Our professional coaches are licensed through USSF and United Soccer Coaches.

The Director of Coaching is responsible for hiring new coaching staff at Nashville United Soccer Academy and will focus on finding qualified, experienced coaches who believe in our mission, vision, philosophy, and goals.

Our goal of player to coach ratio is around 12:1 in the lower academies, and 18:1 in the upper academies.

Players are continually assessed by our coaches to ensure they are training in a pool within their academy where they can achieve a measure of success while still being appropriately challenged.

Academy Lead Coaches will communicate with the parents on a consistent basis to provide constructive feedback on the Academies progress and training goals for the month ahead.

Individual player evaluations, with player and parents, will be provided during the calendar year.

In our older academies, our coaches will help guide players and parents through the recruiting and admissions process for college and university and for excelling players with professional clubs.
