Here are some frequently asked questions [FAQ] and answers:
Hi, if I want to coach u10s and above are you sure I have to take the first two – active start and fundamentals?
Hi, You don't need to take the first two as pre-requsites, if you are coaching U10 Girls you will need to take the "Learn to Train" Course. Please keep in mind, if you are a "newly certified" Coach this year you will also need the following 3 courses as well: - Respect in Soccer- Laws of the Game- Making Ethical Decisions Thank You.
Hi, what if you already have levels 1 and 2 but not 3... do you have to start over ?
If you have Level 1 that is equivalent of Active Start, Level 2 is equivalent of Fundamentals - so this means, if you want to Coach "Competitive" you will need to take the appropriate course. Either Learn to Train if you are coaching U8-U11G or U9-U12B OR Soccer for Life if you are coaching U11G+ or U12B+.
Also, if you are coaching "Competitive" you will need to obtain the LOTG, RIS, and MED Courses.
