U.S. Soccer Coaching Symposium To Be Held March 25-26 in East Rutherford, N.J.

CHICAGO (Feb. 17, 2010) – U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Education Department will conduct a Coaching Symposium on March 25-26, 2011 in conjunction with the U.S. Men’s National Team’s match against two-time World Cup Champion Argentina in East Rutherford. N.J.

The game, which will be played at the new Meadowlands Stadium, will be the second game in 2011 against a South American opponent. The U.S. opened the year with a 1-1 draw against Chile in January.

“The focus of this symposium is to watch, interact and learn from how our national coaching staff and team prepare,” said newly appointed Director of Coaching Education Dave Chesler who will oversee the two-day symposium. “Opportunities like these to come watch our men’s national team play a team like Argentina and interact with our coaching staff are extremely beneficial to any coach looking to expand their soccer knowledge.”

Cost for the symposium is $155 for active U.S. Soccer CoachesNet members and $165 for non-members. Registration includes two-days of educational presentations and discussions, training, a ticket to the game, a pre-game reception, a personalized symposium packet and a U.S. Soccer CoachesNet scouting and training notebook. Registration is open to all coaches.

U.S. Soccer “A” licensed coaches will earn two “Continuing Education Units” for attending this symposium.
