U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) Coaching Education Presented by UYSA
Thousands of coaches have attended and successfully completed an USSF coaching course since they were first developed in 1971. Regardless of the level of certification or license attempted, the prime objective of the coaching education program is to provide all coaches from the beginner to the most advanced with up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge.
Coaching education begins at the state level with introductory 2 hour "Youth Modules",and the 18 hour "E" License courses. A coach must hold an "E" license for a minimum of 6 months prior to attending the "D' license course. These courses cover elementary principles of coaching and the "E" License prepares and is required for all coaches interested in the 36 hour "D" License. Successful completion of the "D" course certifies coaches with either a State or National License. Both licenses are non-expiring and are awarded following the completion of both theoretical and practical testing. Candidates wishing to attend a U.S. Soccer National Coaching School to take the "C" License course must have earned and held a National "D" License for a minimum of 12 months.

PLEASE NOTE: In response to significant changes in curriculum to the E and D Licenses by U.S. Soccer as of January 2013, all D License courses have been postponed until this summer when the new D License curriculum will be unveiled. Due to the new curriculum and candidate requirements, effective immediately, Utah Youth Soccer has changed the minimum coaching requirement to an E License. In advance, thank you for your time and understanding. Any coach that was registered for a postponed D license will be fully refunded and given advanced notice for future D courses.
