US Soccer has updated their coaching education programs and created a new and innovative coaching pathway. The new 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. It also has seen a redesign of the D-License course.
