Member Update: U.S. Soccer Grassroots Licensing Courses U.S. Soccer and Michigan State Youth Soccer Association are pleased to announce the launching of four new in-person Grassroots License Courses as well as US Soccer’s updated ‘D’ License Course. Each of these educational opportunities is hosted by U.S. Soccer member organizations and tailored around the four new Grassroots game models: 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11. These course options will offer coaches the chance to learn more about how to develop a player-centered approach to coaching. Spanning 4-hours in length, each in-person Course consists of both classroom and field-based sessions. Coaches will learn more about U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Education Philosophy, Play-Practice-Play Methodology and the Six Tasks of a Grassroots Coach, amongst other topics. The newly revamped ‘D’ License is a culmination of all four game models and an extension of the Grassroots courses. After completion of the course, coaches will have the knowledge and tools to positively impact their player and the environment in which they interact. “Grassroots is where soccer begins. It is these early experiences that spark a child’s love for the game. As a parent or coach, these courses will help further improve those experiences,” said U.S. Soccer Director of Coaching Education, Nico Romeijn. “If you are completely new to coaching or the game of soccer, this is a tremendous opportunity to further your knowledge of how to teach children to learn and love the game. For the experienced coach or former player, this is an opportunity to provide a more structured approach based on the needs of the players. In both cases, the focus is on the player and how to ensure that player is able to learn, grow and have fun playing soccer.” Together with U.S. Soccer, the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) is committed to improving the experience and level of our players through empowering coaches with low barrier and easily accessible education. “MSYSA is excited to offer US Soccer’s grassroots coaching education courses in Michigan,” said Thomas Faro, MSYSA Executive Director. “US Soccer’s updated platform for coaches at the grassroots level is focused on continued growth and development of our coaches and players.” Grassroots Course Schedule March 11, 2018 (Grand Rapids, MI) 9v9 l 8am-12pm l $70 l Register Here 11v11 l 1pm-5pm l $70 l Register Here March 24, 2018 (Fenton, MI) 9v9 l 8am-12pm l $70 l Register Here 11v11 l 1pm-5pm l $70 l Register Here Course registration closes two weeks prior to the course start date or when the course is full (max candidates per course is 30).

In practice field sessions and the final field exam, the candidate is required to address the impact that technique has on tactics.
Three (3) General Goal for the National C License Course: To prepare coaches to better recognize problems and solutions as they occur in the run of play and to communicate this information to their players; 2.

These include, but are not limited to, the following objectives: Observe and identify the technical & tactical demands of the game Focus on the application of technique & small group tactics in games up to 9v9 to full size goals Organize, develop & implement appropriate training sessions to correct and reinforce the demands of the game Recognize soccer problems and offer appropriate technical and tactical guidance to the players Develop a better understanding of the responsibilities of coaching NOTE: The National ͚C͛ license course is now split into two meetings.
