    Will they be covering both major philosophies -- (possession vs direct)?

    I guess its "kinda cool" that Cal-South is looking outside the lens of strictly soccer to try and help clubs run themselves better.
    But I could think of about 10 other classes that clubs need to work on before they take a "negotiation" class.
    Here’s a list of items I’d recommend:
    1. Accounting- how to budget properly for a 10 month season when all of your income comes in in February
    2. Tax law- How to maintain your non-profit status while using volunteers to run your $900 per team tournament.
    3. Marketing- the power of an EZ-Up and custom logo corner flags
    4. Social Media- how to use Instagram. Post every time your flight 3 team wins, but ignore the fact that your flight 1 kids joined them that day. Also, make sure to include any tournaments your team wins, even if it’s your Flight 1 team playing in the 2nd or 3rd flight of a tournament.
    5. Fashion Design- Be bold. Be brave. Use blue as your primary uniform color. And white as your secondary color. Make sure to create a logo that speaks to your history and commitment. (Even if your club has only been around for a short amount of time).
    6. Child Development- is yelling as loud as possible with an accent the best thing for teaching kids?
    7. Family Counseling- How to deal with parents that have different expectations.
    8. Ethics- I’ll leave this one alone.
    9. Logistics- how to coach 4 teams at the same time and still charge everyone full price when you only make 1/3 of the games.
    10. Physical Education- Does playing 4 games a weekend all summer do more harm than good? Should an 8 year old be full time goalie because she’s the slowest kid on the team? Is a 12 month season with 5 breaks of 1 week each better than taking a full month off once in a while. Should a kid be “allowed” to try another sport during the winter, spring or summer?

    Ha, Since we're on the Negotiation topic & top 10 lists:

    How about we renegotiate:
    1. Pay for coaches renogotiated to include a base salary + possible tips based on uber like ratings + possible bonuses from upper management.
    2. Pay for Refreees renogotiated to include a base fee plus possible tips & bonus based on uber like ratings.
    3. Parking fees reduced or offered at a discount via a "season pass" at some of the complexs.
    4. Tournment rewards & fees changed to include a montary reward for all champions (100% refund) & finalist (50% refund of entry fee).
    5. Hotel kickback and premium travel fees replaced with reduced travel pool program with more reasonable rates (Ie.. costco travel)
    6. Uniform cap limit of $150 per kit to include home/away & backpack.
    7. All leagues to include prize money rewards for top two (1-2) place finishers.
    8. Players selected for "Best 11 program(s)" based on peer voting & fellow coaches rather than random Scouts
    9.Parents in good standing given to right to vote on all club, leagues, assocations, governing bodies matters that invloving how "fees" are spent.
    10. On-line Fantasy youth soccer league like "Fanduel" to include prize money for those that like to keep "stats" and "predict"

    Feel free to add your own
