U.S. Soccer Announces Next A-Youth and B Course Dates

CHICAGO (March 6, 2017) — The U.S. Soccer Coaching Department has announced the dates and locations for the next A-Youth and B courses, which will start in mid-2017. The application window for these courses will be March 14 – March 26. Interested applicants should review the course details and pre-application checklist below. All applications must be submitted through U.S. Soccer’s Digital Coaching Center (DCC).

Participants at U.S. Soccer’s National Coaching Schools will have the opportunity to earn a nationally recognized license from U.S. Soccer, a member of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), and the governing body of soccer in all its forms in the United States.

These higher level courses will span three to six months at a time and take place over a series of face-to-face meetings. Candidates have the opportunity to practically apply what they have learned in their home environment with their own team between course assemblies. U.S. Soccer staff will travel to assess candidates in their home environment for the A-Youth course, while regional assessment centers will be organized for the B courses.

For other coaching inquiries, please contact the Coaching Department at coaches@ussoccer.org.
