Scott Snyder has been with AYSO (@AYSO_Soccer) since 2012, holding the position of AYSO Player Development and Technical Advisor in the Coaching Department. During this time he has helped the National Coaching program reach new heights by rewriting the national curriculum for volunteer coaches, developing coaching workshops and creating communications for volunteer coaches to keep AYSO at the forefront of youth soccer education.

In this video, Snyder emphasizes the importance of providing education and training for coaches, especially those who are volunteering. Doing so not only provides a better experience for the youth athletes, but also for the coaches themselves, so they enjoy it and keep coming back to contribute to the school or youth sports organization.
