Certification for Coaching

USSF

All coaches from recreation, volunteer, to competitive should all strive to educate themselves for their level of soccer coaching. USSF has the Coaches A-F level certifications.

To get your F License, which should be the minimum license all level of coaches should obtain. It is a two-hour online course that cost $25.00 to take. All competitive coaches must have it to participate in the KC Heartland league. But this course is exceptional for the recreation parent/volunteer who needs to know the basics on how to start a soccer specific lesson plan and then implement it. The fee also covers you for a year and you have access to coaching plans to help train your younger players.

To start working on your F License use the link below and register for the course. You will not regret the well spent 2 hours you took to get this License.
