  In order to obtain coaches cards or coaches credentials, coaches and trainers are required to complete the mandatory Foundations Of Coaching Level 2 Diploma. This course is a prerequisite starting at U9 for all coaches to meet the mandatory coaching license requirements. The LIJSL/United Soccer Coaches Foundations of Coaching Level 2 Diploma is a four-hour, in-person course designed to provide coaches with the necessary tools to develop their coaching skills.

The Foundations of Coaching Level 2 Diploma course places a strong emphasis on the two “S’s of development” – skills and soccer. Coaches will learn the difference between a drill and a player-centered activity, as well as age-appropriate activities that relate to a player’s physical, cognitive, and mental development. The course also covers how to develop activities that foster skill development and includes discussions on the principles of play, tactics, and strategy.

It is important to note that completion of Safe Sport/Heads Up/Background check is also required (click here). If you experience any issues completing these requirements, please reach out to [email protected] for assistance.
