WYC 060 – Youth Soccer - Creed Larrucea - The only rule you need and PCA's ELM tree of success
Creed Larrucea is a physical therapist in Sacramento, California by day, and a stud youth soccer coach by night. He coaches youth teams and the local high school team. He is married and has 2 daughters ages 12 and 10.
Two of the huge ideas I took from Creed’s interview were both in the 3rd quarter – the first was the one (and only) rule you need to have for your team. The 2nd was an effort-based scoring system to let the kids know how they are performing, specifically with regards to effort. I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
