Grassroots Courses

U.S. Soccer's GrassRoots Courses

The GrassRoots License course is the first step in the process of obtaining coaching education for that entry level coach and for those coaches wishing to pursue the higher license – D, C and beyond.  The philosophy of the courses is the player-centered approach of Play-Practice-Play, with the instructors taking the holistic approach of coaching education.

The course consists of three parts:

  • One-hour classroom: content geared towards the coaches participating in the course with the methodology within the course title – meaning 4v4, 7v7, 9v9 or 11v11; an introduction to the Play-Practice- Play model
  • Two-hour field session: content geared towards the player-centered Play- Practice-Play model: where you the candidate will work with age appropriate players and receive feedback/reflection.
  • One-hour classroom: content geared towards the review/reflection on the field session and overall conclusion of the course
