U.S. Soccer Coaching Education Waiver Policy

 

Can I be waived into the "D" License with collegiate playing experience?


Effective immediately: U.S. Soccer no longer allows any coach to bypass the "E" License based on collegiate playing experience or other. If a coach meets the minimum waiver requirements to bypass a license outlined below, they must complete a waiver application directly through U.S. Soccer.

 

 

Can I be waived into the "C" or "B" License with professional playing experience?


Applicants with three (3) years of coaching experience (any level) AND three (3) years of playing experience with a Senior National Team or three (3) years of FIFA recognized "1st Division" professional playing experience may be waived into the National "C" License.
