CHICAGO (April 25, 2006) – U.S Soccer’s National Coaching Schools have been providing high-quality coaching instruction for over 35 years, and this summer you will have a chance to take your coaching education to a new level.  The summer courses are set for June 3-11 and July 8-16, giving every coach a chance to obtain a nationally recognized “A”, “B” or “C” level license and increase their knowledge of the game.

The “A”, “B” and “C” License levels will be offered at three locations over two separate weeks this summer.  Coaches can earn an “A,” “B,” or “C” License at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, on June 3-11, or at Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Mass., on July 8-16.  U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., will host the “B” and “C” License levels July 8-16, 2006.

Participants at U.S. Soccer’s popular National Coaching Schools will have a chance to learn from some of the nation’s top-level instructors, including current and former National Team, MLS and WUSA coaches.  There will be field and classroom sessions every day, as well as field and written exams to test your levels with the best in the country.
