  USSF Grassroots Licenses


U.S. Soccer has announced some new and exciting changes that will go into effect in 2018. To see the U.S. Soccer official announcement click HERE. The changes include a new introduction into the pathway, referred to as the “grassroots” path, which will focus on helping novice coaches. These changes will be implemented across the country and offered in South Texas starting in February 2018 . With the creation of the Grassroots path, the current F and E license will no longer be taught or be a part of the U.S. Soccer Coaching Education curriculum. For current holders of these licenses, U.S. Soccer and South Texas Youth Soccer will continue to recognize both as national licenses that meet all prerequisites and or coaching license standards.

Description

The four new U.S. Soccer Grassroots license formats are as follows:

4 v 4

     7 v 7      9 v 9      11 v 11                                                                     

The Grassroots path has been introduced as part of the overall U.S. Soccer Coaching Education structure to permit easy access and entry points. The new structure will allow a coach to enter the pathway in one of two separate ways:

  1. the candidate may take the Online (OL) course or

  2. take the In-Person (IP) course

The online and in-person courses will be treated as two separate licenses. Ex. 4v4 License online OR 4v4 License in-person.

The new in-person licenses to be offered by South Texas YSA are four (4) hours in length. Each IP course contains two hours in the classroom and two hours on the field. The highlight of the IP course is that it offers coaches the ability to have hands-on experience learning with an instructor and players in a realistic environment and promote best practices in coaching education.

Want to Host?

For those wishing to host a course, please contact Jene' Baclawski, STYSA Technical Director of Education, at jeneb@stxsoccer.org. Please note that all in-person Grassroots courses require:

  1. age-appropriate players for the field portion
  2. a classroom
  3. a field

 

All South Texas Youth Soccer hosted U.S. Soccer courses will be set up and administered through U.S. Soccer’s Digital Coaching Center (DCC). Costs for each course will be announced in January and posted here.

 

Please check back in January 2018 for more details including the course listings.
