Upcoming West Virginia Soccer Association Coaching Courses:

National D License

December 7-9, 2018 and February 9-10, 2019 - Buckhannon, WV


The National D license is a 40 to 45 hour course, held over two weekends with a minimum of 4 weeks between the weekends.  It is designed for the grassroots coach who meets the prerequisites outlined below. The focus of this course is to facilitate the improvement of the candidates in the Six Tasks of a Coach across all four game models (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11) with a particular emphasis on coaching training sessions. Candidates that register for this course are expected to attend both weekends to complete the course.


Eligibility Requirements:

A combination of three of the eight Grassroots Licenses now make up the prerequisite to register for the US Soccer D License. Specifically, candidates must have completed 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)

·       One online course from any of the four levels (4v4, 7v7, 9v9, 11v11)

Coaching candidates who have already earned the E License can use that certification toward the D License prerequisite as follows:

·       U.S. Soccer E License + Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Module


Course Schedule:
