Although the class name is 10U coaching class, it will apply to all 6U and 8U coaches, too.  By completing it you won’t have to take another one until you’re in the 12U division (if you’re still coaching). We encourage Assistant Coaches to also attend this session because it will involve drills and techniques, but it’s not required.
