US Soccer Coaching Licenses

US Soccer Licenses Information

US Soccer is continuing to work on modifying Grassroots Licenses to accomodate various locations across the country and the safety concerns around the country.  

Therefore there are currently two options to run US Soccer Grassroots Licenses.  The first is a traditional option which would be a 2:2 (2 hours in classroom and 2 hours on the field) these can be done on the same day or on two different days.  If using this model, the classroom session should ideally be done outside such as in a pavillion or in a classroom with social distancing requirements met.

The second option is called a blended option, which would be a virtual classroom session and then in person field session.  These can be done on the same day or on two different days.

These same options are available for the D License.  The tradition is run over 2 full weekends (involving both in person classroom and field) with a 8-10 development period in between, and assignments due throughout.

The second option for the D License is a blended version.  This course is run over several weeks (ranging from 12-24 weeks) all completely virtual classroom with a final in person field day during the final week that is 6 hours.  Assignments are due throughout the duration of the course.

If your community is interested in hosting either option for a US Soccer Grassroots License (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11 or a D License) please reach out to OHTSL DOC at Marcie Schwartz at
