Like all of you, we’re adapting to the shifting circumstances we find ourselves in due to COVID-19. We remain committed to serving members in the best way possible by remaining true to what the association provides: advocacy, education and service.
Here are immediate steps we are taking:
- Yesterday the National Office of United Soccer Coaches began working remotely in accordance with CDC guidelines.
- All in-person courses through April have been cancelled or postponed with future courses returning as safety allows. However, we are also exploring a new expansion of our advanced education digital offerings.
- All of United Soccer Coaches resources will go towards expanding your online member benefits of community, information services, education, professional development and more. Visit UnitedSoccerCoaches.org/eLearning for two new eLearning courses and take advantage of the many other eLearning courses and over 1,200 activities, tools and videos in the Online Resource Library, FREE for members. Download the app for immediate access: Apple Download / Android Download
- Our Advocacy Council and all the coaching groups it represents — youth, high school, college, pro, Faith-Based, Latino, Women, LGBT and Allies, Black, Disability Allies and Native American — have stepped up on connecting our community. This is a time when soccer coaches must stick together and support each other. Learn more about the Advocacy Groups here.
Member Services is open and available at firstname.lastname@example.org or (816) 471-1941 for your questions and concerns. They can help direct you to the right resources.
Utilize the United Soccer Coaches Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn pages as an important way for coaches to stay connected and informed. It will be the first place we are updating news, information and resources.
All of us at United Soccer Coaches are here to support you. These are difficult times, but this too shall pass. Our soccer coaching community will be stronger and better connected for it.
All the best and stay safe,
