United States Soccer Federation (USSF) Coaching Education:
Thousands of coaches have attended and successfully completed an US Soccer Federation coaching course since they were first developed in 1971. Regardless of the level of certification or license attempted, the prime objective of the coaching education program is to provide all coaches from the beginner to the most advanced with up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge.

US Soccer Federation (USSF) coaching education begins at the state level with the introductory online USSF National "F" License course. Following completion of the USSF National "F" License, coaches can then register and attend the USSF National "E" License course.  The National "E" License prepares interested coaches for the 36 hour USSF National "D" License course. Successful completion of the "D" course certifies coaches with either a State or National License. Both licenses are non-expiring and are awarded following the completion of both theoretical and practical testing. Candidates wishing to attend a US Soccer National Coaching School to take the "C" License course must have earned and held a National "D" License for a minimum of 12 months. Those holding a State "D" license may upgrade their State Pass to a National Pass through an upgrade course under the direction of the State Technical Director.

The State "Youth Modules" Level I and II
 
"The US Soccer Youth Coaching Courses are dedicated to the children, parents, and volunteers whose participation is essential to the development of the world's game in the United States"

The mission of the National Youth License and the State Youth Modules is to provide the most current and advanced information on growth and development of the youth soccer player. The youth soccer player is defined as any child from pre-school through adolescence. The course takes the approach that the GAME WITHIN EACH CHILD is at the center of all belief, decisions, and actions taken by the child, coach, and organization. It is the ultimate goal of youth soccer development within the United States to unlock the game within the child to reach their full soccer potential.

Coaching youth players requires bringing the game to life in a child's world. The information and demonstrations will assist you with your coaching endeavors. This philosophy will allow youngsters to play, learn, grow, and enjoy soccer in a non-threatening environment. These four elements should be central to every decision and action taken by coaches and organizations devoted to youth soccer.
