The 20+ hour course included field, classroom and workshop sessions that challenged participating coaches to rethink their long-term club curriculum and day-to-day training sessions. LaLiga methodology experts Carlos Casal López, LaLiga Soccer Projects Coordinator, and Saúl Vázquez Chas, Senior Specialist in Football Programs, led the course. To date, there have been 20 LaLiga Formation Methodology courses since the series’ inception in 2016. More than 1,500 coaches from 400 clubs have been educated, and hundreds have progressed beyond the Level 3 introductory stage.

LaLiga Formation Methodology is a staple of the US Club Soccer/LaLiga partnership, which stems from US Club Soccer’s Players First initiative.
