License Course Information

 

Coaching Education Program Overview

 

License Course Pathway

U.S. Soccer, U.S. Youth Soccer and NSCAA do not officially recognize any 'equivalent' licenses - foreign or domestic. When NSCAA courses are used as a prerequisite for entry into a U.S. Soccer course (and vice versa), these only serve as an accepted indicator on where to begin on the license course ladder

Where Should I Begin?

 
Coaches may begin their educational journey by begining with the Youth Module I, Youth Module II or 'E' license (U.S. Soccer Pathway) or Level 1 - 3 (NSCAA Pathway). We would certainly encourage all coaches to do all beginning level courses, however if you must choose one, be realistic with your background and experience in the sport.
 
If you have limited playing experience at a competitive level (did not play in College or beyond) and have little to no coaching experience -begin with the Youth Module II or Youth Module I OR NSCAA Level 1, 2 or 3 diploma.
 
If you have competitive playing experience (College or beyond) and have 1-2 years soccer coaching experience, begin with the 'E' license OR NSCAA 4 through 6 diplomas. For further information on coursework - see links below;
