CHICAGO (Nov. 11, 2013) – Registration will open on Tuesday, Nov. 19, for the 2014 U.S. Soccer Coaching Education Workshop. In an effort to continue providing unique coaching opportunities to its membership, U.S. Soccer presents the 2014 Educational Workshop, which will take place March 15-23, 2014 in England.

Since its inception in March 2009, more than 250 coaches have traveled internationally with the U.S. Soccer Coaching Department to Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain. In 2014, the Educational Workshop will be held in the cities of Burton Upon Trent, London, and Manchester.

During the workshop, coaches will visit the The FA’s state-of-the-art national training center, take part in educational lectures with professional coaches, and attend professional training sessions and games.

Entering its sixth year, the aim of U.S. Soccer’s international coaching development program is to expose U.S. coaches to foreign federations and clubs. Participants learn about other international development programs and interact directly with top-level coaches, administrators and players from some of the best clubs in the world. The focus of this workshop will be to observe and interact with coaches from English professional clubs and the The FA on how they develop players and coaches.

“The Coaching Education Department has placed an emphasis on developing stronger connections with leading countries around the world,” said U.S. Soccer Director of Coaching Education, Dave Chesler. “Spending time with the The FA will offer yet another perspective on how to develop players and coaches.”

Coaches who participate in the workshop will arrive in Manchester on Saturday, March 15 and finish the program on Sunday, March 23 in London.

Current U.S. Soccer “A” licensed coaches will earn eight (8) Continuing Education Units upon completion of the workshop.
