In addition to child abuse clearances, coaches must also meet other basic requirements before coaching their first team.
All coaches must complete a concussion awareness training to meet the requirements of our insurance provider. This course is also available online for free from the CDC.
F License / Youth Module
Coaches for teams age U10 and below must complete the US Soccer National F License on-line course, or the PA West Youth Modules course. Both courses contain an online component. The F License is online only, and the Youth Modules course also has a half day on-field session. More information is available for both courses on the PA West website. Only one of these two licenses is required.
