These nine educational opportunities, including the eight Grassroots License Courses, complete the Grassroots Pathway segment of the full U.S. Soccer Coaching License Pathway.

2018 U.S. Soccer Coaching Education Grassroots License Pathway

Coaches will begin their journey along the Coaching Development Pathway with the Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module before progressing to any of the eight Grassroots Courses, which consist of Online and In-Person Courses that focus on the four grassroots game models: 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11. The game models are defined in U.S. Soccer’s Player Development Initiatives.

The four, two-hour Online Grassroots License Courses are offered by U.S. Soccer through the DCC, while the In-Person Courses are organized and run by U.S. Soccer Member organizations [find your Member organization]. The In-Person Courses take place over four hours with two hours dedicated to classroom learning and two hours dedicated to coaching on the field. Coaches can contact their local Member organization to inquire about scheduling and pricing for In-Person courses. This easy access, low barrier approach to the foundation of the Coaching Education Pathway empowers coaches with an education relevant to their specific coaching needs.
