USSF National Schools

Designed to meet the changing needs of today's modern soccer coach, the National Coaching School offers a comlete, nine-day coaching course in a residential environment.  The course is conducted at four levels and emphasizes field instruction in the areas of technique, tactics and fitness.  The course also includes instruction in coaching methodology, team management and sport psychology.  In addition to the "A", "B" and "C" courses, the USSF has added the National Youth License to the National Coaching Schools.  The mission of the National Youth Course is to provide the most current information on the development of the youth soccer player.

Thousands of soccer coaches have completed U.S. Soccer Federation coaching schools since they were first developed in 1971.  Courses area directed by a faculty of knowledgeable coaches, many of whom have coached at the highest levels in the United States.  The objective is to provide all soccer coaches, from the beginner to the most advanced, with up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge, so coaches across the United States can help ensure that players develop to their full potential.

Coaching certification begins at the state level with introductory courses which cover the elementary principles of coaching and prepare interested coaches for the 36-hour state "D" License course.  All state licenses are non-expiring.  Please contact us at 412-856-8011 for information on these courses.
