U.S. Soccer Education

Since 2018, US Club Soccer has hosted over 450 Grassroots and D courses. In 2021, US Club Soccer has been approved to host five C courses in several regions.

US Club Soccer member organizations are eligible to host U.S. Soccer Federation C, D and Grassroots coaching courses.

“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.
