LYS License Requirements for Coaches

In order to provide a quality program to all players, we are requesting that all coaches be licensed. 




The Coaching License program in MA. has recently been revamped. The United States Youth Soccer Association has taken over the organization so that all licenses are now National, not State licenses. Unfortunately, if you have the prior State G or F licenses they will no longer be valid if you want to pursue your coaching education. Going forward, LYS recommends that all coaches take the new National F online course within the next 12 months. You may register and complete the course at mayouthsoccer.org. The course takes about 2 hours, and costs $25 - fee will be reimbursed by LYS. This course is essential if you wish to advance your soccer education.


Your coaching qualifications are an important factor when LYS considers the assignment of coaches to teams. LYS will reimburse coaches for all licensed courses.


LYS is also committed to hosting an E license each year to make it more convenient for our coaches to participate.


Please contact LYS Director of Coaching, Geoff Anthony , at geoffreyanthony808@yahoo.com or coachingdirector@leominsteryouthsocer.com if you have any questions.
