Education...to keep coaches coaching and players playing
Through our mission, programming, coach training and rules, Iowa Soccer strives to help cultivate the best possible playing environment for players and coaches. We recognize that without good coaches, many players quit the sport. Part of what we do is provide training and resources to coaches so they can help create a fun and inclusive experience for players.
Level 1, 2, 3...say what?!
In the fall of 2010, Iowa Soccer implemented a new classification system of teams and players. The designations select/premier, classic and recreational are no longer being used and have been replaced by Level 1, 2 and 3 respectively.
One of the most important philosophies we've implemented is mandating small-sided soccer in the younger age groups. We believe playing 3v3 up to 8v8, on smaller fields with smaller goals, is fun and promotes player development.
