Coach License Courses

Grade K-8 Coaches,

WUSC strongly requests that all coaches and assistant coaches take the progression of USYSA/Mass. Youth Soccer Coach License Courses.  We are moving to a position where these will be mandatory for all of our coaches, with the goal of having this strong foundation of coaching philosophy and coaching skills available to all of our players. Even if you have playing experience, these courses offer valuable coach training.  The coaching pathway has been changed this season, the F and E license's being replaced by Grassroots license's for different game formats - 4v4, 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11. After this you can apply for the US Soccer D license. Below is a summary of the license courses and the details on upcoming courses in the local area.  The cost of the courses will be reimbursed by WUSC.

US Soccer Coach Education Changes:
US Soccer has implemented their revised Coaching Education Pathway. The pathway you choose is ultimately a personal preference, based on your level of experience, the age groups you are currently coaching, and the age groups you plan to coach in the future. 
Coaching License Pathway
The Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module is now the first step for coaches to progress within the coaching pathway and learn about U.S. Soccer's coaching education philosophy. The new introductory module, which will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, can be accessed on the U.S. Soccer Digital Coaching Center (DCC) and aligns with the Federation’s ongoing effort to improve the quality of coaches at all levels.

Wellesley United Soccer Club is strongly committed to the training and development of all of our volunteer coaches. If you have taken a course and passed the course, Wellesley United Soccer Club will reimburse you the full cost of the course taken. We will continue to reimburse the cost of any further courses as long as you are still actively coaching within Wellesley United Soccer. This will obviously continue if the Coaching Committee decide that you are able to continue as a head coach and or an assistant.

If you would like to take a D License course please send an email directly to Sue DeNatale- wellesleysoccer@comcast.net as this reimbursement will take place on the case by case nature.
