Coaching Education in Louisiana
Louisiana Soccer Association is committed to providing the most advanced and effective coaching education to all of our coaches regardless of the age or level of play of your players.
There are 2 parallel coaching education pathways available in the US and LSA offers both.
US Soccer Coaching Education
The new US Soccer coaching education pathway is designed to empower coaches at all levels and to give them all access to coaching education opportunities. The new structure replaces the former F-License and E-License with a Grassroots Coaching Education structure. The US Soccer D-License course has also been redesigned.

United Soccer Coaches (formerly the NSCAA)
United Soccer Coaches ("USC") offers a similar educational pathway. The USC curriculum is focused on each level of the game and USC courses are geared towards enhancing the development of the broadest cross-section possible of our coaches. For more on the coaching courses offered by the USC
In order to coach in either the Louisiana Classic Soccer League ("LCSL") or in the Louisiana Player Development League ("LPDL"), an individual must register with US Soccer's Learning Center ("LC") and must attain licensure equivalent to the former US Soccer "E" license.
