Coaching Education Presented by UYSA

Thousands of coaches have attended and successfully completed a coaching course offered through UYSA. 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.

These US Soccer coach licensing courses, delivered by the UYSA, represent the pathway to US Soccer’s National Coaching Schools. The on-line F License is accessed by registration to the US Soccer Digital Coaching Center (DCC)* and selecting the F License Modules. Candidates can complete the course in their own time and print the F License upon completion. The US Soccer F License is the entry level course for the US Soccer coaching curriculum and will be a pre-requisite and required for enrollment into an E License course.  The E and D License courses consist of pre-course assignments as well as attendance requirements and candidate evaluations during the course. Enrollment in these courses will be open to all interested coaches who have completed the established course pre-requisites and registration guidelines.  

All 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.
