The US Youth Soccer University is the first-ever gathering of educational resources designed to educate members on a multitude of subjects so they can perform better on and off the field of play. Georgia Soccer are currently implementing their bespoke instance of the University and will make it available for members over the coming months.

The University will bring together content from partners like TrueSport, Hospital for Special Surgery, Soccer Parenting, US Center for Safe Sport, Mojo and US Center for Mental Health and Sport. Alongside that, there will be a number of unique courses designed and developed by US Youth Soccer.
Georgia Soccer will leverage the national curriculum to offer a number of courses tailored to players, parents, coaches, administrators and officials.
The University has two subscription tiers, freemium which contains introductory courses and access to the platform, and premium, which also includes exclusive course content for $5 per annum. Learners will be able to sign up to the University and select the subscription model that best suits their needs.
