Coaching Education

ASA partners in education with US Soccer and United Soccer Coaches.  We conduct coaching education courses at various times throughout the year to continually raise the level of coaching and soccer within our state. Our Coaching Instructors are here to provide coaches with the tools and knowledge to help their players reach their full potential.

US Soccer Federation - USSF

Because the US Soccer Federation is the National Governing Body of the United States, they are the only organization recognized by FIFA that is able to issue a true soccer coaching “license.”  Therefore, these licenses carry more weight than other certifications and acceptance into a US Soccer Course.

All US Soccer Coaching Education Courses require the creation of a profile within the Learning CenterFrom there, coaches are able to take courses along the Coaching License Pathway. ASA’s course schedule and specific course information is found in the Learning Center Upcoming Courses.

Participating in a US Soccer Course will see the Coach Educator from Alabama Soccer Association “Engage, guide, support, and challenge coaches to continue improving their knowledge, skills, and attitudes in order to plan, implement and maintain player-centered environments.”  These courses are incredible opportunities for the student coach  to experience reality-based assignments and activities that utilize experiential learning and result in the holistic growth of the person & coach.
