Recommended Coaching Curriculum


The HCFC Player Development Model is based on a combination of  U.S. Youth Soccer which advocates age-appropriate instructional models and continued development for coaches. Below you will find a recommended coaching plan for Zone 1. Most of our players fall into the Zone 1 category and, therefore, will be the main focus of our instruction. ALL HCFC coaches should follow this curriculum to help ensure a safe, effective, and enjoyable soccer experience for all of our players.
