Coaching License Mandate

Beginning September 1, 2015: All Coaches and Assistant Coaches listed on travel teams MUST have at least the F license.  We no longer take any other licenses except for the USSF F license and higher!  

The New Online F license has two parts - the online course and the field module.  You have one year from the time you take the online course to do the field module (or vice versa).  You can do the courses in whatever order you prefer.  
The online course is always available and can be completed at your convenience.  The field module will be scheduled and announcements will be sent out when they become available.  You can also check our website and/or ENYYSA website for field modules, dates and locations.
The online course can be found here US SOCCER DIGITAL COACHING CENTER  
If you have taken the online portion and forgot to download the license, sign back into the US Soccer Digital Coaching Center where you can retrieve your license. Go into your profile section of the DCC page and that locate the link to retrieve your PDF certificate.
The CDYSL Office needs at least the online license certificate to coach a travel team during any given season.

F license Course - Currently in the Capital District Youth Soccer League (CDYSL) and Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) all coaches and assistants starting in September 2015 must have a coaching license to coach a competitive travel team.  
There are 2 parts to the course.  One part is the on-line module that is produced by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).  This on-line part costs $25 and when you sign up to take the course you also register on the Digital Coaching Center (DCC). This part takes about 2 hours to complete and is very professionally done.  The second part is a practice part that is about 1hour & 30minutes.  Currently, this part is free and is sponsored by the ENYYSA identified above.  Both parts must be completed within a year of each other.  
The practical part for the last 1.5 years has been free.  However, starting in July there will be a charge for the practical part as well as the normal charge for the on-line part.  The charge for the practical part will be announced soon.  If any club wants to sponsor an F add-on license before the additional charge kicks in then you can contact ENYYSA at 888-536-9972 and ask for Joanne Roth or contact Roy Pfeil at 331-3935 or email him at  All courses must have between 22 and 26 candidates.  Once a course is set up there will be a broadcast to the CDYSL database announcing the course and a registration process set up on the ENYYSA website.
