How to Get Involved
If you are interested in getting involved in the association and have a desire to give back to the coaching community, then our Advocacy Groups are a great way to get your foot in the door:
NEEDED-College Advocacy Reps
The Advocacy Council is launching a search for Advocacy Representatives for DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, and Junior College. There will be a Rep for each Division and Gender. These Reps will focus on the non-legislative needs of coaches in their Division and work with the Advocacy Council to address those needs. Please consider joining us as we work to improve the game for College Coaches! Qualified candidates are required to be a current member of United Soccer Coaches and hold a head coaching position at their college or university.
