FREE Coaching Courses


We are excited to offer 7v7 and 11v11 US Soccer Grassroots License courses for NECONN coaches this
Spring. We are very grateful for the role of Volunteer Coaches within the NECONN and are excited to
provide you with opportunities to further your education in youth soccer coaching and continue to be
the best Role Models and Leaders for children in our community. 

As youth soccer coaches, we are charged with providing safe, fun and respectful environments, where
young athletes can develop their athleticism, soccer ability and life skills. The Grassroots courses will
provide an overview for the structure of training sessions using US Soccer's play-practice-play
methodology as well as providing insight and discussion into coaching training sessions, coaching games,
leading players and leading a team. 

Courses are 4 hours in total (2 hours online, 2 hours in person). NECONN will reimburse all volunteers.

Click on the Links below for additional information and registration. Coaches may register for one or
both of the courses (completion of both courses will place candidates on pathway to be eligible for US
Soccer D License) 

Again to note, this course if free to you---the $65.00 you pay for course you take will be reimbursed by NECONN.  Please reach out if you have any questions regarding this.
