    I spent three seasons as a D1 assistant women’s soccer coach. Before coming on staff, I had only two seasons of high school soccer coaching experience, which ended 5 years before joining the college staff. There were two major things that I found in getting in to coaching at the college level. 1.Understand that this is the highest level of college soccer out there and the top of the college pyramid, meaning everyone else is gunning for your spot. We had several volunteer assistants who where let go because they weren’t able to withstand the grind of D1 coaching. You must be relentless in everything you do…scouting, recruiting, long days with little to no sleep, organization(transportation, hotels, even uniform and equipment management), and of course learning as much as you can from your mentoring coaches and coaching education while completing as many coaching courses as possible.
    2. You must be ready to take risks and pay dues. I did not know the coaches on staff(though the other assistant coached several of my high school friends in college) and I had to email the coaches and meet in person with them once they never responded to give them my resume. I wasn’t paid for the first two years and spent much of my first season as a team manager of sorts. Wasn’t til my second season I was allowed to run warmups and discuss lineups, and third season to run group and individual training. In the end, if your passionate about the game, and willing to sacrifice time, energy, financial security, you’ll be on the right track. Moral….sometimes you just have to ask.

    Would you say its a balance of social skills and strategy? Only being a playbook wiz cant be good enough to penetrate the hearts and minds of the players. Probably a dumb question, but just wondering what everyone else thinks

    Lesson 1 …OH AND THE ONLY LESSON….have friends who are Coaches at an academy …Being a coach in football has and always will have fuck all to do with MERIT its all about nepotism and who you know ..NOT ..WHAT YOU KNOW ….Dont waste your money on courses thinking you will get somewhere..YOU WONT ..FACT !!!! Be the best coach at grassroots you can… its never a career choice !!!

    Javi, I am friends with the coach of Herkimer college. I had read about colleges looking for coaches to have masters degrees. My friend at Herkimer confirmed that. What are your thoughts on that?

    Hey Javi, I coach club level and my goal ultimately is for my kids to get into college and continue their passion of the sport, I currently use Gotsoccer to track and analyze the team but are there resources you would suggest to help educate myself and the players?

    Thank you for the video. It was good information it helped me understand what I need to do to become a coach. I'm 20 years old and this is the career path that I want so this was very helpful. All of your videos have been encouraging for me. If I never came across your videos I would probably still be deciding what I want to do. But you gave me a great example of what it would be like to fallow my Passion. Not only that it reminded me of my passion for the sport.Thank you great videos man saludos!
