US Soccer Coaching License Pathway is Updated

Coaching License PathwayUS Soccer has again updated in coaching license pathway.  Long rumored and now confirmed, gone are the 'E' and 'F' licenses from the progression.  You may recognize the replacements in this pathway if you are familiar with the United Soccer Coaches (formerly NSCAA) licensing structure.

The starting point for any beginning coach is now the free and online "Introduction to Grassroots Coaching" module available throught the DCC.  Once this course is completed, coaches will be eligible for four (4) online and four (4) in-person courses that represent the Grassroots Pathway.  These are: 4v4, 7v7, 9v9 & 11v11 courses.  Keep in mind these replace the 'E' and  'F' License.  These eight (8) courses will cost $25 each plus additional fees charged by the hosting organization for in-person courses.

Ultimately there are a number of options to get to the 'D' license now.  Coaches must complete a minimum of two (2) in-person, one of these must be the 11v11 course, and two (2) online courses to be eligible for the 'D' course.

What about my 'E' License?
Your 'E' is still a vailid license and will continue to be for the forseeable future.  US Soccer is simply not offering this license to future applicants.  If you currently hold an 'E' license, you may apply for 'D' courses now.

What about my 'F' License?
Your 'F' is still a vailid license and will continue to be for the forseeable future.  However, to advance ot the 'D' license, you will be required to complete the following courses in the new pathway. Introduction to Grassroots Coaching module (req'd), the 11v11 in-person (req'd), one (1) additional in-person course (your choice) and one (1) additional in-person course (your choice).  After completing this pathway, you will have completed the prerequisite licensing for the 'D' course.
