Grassroots and 'D' Courses:

U.S. Soccer offers grassroots courses as follows:

The ‘D’ license course: The national ‘D’ license is an online and in-person course that has an online experience and either one or two in-person meetings.

The goals of the course are to help coaches understand how to:

  • Create game-like training sessions that encourage players’ ownership (decision-making)
  • Create a game-day environment that encourages players’ ownership (decision-making)

The learning objectives are to facilitate coach improvement in the “Six Tasks of a Coach” with an emphasis on developing the team and individual players by learning how to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of developmental stages & age characteristics
  • Observe the game, recognize formations and all player actions
  • Further develop a comprehensive understanding of Play-Practice-Play methodology
  • Organize, execute and reflect on two Play-Practice-Play training sessions based on the same goal in one week
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how to inform, involve and inspire parents
