US Soccer Digital Coaching Center

US Soccer offers an online, introductory youth soccer coaching license.  The “F” license is a 2-hour course, conducted entirely online, intended for all parents and coaches of youth players. The focus of this grassroots course is to share U.S. Soccer’s best practices in creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate environment for 5-8 year old players.

The cost is $25 and UDFC will reimburse active UDFC coaches for the successful completion of this course.


The NSCAA is the largest Soccer Coaching organization in the US.  Membership offers access to its online resource library of training session and activities and coaching licensing courses.
