The Virtual Period is the time in between the pre-course meeting, the on-field component(s) and after the final field component. The Virtual Period will consist of weekly learning opportunities that will feature a mixture of independent learning using online modules, live virtual meetings led by a licensed U.S. Soccer Instructor and small group meetings that are organized by the coaches. Coaches will be asked to participate in discussions so each person should have access to the internet and a web-camera/live video capabilities. The virtual meetings will take place agreed upon days and times that will be announced during the pre-course meeting (each instructor group will establish their own meeting times).
It is vital that candidates have access to a 9v9 or 11v11 team during this period so that they can practically apply what they learned during the Virtual Period.
