US Soccer launched a new Grassroots initiative

Coaches,


We are working hard on providing you with the needed support and resources that are beneficial to you and your players. Recently, US Soccer launched a new Grassroots initiative to better support volunteer coaches across the nation through online training. We are strongly encouraging that all recreational coaches take US Soccer’s Online 4v4 Grassroots Course. The course must be completed before you can receive your coach's shirt and equipment.


The course takes approximately 2.5-3 hours to complete and will provide you with a broad overview of US Soccer’s new training model of play, practice, play. You can pause the course at anytime, save your progress, and resume again when you wish. The course also provides you with tips and videos of how to coach younger age groups, ideas for training sessions, and a broad overview of the critical components of the game of soccer. If you are a coach that will be coaching 7v7 or 9v9, you will still gain knowledge from this course.

The course does have a fee of $25, but upon your completion, GSC will reimburse you the $25. Once you have completed the course, you can email a PDF or picture of your certificate, name, and address to [email protected]com in order to receive your reimbursement.


Additional Optional Courses:


On Saturday, August 4, 2018, there will be a Grassroots 9v9 In-Person course in Metairie, Louisiana for all who are interested.

Looking Ahead:


We are currently working on ways to provide additional support during the first few weeks of practice, providing coaching tips throughout the season, and recruiting participants for the creation of a recreational committee.
