Coaching Education

AC Sandhills Recreation Soccer would not exist without its Volunteer Coaches. Thanks to the hours dedicated to spreading the knowledge of and love for soccer, our coaches are able to provide a positive experience for our recreation players.

Coaching Education:
Digital Coaching Center (DCC) - US Soccer Federation Courses (USSF)
The Digital Coaching Center, DCC, is a great resource to use to further your education in the sport of soccer.  This is a online educational platform, created by USSF, which allows coaches to create a personal profile, register for courses, communicate with technical staff, take part in online courses, create session plans with an online graphics tool, access an archive of U.S. Soccer training sessions and much more.

AC Sandhills highly encourages all their coaches to complete the USSF "F" License.
