Coaching Standards & Development

The pathway to becoming a highly licensed youth soccer coach is a lengthy and strenuous process.

Like professionals in any industry, your probability for success increases with education. The U.S. Soccer Federation is committed to providing soccer coaches, from beginner to most advanced, with up to date theoretical and practical knowledge, so coaches across the United States can ensure that players develop to their full potential. We are proud to support the educational initiatives and standards put in place by U.S. Soccer. RISE SC is committed to developing our players by having the most talented and qualified coaches lead our players and oversee our program.
