The NMYSA Coaching Manual is a 50 page document aimed at coaches of players aged U4 thru U10. We have broken down the manual into four easily downloadable age specific documents. Each version includes age specific lesson plans, information on the rules of the game, team management ideas and coach education programming in addition to NMYSA contact information and a coaches code of conduct. For links to those manuals, as well as the USYS and USSF manuals, click here.
