E LICENSE COACHING COURSE
U.S. Soccer Coaching certification begins at the state level. Massachusetts Youth Soccer conducts E-License Courses throughout the year at various locations across the state. The “E” covers the elementary principles of coaching and is designed to assist experienced coaches of U10, U12 and U14 players. The U.S. Soccer Federation does not permit any waivers into the E License Coaching Course and every candidate must first successfully complete the F License course. There is a five (5) month waiting period between the F License Course and entering the E License Course. A candidate must also be 16 years of age or older. The E License Course is a 18 HOUR course that involves both classroom and field work. Bring your soccer ball, a notebook and pen, water and snacks and come dressed to play.
• The E License course combines soccer theory and practice
• Discussions of various systems of play, laws of the game and restarts
• Games and exercises for age appropriate practices
• Tactical ideas, including the tactics of 2 versus 1 situations
• Each participant will have the opportunity to lead a short coaching session, with constructive feedback from the instructor
REQUIRED PRE-COURSE INFORMATION
We have pre-course work for coaches taking the E License course. For the E course, coaches need to go to the Online Course page on our website,
(the Online G course and all pre-course work is located on this page) and register for the appropriate E License course "Pre-course Work". There is no cost to do this. We have a new online course platform…coaches will need to register to complete the Pre-course work, by choosing "New Registration" on the left hand side. Once a coach completes the new registration page, a dashboard appears, and a coach can choose "Pre-E Course".
The E License course costs $ 100.00 per candidate.
