Cultivating Team Leaders
You will want to identify players who are leaders and others you can help develop into leaders. Youth have a way of communicating with each other that adults just cannot replicate, so it is often useful to let players lead in team meetings, practices, games and social situations. It will help all your players to hear voices of leadership other than yours.
Having athletes on your team who are leaders will improve your team's results. Plus, an important part of your role as a Double-Goal Coach® is to help youth become leaders who can lead beyond sports.

Coach Certification Info
New STSC Skills
The coach and the instructor are required to sign the form and falsification of this document may constitute a Code of Conduct violation. It is not your responsibility to question the validity of the instructor's signature unless you have reason to do so. In that event, contact the agency that certified the instructor and try to confirm that the instructor's certification is valid and that the skills session did take place.
A copy of the STSC Online Content Only certification and this signed Skills Sheet should be sent to the LSC Registrar; together, they complete the STSC requirement. The STSC expiration date will always be the one on the STSC Online certification because this one will always expire first.Resources
