Seeing as though you're 17, you might want to start building a resume, so start coaching little kids and then work your way up. An example is a recreational team. I'm not sure if you can automatically be licensed like that. UEFA is in Europe so if you want to be licensed by UEFA, I'd plan a trip to the EU.

Good luck.

How's the pursuit of coaching coming? If you haven't found this it is a good place to start.http://fysa.com/coaching/index_E.html Plus there are a ton of web sites to get info from. You might check out local clubs and see if any need an assistant, to get an idea of what's involved. Good luck

http://www.nscaa.com/

That is the website of the national soccer coaching association of america.
The list of all the courses they offer is on the following link:
http://www.nscaa.com/educatingcoaches.php

Internationally though, the UEFA A and UEFA Pro licenses are preferred (in most of the European countries they are compulsory) to coach at the top level. You can get details on how to get the licenses on the English FA's website (they have a dedicated website for learning: www.thefa.com/TheFA/FALearning)
From whatever research I have conducted, the best places to get it from are England and Scotland.
The Largs school (Scotland) has had quite a few famous managers that attended, most notably Jose Mourinho.
If you need any more help, post on the forum.
All the best !
