WYSL is proud to offer coaching education opportunities from our nationally recognized coaching education leaders: The US Soccer Coaching License pathway and United Soccer Coaches Coaching Diplomas. The pathway you choose is ultimately a personal preference, based on your level of experience, the age groups you are currently coaching, and the age groups you plan to coach in the future.
Both pathways service the U8 4v4 model, U9-U10 7v7 model, U11-U12 9v9 model, and U13+ 11v11 model, and will qualify towards your coaching requirements for the League. The WYSL prides itself on bringing the convenience of choosing which courses you prefer based on your schedule and availability.
