CHICAGO (Monday, April 21, 2003) â€“ When the U.S. takes on Mexico in their long-awaited World Cup rematch on May 8 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, U.S. Soccer will be conducting another popular coaching symposium in conjunction with the game.
The coaching symposium will provide coaches with a unique opportunity to glean up-to-date information on team preparation strategies for important tournaments and events. The popular U.S. Soccer game-related symposiums always include hands-on instruction from experienced National Team coaches, with practical information that coaches can apply directly to their teams and systems.
The USA-Mexico symposium will feature four scheduled presenters, including U.S. Menâ€™s National Team assistant coach Glenn Myernick, U.S. Menâ€™s and Womenâ€™s National Regional III staff coaches Juan Carlos Michia and Dave Simeone, and St. Stephenâ€™s Academy coach Bobby Murphy.
At the end of the symposium all the participants will get the chance to watch the one of the best rivalries in the world â€“ the U.S. vs. Mexico at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
Registration is open to all coaches, with â€œAâ€ License coaches attending the symposium earning one unit toward the renewal of their license. Cost to register for the symposium is $45 dollars for U.S. Soccer Coaching Organization members and $55 dollars for non-members. The cost of the symposium includes one ticket to the USA vs. Mexico match at Reliant Stadium on May 8. In order to assure a spot in the symposium, interested coaches must register by May 6.
To register for the event coaches can contact Juan Carlos Michia at firstname.lastname@example.org or James Clarkson, the State Director of Coaching for South Texas, at email@example.com.
