Shenandoah Valley United (SVU) takes pride in our coaches and their level of coaching education. Coaches are encouraged to start their coaching journey with the free Introduction to Grassroots Coaching online course. It is the gateway to the Grassroots Pathway and lays the foundation for success. After the Intro course, coaches can choose any of the grassroots courses. To take the D License course, coaches need at least two grassroots in-person courses, one of which must be the 11v11, and an online license.

SVU values coaching education. To support our team staff, any active registered coach who passes USSoccer coaching certification may submit for reimbursement for up to two (2) in-person courses and two (2) online courses.  Reimbursement for the D License and above must be pre-approved by SVU staff prior to registering.

The following coaches have their respective diplomas / certifications.
