Thanks for your patience as we continue to navigate through this pandemeic. I wanted to let you know that all previously postponed playing format Grassroots courses have now been rescheduled on the US Soccer Learning Center  

New courses have also been added.

D License - Blended Learning Format - All information now posted

Candidates who were in a previous postponed course will be automatically transferred to the first course. This can be adjusted as needed.

 More courses will be added in the coming weeks so continue to check back at  for further details.

The In Person courses have now been  set up in a Blended Learning format.  All candidates should register for the zoom meeting on the date assigned for their class and then be aware of the rescheduled on the field portion on that same weekend. If you have any conflicts you must contact Adam Howarth directly at

Blended Learning - All classroom content will be delivered vritually and then a  Field component In Person.

For those coaches who wish to coach this fall - they should adhere by the Pandemic Adaptation for coaching course requirements - with courses now in a Blended Format all coaches should attend an upcoming Blended Learning Course.  2 Hours Virtual and 2 Hours Field.

I hope that this will still work for your schedules especially since that the scheduled IN Person classroom course can and will be done in the comfort of your home and on your computer.

Please note that there will still be alot of assignments/ working groups and discussion areas within the Blended Learning meetings .I encourage you to let any other people know who might be able to take the course to contact me as soon as possible.  

Again - Thanks for your patience and please email me directly if you have any questions concerning the courses.
