US Soccer Grassroots Pathway Coach Certification Courses

Hello NASA Coaches

First of I wanted to thank you for volunteering your time to Coach in the North Andover Soccer Association. You are a key reason why NASA remains one of the top soccer organizations in Massachusetts. At NASA we continue to provide the support and development so you become more comfortable, and a better coach, in our program. It is in this light that I want to make you aware of additional training that is available to you through the US Soccer Grassroots License Pathway Program.

This pathway provides both on-line and face-to-face licensing opportunities. All the details about the Grassroots Pathway can be found at:


There are pathways for 4v4, 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11.

NASA will reimburse you for the one-time costs for all on-line courses and most face-to-face courses. If you are planning to take a face-to-face please let me know so I can advise if the fee will be reimbursed.

Reimbursement is made when you provide the license certificate after completing the course.

With the above in mind, North Andover will be hosting a 4v4 certification course in May. The outdoor face-to-face portion is planned for Sunday May 23rd from 2-4P at Reynolds Field here in town. We will plan to complete the 2 hour on-line via a Zoom call on Wednesday night, May 19th, time to be solidified, but no earlier than 7PM start time. North Andover’s Mark McDevitt will be the instructor for both portions.

MYSA requires a minimum of 14 Coaches, but no more than 16, to be able to offer the session. I would love to have this be an all North Andover session. If you are interested and available to attend, please respond back no later than this Friday, May 14th. I will take first come first serve. You can RSVP to this email if you would like to attend. I will provide the registration details at the end of this week.

If you have any questions specific to the Grassroots sessions, or about other upcoming sessions you see on-line on the mayouthsoccer.org website, please contact Tamie Endow of MYSA, tendow@mayouthsoccer.org.

Thank you

Dave Parsons
