About United Soccer Coaches

Founded in 1941 and based in Kansas City, Mo., United Soccer Coaches has grown into the world’s largest soccer coaches’ organization that serves members at every level of the game.

United Soccer Coaches works every day to inspire coaches and ignite their passion for the game so they pass it on to players and others in the soccer community. 



  • United Soccer Coaches provides programs and services that enhance, encourage, and contribute to the development and recognition of soccer coaches, their players, and the game we love.

    United Soccer Coaches is the trusted and unifying voice, advocate, and partner for coaches of all levels of the game.



  • The core values of the Association are a commitment to:

    • Deliver value to each member that exceeds their expectations;
    • Uphold a sense of family and acknowledge past contributions;
    • Maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct and sportsmanship;
    • Fiscal responsibility;
    • Meet the needs of a diverse membership;
    • Serve the greater good of the game; and
    • Manage the Association through teamwork and open, honest communications

    United Soccer Coaches is committed to fostering diversity by offering a welcoming and supportive environment for its members, leadership and other constituents, and to nurturing a learning and working environment that respects differences in culture, age, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, religious affiliation and socio-economic status.

    Recognizing that diversity enriches the educational experience, improves the practice and profession of coaching and enhances creativity and professional growth in the soccer community, United Soccer Coaches emphasizes both demographic and intellectual diversity. This requires continued effort to attract and develop qualified persons of diverse backgrounds to participate in its educational, coaching and outreach mission and programs; a coaching curriculum and other learning experiences that provide exposure to diverse cultures, human characteristics and ways of thinking; and an organizational climate that stimulates innovation, values diverse contributions and encourages performance that leads to the advancement of its constituents.

    United Soccer Coaches particularly acknowledges the acute need to remove barriers to the recruitment, retention and advancement of talented members, leadership and other constituents from historically excluded populations who are currently underrepresented.
