Grassroots Coaching Licenses:

The USSF has recently re-vamped its course offerings and launched new Grassroots licenses. The objective of the new pathway is to make educational opportunities easily accessible through the offering of both online and in person licensing. The candidate-centered Grassroots License courses will be available in either two hour online, or in four hour in-person, courses for each of the following game models: 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11. The training methodology in these courses will shift to 'Play-Practice-Play' to encourage experiential learning in a reality based environment. For more information on the 'Play-Practice-Play' methodology click here, for a collection of 'Play-Practice-Play' Lesson plans please see the links below (thanks to our good friends at Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association):
