Introductory Course

HYS is committed to educating our volunteer coaches through sponsored instructional programs. US Soccer offers an Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module to help coaches learn more about the Federation's approach at the grassroots level, including key terms and concepts that you will be exposed to throughout your coaching pathway progression. This cost-free introduction will provide you with information, resources and first-hand experience as to how the grassroots courses will function. The module is also an opportunity for you to get acquainted with the electronic learning portal through which the online courses will be delivered, the US Soccer Digital Coaching Center.

We ask that all coaches complete the Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module to familiarize yourself with the grassroots approach on how to teach children to learn and love the game. Once you have completed this module, please forward the email you receive from US Soccer to the Director of Soccer Development.
