Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Coaching in the LCSL

In 2014 LSA Clubs established a minimum level of coaching education a coach must achieve in order to coach in the LCSL. As US Soccer updated their coaching education platforms and as LSA partnered with United Soccer Coaches to provide a second coaching education pathway for our coaches, these requirements have been updated.

Policy 305.2  Classic Team Coaching Education Minimum Standards 

305.2.1          Anyone registering as a head coach or as an assistant coach with a Classic team must have
earned the Coaching Education Minimum Standard as described herein.
305.2.2          This Coaching Education Minimum Standard shall be satisfied by successfully completing
305.2.2.1 at least 2 in-person US Soccer Grassroots Modules and 1 on-line US Soccer Grassroots Module. One of the in-person Grassroots Modules must be the 11 v. 11 Module.  
305.2.2.2 at least the United Soccer Coaches combined 7 v. 7/9 v. 9 course and 11 v. 11 Pre-National course.
305.2.2.3   Some level of coaching licensure as may be determined, in the sole  discretion of the LSA             Technical Director, to be the equivalent of the  US Soccer and United Soccer Coaches courses set forth above.
It is the responsibility of each Coach who wants to coach in the LCSL to seek out coaching education courses. It is the responsibility of each club to encourage all of their coaches, recreational and Classic alike, to seek coaching education and to ensure their LCSL coaches have achieved the minimum requirements in coaching education.
