Twin Lakes Soccer Association has multiple coaches with various degrees of coaching certification including ASSA State F, E, D certifications as well as National D license and National C Youth Diplomas. Many of our coaches started as parent coaches for our micro teams and gained certification as their kids progressed through the program. Others have played soccer themselves and wish to share their passion for soccer with the youth in our community.

Grassroots Certification:

 The USSF has changed the lower level coaching certifications.  You may now take a 4v4, 7v7, 9v9 or 11v11 Grassroots coaching course.  This can be done online or in the classroom.   Go to https://dcc.ussoccer.com/ to get started today.

ASSA D Certification: 

This 36-hour course is designed to prepare coaches working with U13 and older players by expanding their understanding of the technical and tactical demands of the game and the developmental process necessary for players of these ages. In addition, the course covers practical coaching methods and teaches the framework necessary to prepare players and teams for competition. This course is conducted over two weekends which are separated by a "practice period" of approximately two months. The fee is $110, and ASSA members who register and pay before the early deadline will receive a $10 discount.

Successful completion of the D License course certifies coaches with either a National D License or State D Certificate. Both licenses are non-expiring and are awarded following the completion of both theoretical and practical testing. Candidates wishing to attend a US Soccer National Coaching School to take the C License course must have earned and held a National D License for a minimum of 12 months.

National C Youth Diploma: 

The National Diploma is a 45-hour course designed to meet the needs of the more experienced coach, particularly those coaching at the high school level and above, or youth coaches with previous certification and a number of years working with the developing player.  It is strongly recommended that candidates complete the NSCAA Level 6 Diploma or USSF "D" license prior to the course. The overall objective of the National Diploma is to acquaint the coach with the needs of the soccer player and provide an organized and progressive methodology of coaching those needs. Basic technical and tactical knowledge is the central theme of the course in a 6 vs. 6 model. The course includes sessions on the teaching process, psychological skills training and Laws of the Game. Participants receive a curriculum that outlines the course content and includes valuable resource material. Testing includes oral, written and practical (coaching) evaluations. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
