Coaching Course

The State offers free training courses for Parents (Coaches).  Most of you all will be interested in the Youth Module or the E License.  But information for all courses offered can be found at this link:

Some of the courses are available online.  Some of them require attendance, but are only available ever so often, so take a look now and register soon, before the local course fills up.

There is an additional course I want you to be aware of, the F License. The F License is not offered for free, but it is a prerequisite for the E and you will have access to a training aide.

Here is some more specific information about the F License:

It will only take up 2 hours of your time (spread out over as much time as you need) and the cost is only $25. 

That same $25 course fee also provides you with one year of access to the Digital Coaching Center (DCC) developed by the US Soccer Federation allowing you to create training session plans with an online graphics tool, access an archive of U.S. Soccer training sessions and much more.

Here is the USSF overview of the course:

The “F” license is a 2-hour course, conducted entirely online, intended for all parents and coaches of youth soccer players. The focus of this grassroots course is to share U.S. Soccer’s best practices in creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate environment for 5-8 year old players.  If you coach in an older age group, there are licenses for those as well, but the “F” is the first step and a pre-requisite to all subsequent USSF Licenses.  The journey begins with the “F”.

The “F” license course is open to all applicants at least 16 years of age.

Taking the Course:

•In order to register for the course, candidates will first be required to sign up for a user account in the U.S. Soccer Digital Coaching Center- a state of the art online educational platform

•The course takes approximately 2 hours to complete. However, candidates can stop, rewind, or restart the webinars as often as needed

•After registering for the course, candidates are granted access to the course content for 12 months. The course may be successfully completed at any time during this period
