The Maryland State Youth Soccer Association promotes continual coaching education. See the attached link for a diagram of courses, which begins with the "F" course. The “F” license is a 2-hour course, conducted entirely online, intended for all parents and coaches of youth players. The focus of this grassroots course is to share U.S. Soccer’s best practices in creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate environment for 5-8 year old players.
