Registration Filling Up Fast for National Coaching Schools

As part of our continuing effort to service and educate our membership, each Thursday the U.S. Soccer Communications Center will send out an informative article from one of its departments. Once a week, we will post an article/paper/essay that will hopefully enhance your enjoyment and knowledge of the game of soccer - on and off the field.

Get Licensed at U.S. Soccer’s National Coaching Schools this Summer!

Interested in obtaining your U.S. Soccer “A”, “B” or “C” license?  Coaches who want to improve their knowledge of the game and get licensed can do that at U.S. Soccer's National Coaching Schools this summer.

This June and July, six courses are being offered across the United States and the limited numbers of available spots are filling up fast. The courses will take place from June 1-9 (East Stroudsburg, Penn., and San Marcos, Texas), June 22-30 (Deerfield, Mass., and Rohnert Park, Calif.) and July 20-28 (Ogden, Utah and Bowling Green, Ohio).

The coaching schools are led by some of the nation's top coaches, who are actively involved in U.S. Soccer's National Team network.  The nine-day schools include field and classroom sessions and conclude with extensive testing on theoretical and practical applications of the game.
