Congratulations to our Director of Coaching, Danny Agee, on the achievement of his National “D” License. ¬†The “D” License is conferred by the US Soccer Federation on experienced coaches who undergo¬†a 36-hour course with both classroom and field training.
Danny spent 2 full weekends on the field at University of Portland with¬†some¬†of the best professional Club coaches in Oregon. After a rigorous evaluation, course instructors determine¬†whether the passing¬†candidate will receive a State “D” License, or a National “D” License.
Danny stood out – as mentioned by one of the instructors, Joe Sottile – “Danny did well at the “D” license course due to his¬†knowledge¬†of the game developed during his playing career, and his strong interest in continuing to expand his insight of coaching soccer.”
Dallas United looks forward to a bright future of building great players under Danny’s direction.
