CHICAGO (August 22, 2006) – U.S Soccer’s National Coaching Schools have been providing high-quality coaching instruction for over 36 years, and this winter you will have a chance to take your coaching education to a new level. The first courses of 2007 have been scheduled for the first week of January, giving every coach a chance to obtain a nationally recognized “A”, “B” or “C” level license and increase their knowledge of the game.

All January coaching schools will take place from Jan. 2-10, 2007, in four warm-weather locations. The National “A” License course will take place at the University of Tampa in Tampa, Fla. and the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. A National “B” and “C” License course will be offered at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., and at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

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.
