The U.S. Soccer Coaching Department is making significant changes to improve the development of coaches at all levels. A new online ‘F’ license course has been launched in conjunction with a state-of-the-art Digital Coaching Center (DCC), and later in the year an 18-month Youth Technical Director course will be offered. Along with the new license additions, U.S. Soccer has made modifications to the pathway and implemented changes to the former waiver program.
The re-formatted structure provides an improved pathway that offers an efficient and logical progression that increases in depth and complexity and will grow coaching competencies through a series of candidate-instructor feedback opportunities.
Washington Youth Soccer will hold an ‘E’ License course March 27-29. After May 1st, all beginner coaching education candidates will be required to start with the ‘F’ License.
