FRISCO, Texas (November —, 2023) – US Youth Soccer (USYS) and its State Associations will host U.S. Soccer ‘B’ coach licensing courses for the first time in 2024. Twenty-three ‘B’ courses were approved by U.S. Soccer and will be held in person by multiple State Associations across four U.S. time zones throughout the year, beginning in March. The U.S. Soccer ‘B’ License is part of the Pro Pathway of U.S. Soccer’s coach licensing system, with the courses’ purpose to prepare coaches to work with youth (U13+) or senior teams in a performance environment. Some of the course objectives include the implementation and optimization of designed training sessions to facilitate player learning, preparing an age-appropriate game plan aligned to the game model, and creating a positive and safe environment that encourages respect, inclusivity and belonging. “We are thrilled for our State Associations to host these ‘B’ courses next year,” said US Youth Soccer Director of Sport Development Tom Condone. “This is a monumental step in continuing the effort from our State Technical Directors as they work to deliver courses at all levels and provide continued development opportunities for coaches. We are thankful to U.S. Soccer for allowing us to provide these courses to our membership.”
