The iF3 Youth Committee is currently working on developing competitive rules and standards for youth and junior athletes. It is important that youth athletes be presented with a competition structure that is age and developmentally appropriate and which is NOT just a watered down version of adult competitions. We aim to launch competitive youth events in late 2019.
In order to facilitate safety and protection of young athletes as well as increase knowledge among youth coaches the iF3 recognizes the Professional Youth Coach Certification (PYCC) course as its official youth training education course. Information about this course can be found here.
In order to be allowed in the warm-up area at any international iF3 sanctioned events involving athletes under the age of 18, it is mandatory that you take the PYCC. You can sign up for the PYCC through this link: https://coaching.thebrandxmethod.com/pycc-if3-presale-order-1
