National Youth License

Alabama Soccer will host the US Soccer National Youth License over a split weekend (December 12-14 and 19-21) in Birmingham, AL.  The cost is $600 for ASA Members and $700 for non-ASA Members.  You will be able to put a down payment (half of the registration fee) to secure your spot in the course.  The other half will be due on October 1st.  The price will go up on October 2nd by $50.  Click HERE TO REGISTER -registration must be completed online with a credit card.  The registration fee does not include room and board.

The National Youth License focuses upon the nature of children and the adjustments adults must make to coach them. The course curriculum covers the ages of 4-12 year olds. Each day of the course, the focus is upon one of the traditional soccer age groups of U-6, U-8, U-10 or U-12. The course combines both classroom (theory) and field (practical) sessions and concludes with written, oral and practical examinations.

The National Youth License course is six days in length, which will be held over two weekends rather than six days in a row. It is ideal for anyone hoping to become a better and more effective coach.

The National Youth License is administered and instructed by U.S. Youth Soccer. For additional information on the National Youth License, please see below or contact ASA Technical Director Zac Crawford


Candidates must be 18 years old and hold a National "D" License or have the approval of the State Technical Director.


The host location will be Birmingham, AL.  The classroom sessions will be at the Hampton Inn (see below).  Field sessions will be a mix of indoor/outdoor at SportsBlast, which are a 5-7 minute drive from the hotel classroom.  The Hampton Inn is also the host hotel and there is a limited amount of discount priced rooms in the hotel block (see the links below to make a reservation for each weekend).  There are many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.  Candidates flying in should use Birmingham International Airport.  There is no shuttle service available and candidates are encouraged to get a rental car as ASA will not be providing transportation.

Field Sessions: SportsBlast 19220 US Highway 280 Birmingham, AL 35242
