Introduction:

U.S. Soccer’s unveiling of the new coaching “E” curriculum will take place as of January 1st 2012. The curriculum is designed to improve development of players in the United States, concentrating on creating more organized, age-appropriate training sessions, developing coaching practices and creating an environment that is fun for the players. The E course will become a license instead of a certificate based on the new curriculum.
