Coaching Manual

The Coaching Committee of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) addresses coaching issues for the benefit of the USASA and the adult player.

The USASA offers two coaching education programs approved by US Soccer that are designed for the adult player. They are: the USASA Adult Coaching License and the Adult Coaching Certificate. These are US Soccer certified courses that offer training to the adult soccer membership.

Adult Coaching License

Level I (Day 1) . Consists of a classroom only presentation of coaching methods, team administration, care and prevention of injuries and the spirit of the laws. This is a great course for all those team administrators that just can’t seem to get organized as well as any coach dealing with adult players. This course assists National State Associations in tailoring the course to help educate their membership in required administrative functions.

Level II (Day 2) Combines the classroom and field training in presenting methods of coaching, tactics theory, game analysis, technical training and tactical training. This portion of the course not only helps the new coach, or someone just making those substitutions, but also is recommended for coaches making the transition from working with youth to adult players.

Level III (Day 3) This course presents a continuation of the methods of coaching, tactics theory and technical training but also contains functional training, goalkeeping, practice coaching and a written final examination. We recommend any person coaching in the USASA to complete all three levels. With the successful completion of all three levels a coach may be eligible to take the National “C” course with the recommendation of their instructor.

Adult Coaching Certificate

The Adult Coaching Certificate is specifically designed to elevate the level of coaching education within the USASA membership. It provides classroom and practical field coaching education. It is offered free of charge. It is purely educational and involves no testing. It will better prepare attendees to take the Adult License and other US Soccer coaching Licenses.
