US Soccer Grassroot Licenses
(These courses replace the E License courses.)
These new courses specifically target the age-appropriate needs of players at the 4v47v79v9, and 11v11 levels.
Beginning early 2018, there will be a total of 8 new courses (4 on-line and 4 in-person/on-field) that will address the new game formats (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11).
These align with the US Soccer Player Development Initiatives (PDI) announced last year.
These courses include both field and classroom sessions.
