“Our goal is to provide coach education that’s affordable, accessible and regularly available to our members throughout the country,” said Ashley Lehr, US Club Soccer Sr. Manager of Club Development and Outreach. “The opportunity to host C courses in various regions and continue to expand these offerings is crucial, because we’re able to provide coaches with a pathway for long-term development. And ultimately, we positively impact the experience for an exponential number of players.”

US Club Soccer member organizations can apply to co-host grassroots modules (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11) and D courses, or C courses. In addition to hosting courses, US Club Soccer regularly nominates new coach educators into U.S. Soccer’s Coach Educator Education and Development (CEED) pathway to expand the number of licensed educators.
