U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Development Department is making significant changes to improve the development of coaches at all levels. U.S. Soccer will release a new online F license course that will coincide with the launch of a state-of-the-art Digital Coaching Center (DCC). The license course, aimed at coaches working with the six to eight year old players, will be accessible to all coaches.
As well as the new online course, an 18-month Youth Technical Director (YTD) course will begin later this year. The YTD course is sequenced into multiple modules that focus on enhancing leadership skills, provide periodization and strategic planning tools and staff mentoring techniques. The course also includes an international academy case study trip and a technical analysis of a US Youth National Team camp. Additional details on the invitation-only course will be available later this year. U.S. Soccer’s Digital Coaching Center, is a state-of-the art online educational platform. The DCC allows coaches to create a personal profile, register for courses, communicate with technical staff, take part in online courses, create session plans with an online graphics tool, access an archive of U.S. Soccer training sessions and much more. “The Digital Coaching Center is a comprehensive resource center for coaches at all license levels. It is one of the most extensive and significant investments the coaching development department has made,” said Chesler. “It truly is an exciting time for U.S. Soccer and for coaching development.”
