The LeftFoot Way of Coaching
Flexible, Online & In Person Course Work
We’ve designed our coaching curriculum around what works after spending thousands of hours out on the field with our coaches for the past ten years.
Aspiring local coaches may seek LeftFoot Coaching for our Master Coach Model. The licensing path is a seven-step coach development model that also zeroes in on a more personal way of teaching soccer in one-on-one or small group setting. Throughout your journey with the Academy, you will be able to grow your services, build your reputation and reach more clients.
Our progressive coaching model begins with the Senior Practicum. For more information on the Senior Practicum click here.
As a pre-requisite of earning your Foundation Series License, the Movement Series covers the fundamentals of acceleration, deceleration and athletic development essential for coaching the LeftFoot technical series. Included in the Foundation Course. Required Completion for Licensure.
The Foundation Series Course holds the key to the next step of your journey as a coach. You can start your course work during your Senior Practicum. Everything related to the LeftFoot Phenomenal FootSkills™ model of coaching is part of the Foundation Series.
This provides an overview of what to expect from our innovative coaching curriculum, milestones to achieve, as well as recommendations to make your learning journey as smooth as possible.
The Combination Series is the integration of FootSkills with our Deadly BallStriking techniques. At this phase of your development, you’ll gain access to our Five Deadly Strikes curriculum, start working with small groups of 3-6 players and start running short term Semi-Private Coaching classes.
The Combination Series augments your training with new techniques so you can exhibit elegance of movement that is controlled yet unforced at the same time. Access your Combination Series tutorials here.
After passing the Combination course, it’s time to get creative with the ball and focus on further refining your skills. The Creative Series deep-dives into developing your tactical skills, attacking awareness, and resistance.
The Master Coach Course is the culmination of all the things you’ve learned. Learn to shadow Master Coach Christian Isquierdo and replicate some of his renowned techniques through this phase of your training.
