U.S. Soccer courses hosted by US Club Soccer members

U.S. Soccer Federation “C,” “D” and “E” coaching licenses courses may be hosted by US Club Soccer members, signifying a major step forward in US Club Soccer’s ability to directly impact coaching development and education for members. The hosting ability was granted in 2015 after a policy ratification at U.S. Soccer’s 2015 Annual General Meeting.

“Better coaches in turn help make better players,” US Club Soccer CEO Kevin Payne said. “We encourage all our member coaches to strive to become better every day, and achieving advanced coaching licenses will no doubt help them accomplish that. Their clubs and players will directly benefit.”

Through the Players First pillar of Coaching Development, US Club Soccer is committed to providing opportunities for coaches to continue their education. In addition to hosting U.S. Soccer “C,” “D” and “E” coaching licenses courses, US Club Soccer has introduced LaLiga Formation Methodology through its long-term technical partnership with LaLiga.
