Through the U.S. Soccer Coaching License Pathway, STX Youth Soccer is committed to providing all coaches, from beginner to advanced, with education tailored to their experiences and the needs of their players. The Coaching License Pathway consists of a series of courses designed to meet the specific needs of a coach every step of the way.
The U.S. Soccer Learning Center serves as the online educational platform where coaches can register for courses, take online classes, create session plans and more. It’s also your home for course announcements, registration, payment, assignments, communication and collaboration.
Whether you’re just getting started or have been coaching for awhile, there’s an online and in-person course that’s right for you. Future coaches can begin their learning with the Grassroots Pathway and a free “Introduction to Grassroots Coaching” online course. Coaches can advance on the Pathway from the Grassroots level all the way to Pro, with all the tools, guidance and mentorship a coach requires.
The combination of eight Grassroots Licenses help coaches ensure fun, enjoyable, and developmentally appropriate environments for their players. Prospective coaches have the option to take part in any of the courses, in any sequence, after completing the free introductory course, and can continue their training through online and in-person courses.
