The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Pre-Course Meeting (webinar)

  • Date: 4/25/2021
  • Time: 7:30pm-8:30pm

Virtual Period

The Virtual Period is the time in between the pre-course meeting, the on-field component(s), and after the final 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 a web-camera with live video capabilities.

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

Please see below for more specifics on typical meeting days/times, as well as the date for the in-person meeting.
