C License Course Registration is OPEN!

We are excited to host the USSF C License Course again this year! We are looking forward to seeing Maryland coaches continue their pathway as educators under the guidance of US Soccer Instructors.

This new blended course will have weekly virtual sessions starting on July 25 and field sessions on December 9-12. Please read all the requirements and details to make sure you are eligible for the C course. The course only has a maximum capacity of 24, so register today!

Virtual Period

The Virtual Period is the time in between the pre-course meeting and the on-field component. The Virtual Period will consist of weekly learning opportunities that will feature a mixture of independent learning using online modules, live virtual meetings led by a licensed U.S. Soccer Instructor, and small group meetings that are organized by the Coaches. Coaches will be asked to participate in discussions so each person should have access to the internet and web-camera/live video capabilities. 

The virtual meetings will take place agreed upon days and times that will be announced during the pre-course meeting (Each instructor group will establish their own meeting times). 

**It is vital that candidates have access to a 9v9 or 11v11 team during this period so that they can practically apply what they learned during the Virtual Period.

On-Field Component

Date: December 9th thru 12th 
Time: 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM 
Location: (Howard County, MD) 

Please contact Alan Lydiate: with any questions.
