National Youth License

National Youth License

Site: Owasso, OK

January 6th-10th, 2016(Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun)


The National Youth License, a U.S. Soccer course, focuses upon the nature of children and the adjustments adults must make to coach them. The course curriculum covers the ages of 4-12 years old. The course is designed to provide club directors of coaching, youth coaches, physical education teachers, and soccer administrators with the knowledge to successfully structure soccer environments for the youth player.

Each day of the course, the focus is upon one of the traditional soccer age groups of U6, U8, U10 or U12. Each day, children of the appropriate age group are brought to the course site for the candidates to work with them in a practice training session.

The candidates are videotaped while coaching the kids and the video is reviewed with each candidate to aid in the education of the coach. The course combines both classroom (theory) and field (practical) sessions. The course concludes with written, oral and practical examinations.

The National Youth License course is six days in length. It is ideal for anyone hoping to become a better and more effective coach.

GDP has concluded for the Fall

NEOFC Goalkeepers, Parents, Coaches and Managers:

Please inform all your team Goalkeepers:

The NEOFC Goalkeeper Development Program (GDP) has concluded for the Fall (effective 11/23/2015). We will resume training in 2016.

Information regarding start dates will be communicated to coaches, goalkeepers & managers in January 2016.

Special thanks to all our Goalkeeping instructional staff, and to all of our NEOFC Goalkeepers who participated throughout the Fall Season!

We set a new club record with over 30 NEOFC youth Goalkeepers that regularly attended & advanced their skills through our clubs unique GDP Program.


NEOFC Goalkeeper Training


Goalkeepers are often the overlooked individual in the team. At Northeast Oklahoma Futball Club, we have developed a goalkeeping program, with top level instructors and sound curriculum to make all NEOFC goalkeepers complete.

Goalkeeping is a vital and privileged playing position. Northeast Oklahoma Futball Club will provide goalkeeping specific instruction in a professional routine and continuously demonstrate a valuable approach in their training. Our objective is to provide the foundation and self-confidence goalkeepers need to improve their technical skills to succeed in this game.

NEOFC families are encouraged to take full advantage of the benefits of this program at no additional cost.

NEOFC is committed to developing fundamentally sound goalkeepers whom our teams can depend upon and our opponents respect.  We expect our goalkeepers to serve as our team’s last line of defense and first line of attack. At NEOFC we strive for the following:


  • For goalkeepers to acquire and enjoy the art of goalkeeping.
  • To have fun while training.
  • To improve their technique through easy-to-understand and realistic practices.
  • To improve their understanding of the position by giving them the “tools” and knowledge they require to be successful, consistent, and a reliable performer.
  • To develop movement skills and patterns specific to goalkeeping.
  • To teach the key tactical aspects of goalkeeping. 
  • To help the goalkeeper with decision making, problem solving and other psychological aspects of the position. 
  • To ultimately improve match performance.

The training available at NEOFC will be conducted to the highest of standards, thus producing an atmosphere that goalkeepers will feel proud to attend, and be part of. The club identifies goalkeepers as valuable assets and key to a successful team.


Goalkeeper Expectations

Our Goalkeepers are expected to go above and beyond what we ask of field players in the club. Being an NEOFC Goalkeeper is a commitment that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Attendance by all NEOFC Goalkeepers, ages U-9 and older is highly encouraged. Coaches at the club are in constant communication with each other, and are of an understanding that specialized goalkeeping training is vital to a keepers’ success & team success. Each training session will be 1 hour in length.



Goalkeepers will be grouped according to ability (age is also well thought out). In accordance with United States Soccer Federation age groups: U-9 through U-19 (or 07s - 98s) .This allows for continued growth in their position of goalkeeper. In order to ensure the most adequate developmental environment for each player, if a goalkeeper is developing more rapidly than others in their group, he/she may be placed with another group and vice-versa.
