U.S. Soccer D License Courses

Stay tuned to this webpage as well as the Digital Coaching Center to see when we're hosting a course near you. More to be added in the coming days.

The D License is an extension of the Grassroots Courses:

  • Based on all four game models (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11).
  • Purpose is to facilitate the improvement of the grassroots coach in all six tasks of a coach: coaching games, coaching training sessions, managing the performance environment, leading the team, leading the player, leadership.
  • Focus on learning how to design, execute, and reflect on training sessions.
  • Candidates will now have to coach at least one on-field training session with youth demo players during the course (current plan includes each candidate receiving an opportunity to get on-field practical experience during both weekends)
  • Course takes place over nine weeks, with field and classroom sessions on two different weekends (8am-4pm Saturday & Sunday).
