We encourage coaches to experiment with the planning tools and create any content that helps them develop their players. The planning tools are primarily intended as an educational tool for coaches using U.S. Soccer's Coaching Education methodology, for Grassroots and Professional Pathway courses.
When creating content, the only mandatory value is a title. If any of the other values do not apply to your content, you may leave them blank. When creating content for a U.S. Soccer coaching course, the planning tools will prompt you to define all values that are part of our methodology.
