​​​SF Youth Soccer requires all coaches (head and assistant) to hold a relevant coaching license, attained by online and in person field training, which follow the US Soccer Grassroots Coach Education Program.
The process to become a licensed a coach:

  1. Identify which training clinic you need to complete. You can do so through this SF Youth Soccer Coaching document, or by scrolling down to the class outlines at the bottom of this page.

  2. Register for the U.S. Soccer Digital Coaching Center (DCC) and create a profile. 
    ​Complete the Introduction Module under the Available Courses tab - Necessary to complete any other US Soccer courses.


  3. Then, register for and complete the official US Soccer online training for the relevant game you are coaching 7v7, 9v9, 11v11 - ​MANDATORY

  4. Sign up and take the Field Training class - MANDATORY. 
    SFYS has two levels of class offering; SFYS training and Official US Soccer training.
    1. ​What is the difference between SFYS Field Training and Official US Soccer Training?
      Official US Soccer Training - US Soccer is the governing body for Soccer in the USA and completing any of the official classes will certify the coach to coach in other programs within and outside of SFYS - you can take this with SFYS or any other organization.
      SFYS Training - Training suffices the SFYS requirement that a coach has relevant coaching education and is cleared to coach with the SFYS Recreational and Upper House leagues.

    2. Complete an SFYS class and we will update your profile for coaching, meaning you are cleared to coach for the season and no action is required on your behalf.
    3. Complete Official US Soccer training and receive a certificate of completion, which you submit to info@sfyouthsoccer.com with your name and team.
