‘F’ Coaching Classes now Online
The National F License is now the entry-level license in the U.S. Soccer National License track. You may learn more about the National F License at http://www.ussoccer.com/coaching-education/licenses/national-f The F License course is an online course that takes two hours to complete. The registration fee is $25.00. The course is very user-friendly; if you register and work for 30 minutes, then sign out and come back to the course in three days you pick up where you left off – the system does not make you start the course over. Registrants have access to the online content for one year after the date of registration. Many coaches refer back to the content during the season.
In order to register for the F course, you must set up a free account in the U.S. Soccer Digital Coaching Center (DCC).
