Coach Training & Resources

Coaches are the heart-beat of the Roots Soccer League. Our member clubs are heavily comprised of volunteers, most combine a full-time job and coaching on the evening and weekends. Finding the time and money for personal development is understandably hard, here's how we can help:

  • Provide FREE local Coaching Courses through our partnership with USSF
  • FREE access to MOJO Sports App for session planning and team evaluation.

MOJO Sports - Training Session Planning at Your Fingertips


We are excited to share with you an incredible resource that will help you plan fun, age-appropriate practices this season, saving you time and stress. MOJO is an amazing app that is free and simple to use. With a couple clicks of a button, MOJO provides a personalized practice plan with engaging activities that have videos explaining what to do as a coach. No matter your experience, MOJO can help.

Coach Licensing Program

One of the main areas we wanted to improve was the availability of coach education/licensing. Each year, usually in March/April, we host the United States Soccer Federation who provide age specific Grassroots courses. The cost of hosting the course/instructor and the cost for attendees is completely covered by the League. This enables 90 coaches to get professional level guidance and training locally (no trips to Worcester needed!).

In order to register for any US Soccer Coaching Education Blended Course, candidates must be at least 16 years old and have completed U.S. Soccer's Introduction to Grassroots Coaching module. Speak to your club for a link.

All course registrations are done directly through the US Soccer Learning Center. The RSL will issue reimbursement to the coach directly once they have been confirmed as attending both virtual and in person courses. We have avoided paying upfront for the course due to non-shows in previous events. The fee for each course is currently $80. Onsite registration is not available for US Soccer Courses.
