Past Presidents

From humble beginnings as an informal get-together of a handful of collegiate coaches who lingered after a meeting of the Eastern Intercollegiate Coaches Association, United Soccer Coaches has grown into the largest organization of its kind in the United States. Starting with 80 members that year, the organization has grown to 30,000 strong. That they touch the game of soccer at every level and work with both genders makes United Soccer Coaches unique on the American sporting landscape.
