We are excited to host the USSF D 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 April 25 and the field session on July 31. Please read all the requirements and details to make sure you are eligible for the D course. The course is in high demand and only has a maximum capacity of 36, so register today!
Pre-Course Meeting (webinar)
- Date: 4/25/2021
- Time: 7:30pm-8:30pm
- Link: (TBA)
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.
