About Koach Karl
Koach Karl Dewazien is truly one of the pioneers of youth soccer in America today. Having earned his U.S. Soccer Federation "A" license in 1974, he has been the coaching director for the California Youth Soccer Association since 1978.
Koach Karl developed the "modified Laws of the Game" for youth players adopted by the USYSA which has become the standard throughout the U.S. and Canada.
He initiated the youth soccer camp movement on the West Coast and has since been a clinician for thousands of youth soccer coaches throughout the U.S. He has been a contributor to every major soccer publication in the U.S. and is a featured speaker at state and national soccer events.
Koach Karl holds licenses and certifications including USSF Referee instructor, FIFA International Youth Coaching Academies, Dutch coaching courses, and DFB German Football Association "A" license, among others.
His personal philosophy on youth soccer is, "The outcome of our children is infinitely more important than the outcome of any game they will ever play".
His philosophy shines through every piece of material he has published and is the primary reason I can recommend his work without qualification!
