U.S. Soccer Centennial Coaching Symposia Series to be Held Throughout the Year

May 13, 2013
Sessions to be Held in Seattle, Salt Lake

In commemoration of its 100th anniversary, U.S. Soccer is embarking on a year-long celebration honoring its history and setting a path for the future of the sport throughout 2013. In connection with the Centennial, U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Education Department is holding Coaching Symposiums around every home U.S. MNT FIFA World Cup Qualifier. The Symposia Series will give attendees an “insider’s” view of 2014 World Cup qualifying.

 The first symposium of the series was held March 21-22 in Denver, Colo. around the U.S. MNT match versus Costa Rica. During the event, participants interacted with former MNT World Cup players Jeff Agoos and Steve Trittschuh and National Instructor Rene Miramontes. The group had access to a closed-door MNT training session, spoke with head coach Jurgen Klinsmann and received tickets to the sold out qualifying game.

Coaches will have similar educational opportunities at the next two Coaching Symposiums held around the U.S. MNT’s June World Cup Qualifying matches. Registration for each symposium includes two days of professional educational presentations and discussions, guest presenters, exclusive training session access, match ticket, pre-game reception, game-day parking pass, a U.S. Soccer gift, and a 100th anniversary certificate of attendance.

Sessions will be held June 10-11 in Seattle, Washington, and June 17-18 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Registration is open to all U.S. Soccer-licensed coaches.  Applications can be downloaded here. Schedules can also be found at this link.

U.S. Soccer “A” licensed coaches can earn two (2) “Continuing Education Units” for attending a symposium and completing a written technical component related to the match.

Questions regarding the symposium can be directed to Bryan Koch in the U.S. Soccer Coaching Department at bkoch@ussoccer.org or  312-528-1219.
