How to Advance as a Coach
A combination of three of the eight Grassroots Licenses (replacing the E and F Licenses) now represent the prerequisites to progress to the U.S. Soccer D License.
New coaches must complete a minimum of three grassroots courses, in the form of two in-person courses and one online course:
- Two in person courses (one of which must the 11v11)
- One online course (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11)
Previously licensed candidates who have already completed or begun to take the E or F License courses will have the following opportunities to use those certifications toward the D License prerequisites:
- US Soccer E License + Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module
- US Soccer F License + Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module + 11v11 in-person + one other in-person license
