U.S. Soccer Winter National Coaching Schools Take Place January 2 -10, 2008 at Four Locations

CHICAGO (October 12, 2007) – U.S. Soccer’s National Coaching Schools have been providing high-quality coaching instruction for over 38 years, and this winter you will have a chance to take your coaching education to a new level. The first courses of 2008 have been scheduled for the first week of January; giving every coach a chance to obtain a FIFA 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 three 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. The National “B” and “C” License courses will be offered at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., and a soon to be announced west coast site.

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, WUSA and international 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.

As always, space is limited for these select courses. Registration is underway, apply now to ensure your spot. More information on the National Coaching Schools is available at or by contacting the U.S. Soccer Coaching Department at or 312-528-1219.
