Oklahoma Premier Club is hosting a Grassroots 7v7 In-Person course in Norman, on March 9th. This is a great opportunity for parents/coaches that are interested in coaching at the grassroots level and higher. A unique combination of three of the eight Grassroots Licenses now formally represent the prerequisite to progress to the U.S. Soccer D License (replacing the E and F Licenses). New coaches will use the U.S. Soccer Digital Coaching Center to sign up for, and complete, a minimum of three grassroots courses, in the form of two in-person courses and one online course:
- Two in-person courses (one of which must be the 11v11)
- 1 online course across any of the four levels (4v4,7v7,9v9,11v11)
Course Details: The 7v7 In-Person Course is a four-hour course that builds on the principles covered in U.S. Soccer’s Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module. Specifically, candidates will learn more about U.S. Soccer’s Grassroots Coaching Education Philosophy, Play-Practice-Play Methodology, the Six Tasks of a Coach, and the characteristics of players aged 9-10. The course will also ask each candidate to reflect on their experiences to develop action steps for personal growth.
In order to register for the 7v7 In-Person Course, candidates must have completed U.S. Soccer’s Introduction to Grassroots Coaching module.
