Coaching Courses


NATIONAL F:   The National F License, available exclusively online through U.S. Soccer's Digital Coaching Center, is a grassroots-type course tailored for parents and coaches (16 years of age or older) of five to eight-year-old players. The two-hour course teaches best practices for creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate environment for youth players who typically play four-versus-four (4v4). Over 70,000 individuals have obtained their F License since U.S. Soccer's state-of-the-art online educational platform was launched in 2015. The license is also available in Spanish. Those interested can enroll in the course here

**Anyone who holds the old VYSA ‘F’ Certificate will have to take the online course before they can take the E license. All candidates, no matter their coaching experience must start with the F course to further progress on the US Soccer coaching education path.

NATIONAL E: The 18-hour E course consists of a series of in-person lectures and field sessions and is typically held over one weekend. The primary objective of the National E Course is to develop coaches to effectively teach nine to 12 year olds. The course is administered by U.S. Soccer affiliate members, such as state soccer associations, of which a full list is available here. There is no development period required between completion of the F License and registering for the E.  Candidates must currently hold the National ‘F’ license.

*Pre course work is also required before the course starts.

NATIONAL D: Once an individual has held the E License for six months, they may register for the D course, which is geared for those coaching 13 to 14 year olds. The course is broken down into four parts and takes 40+ hours to complete. Phases include online assignments, face-to-face meetings with instructors, training sessions over a minimum of 10 weeks, and a final on-field exam. This course is also administered by affiliate organizations

If you are currently a Stafford Soccer coach, Stafford Soccer will reimburse you for the online "F" course and the three day "E" course with proof of payment.  "D" License candidates must get prior approval before taking the course and requesting reimbursement.
