U.S. Soccer Grassroots License Courses
U.S. Soccer and Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer are proud to help establish four in-person Grassroots License Courses. Each of these educational opportunities are hosted by U.S. Soccer member organizations and are tailored around the four Grassroots game models: 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11. These course options will offer coaches the chance to learn more about how to develop a player-centered approach to coaching.
Spanning four hours in length, each in-person course consists of both classroom and field-based sessions. Coaches will learn more about U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Education Philosophy, Play-Practice-Play Methodology and the Six Tasks of a Grassroots Coach, among other topics. After completion of the course, coaches will have the knowledge and tools to positively impact their players and the environment in which they interact. More information on Grassroots License Pathway.
In order to be eligible for an in-person Grassroots License Course, coaches must first take the Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module on the U.S. Soccer Learning Center.
