Please Refer to the FAQ Before Contacting Us

Updated December 29, 2022

A large number of the questions we receive through our Contact portal have answers posted in either our site's FAQ or on the US Soccer Learning Center FAQ. We strongly recommend using these resources to get more timely answers. If you do have questions on registration and licensure, please contact the SRC to ensure you get accurate information. We are getting a lot of reports of duplicate accounts being set up on the USSLC due to erroneous instructions to create new accounts there instead of linking to existing ones!
