The chart below lists all possible Coaching License, but not all of them qualify you to coach. For questions concerning coaching license, please contact Jenni at the UYSA State Office 801.307.5150 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don’t have a license, you can register/pay for a course and get a seasonal waiver for free until the course starts. This might help those that need to coach in a tournament or meet the requirements to create a team before the class actually takes place.
If you can’t get into a class, you can apply for a one time only seasonal waiver. * A waiver is not a coaching license, the required coaching course must be completed to receive a license.
To receive a waiver the following 3 steps must be completed.
1. Complete the Introduction to Grassroots in U.S Soccer's Digital Coach Center
2. To pay your USSF Grassroots License waiver fee $25, click HERE (good for one season, fall or spring, not both)
If you are applying for a D Waiver please email your FILLED OUT APPLICATION to Jenni to get a payment link.
3. Click HERE for License Waiver Application (This completed application MUST be emailed to Jenni for processing or no waiver will be given
(Application (Step 3) MUST BE EMAILED TO email@example.com or no waiver will be processed)
IMPORTANT - Waiver Application must be emailed in to be processed, allow 48 hours (business days) to be processed. There is no need to send in a copy of receipt or picture of Grassroots Introduction, I can look both of those up when I receive a copy of the Waiver Application.
** Only certain license allow coaches to coach in the State/Premier Gaming Leagues. EX. A Coach with a 9v9 License online, will show in affinity but coach will be red lined on a State/Premier roster as this course does not qualify them to coach in State Competition.
