Changes to the E and D Licenses

New E License

U.S. Soccer’s unveiling of the new coaching “E” curriculum will take place as of January 1st 2012. The curriculum is designed to improve development of players in the United States, concentrating on creating more organized, age-appropriate training sessions, developing coaching practices and creating an environment that is fun for the players. The E course will become a license instead of a certificate based on the new curriculum. For more information "Click here".


New D License

As part of US Soccer’s upgraded professional coaching pathway the "D" License has undergone changes in curriculum and formatting of the course. The new “D” License course will start in the summer of 2013. Coaches will be required to prepare a set of pre-determined training sessions prior to the first weekend. After completing the first weekend of the course, coaches will then have the opportunity to practice what they have learned with their club team and players. Coaches will be required to wait a minimum of one playing season before enrolling in the second weekend of the course called the Performance Review.  Any coach receiving his "D" License prior to July 2013 must take the "D" License, Part A before taking the "D" License, Part B.
