CHICAGO (Sept. 11, 2009) — U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Department will conduct National Coaching Schools for A, B and C License Courses on Jan. 2-10, 2010, in California, Florida and a West Coast location yet to be determined. Registration for each course will open on Thursday, Sept. 17, after a pre-registration period for active members of CoachesNet, U.S. Soccer’s official coaches club. Current CoachesNet members will have the first opportunity to register for a winter course beginning today.   

The National “A” License course will take place at the University of Tampa in Tampa, Fla., and The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.  The National “B” and “C” License courses will be offered at IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., and at a West Coast location to be announced. 

U.S. Soccer will also be hosting two “A” Audit specific courses Jan. 2-8. Current “A” license coaches looking to renew their license may register for either the course at The Home Depot Center or the course at the IMG Academies. The “A” Audit course is separate from the “A” License course and focuses on the latest trends in soccer through guest lecturers and incorporating U.S. National Teams.

Participants at U.S. Soccer’s National Coaching Schools will have a chance to learn from some of the nation’s top-level instructors, including current and former national team, professional and international coaches. The licensing programs are focused on teaching soccer coaches up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge so coaches can improve the every day training environment for elite players, so they can fulfill their potential as international, professional, collegiate or youth soccer players.
