Our club operates under the umbrella of Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA). The VYSA staff is trained to conduct US Soccer coaching license courses, including the new US Soccer curriculum.
There are two, upcoming US Soccer/VYSA courses to be held in our club:
- E Course (an advanced course, for coaching U9-12 players, building on more involved coaching concepts, number roles for US Soccer, long-term athletic development, principles of attack and defense related to roles and areas of the field, etc - required for progressing toward D License and getting onto the US Soccer coaching pathway).
- U6-U8 and U10-U12 FUN Courses over March 24-25 (for coaches who simply want information to help them create a high-quality experience for the kids they coach).
VYSA was one of the few states approved to host the National C and B licenses in-state this year. Keep checking the website for dates. When available, please apply early to have a greater chance of admittance.
Registration is at VYSA.com. Details on additional, internal DC Stoddert coaching education will be posted once information is available.
