Upcoming Coaching Courses

U.S. Soccer Grassroots In-Person License Courses

These 4 separate and distinct courses offer to coaches of grassroots players a variety of education entry points based upon ages and corresponding game models specified by the U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiative that include 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11. Building blocks for learning include the Profile of the Grassroots Coach that outlines the 6 Tasks of a Coach, the Attacking and Defending Roadmaps that serves as an observational tool, the Coach’s Toolkit for managing teaching actions, and the Training Session Manual that guides the Play-Practice-Play Methodology for a holistic approach to creating reality-based, experiential learning opportunities for grassroots players. Course theoretical and practical content is delivered through a blended format which can include a combination of online, virtual, and in-person learning engagement.

  • Learn more about U.S. Soccer's Coaching Education philosophy.
  • Learn about how to develop a player-centered approach to coaching.
  • Have access to both classroom and field-based sessions.
