greatly around the world. For that reason alone, I would recommend attending the UEFA coaching course in Germany. The instructors were very knowledgeable; cared greatly about our development and provided a lot of interesting insight. It also helped me personally to get a better understanding of the way the DFB runs it’s programs, comparing it with how we play and teach the game in the US. While away for such a course, you find yourself sharing ideas and discussing best practices with likeminded coaches as well. Likeminded in the sense that you are on a course with others like yourself, interested in learning more and further developing your vision / philosophy on the game.
On top of all the above we were exposed to professional organizations at a variety of levels in Germany, attending practice sessions and games for both youth teams and first team in the German soccer pyramid. I loved every minute of the course and would highly recommend taking part in the course when you get such an opportunity.
