The “F” license is a 2-hour course, conducted entirely online, intended for all parents and coaches of youth players. The focus of this grassroots course is to share U.S. Soccer’s best practices in creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate environment for 5-8 year old players.
The “F” license course is open to all applicants at least 16 years of age. In order to register for the course, candidates will first be required to sign up for a user account in the U.S. Soccer Digital Coaching Center- a state of the art online educational platform.
The course takes approximately 2 hours to complete. However, candidates can stop, rewind, or restart the webinars as often as needed. After registering for the course, candidates are granted access to the course content for 12 months. The course may be successfully completed at any time during this period.
Effective June 1, 2015 this course is a prerequisite for the National E license. No waivers are permitted as per USSF guidelines.
