WYSA Certification Courses

WYSA Soccer Coach Certification Courses

All MC United Soccer coaches must be certified by the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association. MCU does reimburse coaches for expenses incurred for training. Please contact the MCU coaching coordinator, Lance Kelly, prior to registering for a WYSA certification course in order to ensure proper reimbursement.

All WYSA clinics and courses are listed on the WYSA site

WYSA has updated the coaching requirements as follows:

  • A team must be coached by an individual who is appropriately licensed for the age group and competition level being coached. If the coach is not appropriately licensed, that individual is not eligible to coach the team during sanctioned matches. All coaches, head and assistant, must be properly licensed. The following are the minimum license requirements per age and competition level:

  • Recreational coaches are required to have, at minimum, completed 1 In-Person Grassroots Module OR a Y1 or Y2 coaching certificate.
  • Coaches working with Youth Academy teams are required to have completed a combination of 2 In-Person Grassroots modules, recommended 4v4, 7v7 OR hold a US Soccer ‘E’ License. 
  • Coaches of 11U through 18U Classic teams are required to have completed 2 In-Person Grassroots Modules, one must be 9v9 or 11v11 OR hold a US Soccer ‘E’ License.
