In continuation of a series of U.S. Soccer’s One Nation community engagement initiatives, U.S. Soccer has partnered with US Club Soccer to run a free Coach for Community at OHTSL.

Each participant will receive a voucher for a future course in the Learning Center ($25 for an online course). Coaches must register for the course in order to attend and receive the free voucher.

Attendees at the Coach for Community virtual event will learn about U.S. Soccer best practices for creating a player-centered environment. The event will be led by US Club Soccer’s Coach License Technical Leads Marcie Schwartz and Beau Morki. Please come prepared to engage and learn about the U.S. Soccer coach license pathway.

Main Components:

  1. Best practices for creating a player-centered environment
    1. Player Development Initiatives
    2. Field size/Number of players/Time of game/Ratio of games to training/etc.
    3. Player Development Methodology- Play-Practice-Play (PPP)
  2. Share information about U.S. Soccer Coaching Education & Licensing Opportunities

With most youth coaches not having access to adequate training, U.S. Soccer has introduced the Coach for Community program to serve not only as an introduction to teaching the game, but to improve sporting experiences within communities, particularly underserved areas that may lack access and training for coaches, players and volunteers.


Attending participants will be supported in creating a positive, fun and player-centered environment using U.S. Soccer’s Play-Practice-Play methodology. U.S. Soccer and US Club welcomes individuals (coaches, volunteers, parents, etc.) of all levels who are interested in coaching children and helping make youth soccer a better experience. Each individual that attends the Coach for Community clinic will also receive a $25 voucher to access one of U.S. Soccer’s Grassroots Licensing Courses free of charge.

Anchored by Players First and its pillars of Club Development, Coaching Development, Player Development, Referee Development, Parent Engagement 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.
