Course Content and 2014 Registration for Performance Review Phase of "D" License Course

The New US Soccer “D” license still maintains the foundation of 36 course hours spread out over two weekends, but the course will also introduce a new concept to U.S. Soccer courses. Coaches will be required to prepare and run a set of pre-determined training sessions prior to the first weekend, now called the “Instructional Phase”. After completing the first weekend, coaches will then take what they have learned into practice with their clubs, teams and players. Coaches will be required to wait a minimum of ten weeks (or a season) before returning for the second weekend, now called the “Performance Review”.
