In a further expansion of its educational opportunities for coaches, US Club Soccer has been approved to host five U.S. Soccer C courses in 2021.
US Club Soccer has hosted more than 250 grassroots courses since 2018 and will co-host these upcoming C courses with member organizations in various regions:
The C course focuses on the core concepts of coaching, and registered candidates have weekly educational opportunities via a blend of online independent learning modules and live virtual meetings led by a licensed U.S. Soccer instructor. Registration for the courses will be available on the U.S. Soccer Learning Center.
“The ability to host five U.S. Soccer C courses in 2021 is a monumental achievement for our coach education initiatives,” said Ashley Lehr, Sr. Manager of Club Development & Outreach for US Club Soccer. “This further showcases our increasing impact on coaches across the country. We are strong believers in U.S. Soccer’s mission to elevate coaching to impact player environments and look forward to providing a year full of educational opportunities.”
Other US Club Soccer-hosted grassroots modules and D courses are also available throughout the year.
US Club Soccer member organizations can apply to host grassroots modules (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11) and D courses, or co-host C courses, in either a traditional or blended format. In addition to hosting courses, US Club Soccer has nominated over 65 instructors for U.S. Soccer’s Grassroots Instructor License.
US Club Soccer has also hired three Coach Licensing Technical Leads to grow and oversee its U.S. Soccer coach education programming.
A National Association member of the U.S. Soccer Federation, US Club Soccer fosters the growth and development of soccer clubs in order to create the best possible environment for players of all ages.
Anchored by Players First and its five pillars of Club Development, Coaching Development, Player Development, Parent Engagement & Education and Player Health & Safety, US Club Soccer offers registration, league- and cup-based competition platforms, player identification and a variety of other programming, resources and services.
