U.S. Soccer Winter National Coaching Schools to Take Place January 2-10, 2005

Limited Space is Available at Select Sites; Don’t Miss the Opportunity to Earn a Nationally Recognized License and Learn From Some of the Nation’s Top Coaches
U.S. Soccer’s National Coaching Schools have been providing high-quality coaching instruction for 35 years, and this January you will have a chance to take your coaching education to a new level. The first courses of 2005 have been scheduled for the first week of January, giving every soccer coach in the country a chance to obtain a nationally recognized A, B or C level license and to increase your knowledge of the beautiful game.

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 testing to test your levels with the best in the country.

All four January coaching schools will take place from Jan. 2-10, 2005, in three warm-weather locations. The National “A” License course will take place at the University of Tampa in Tampa, Fla. A National “C” License course will be offered at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., and the University of Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nev., will host a National “B” License course as well as a National “C” License course. Space is always limited for these select courses, as only 350 total coaches will be accepted to participate in the intensive nine days of instruction and testing.
