GEORGIA SOCCER LOOKING FOR COURSE INSTRUCTOR STAFF
January 2018 marks a milestone in coaching education. US Soccer will launch the new grassroots courses which will replace the National ‘F’ and National ‘E’ courses. The new courses will be age and formation specific and will include the following in-person modules: 4v4 course, 7v7 course, 9v9 course and 11v11 course.
Each of these courses will be 4 hours long and will be accompanied by an online 2-hour module for each formation. U.S. Soccer will roll out the course material and curriculum for these new modules in January 2018 and Georgia Soccer will start delivering these new courses shortly after. The National ‘D’ course will also undergo some changes to the course material.
In order to prepare for the changes and meet the expected demand for the new courses, Georgia Soccer is looking to expand its instructional pool and train the existing and new staff on delivering the new courses and new content.
Coaches who possess a minimum of the USSF National ‘C’ and who are interested in becoming course instructors should contact the Director of Coaching Jacob Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org and include their resume.
USSF ‘C’ license holders are eligible to teach the state level Rec G, Rec F, and Rec E courses once they are trained & added to the state instructor pool. USSF ‘B’ and ‘A’ license holders are eligible to be trained to deliver the USSF Grass Roots licenses. A Staff development workshop is planned for late January.
Georgia Soccer will continue to offer the Rec G, Rec F, and Rec E courses, in addition to the new grassroots modules since the Recreational level courses are more relevant to the recreational coach while the new grassroots modules are more relevant for the academy and select coaches.
