Host a United Soccer Coaches Course at Your Facility

Take an active role in developing the level of coaching in your community by hosting a United Soccer Coaches course. Here are our top five reasons to sign up today!

1: Hosting a course for your coaches makes attending easier.  No hotels, no travel, and you can use your own players as demonstrators so your coaches can focus on observing and absorbing the information.

2: Your coaches know each other and are comfortable around one another so this creates the perfect learning environment.  Hosting a United Soccer Coaches  Development Course allows your staff to learn together and to develop a comradery and relationships.  Hosting can be the perfect pre-or-post season ending which prepares everyone for the next season.  

3: By hosting, your organization is demonstrating how important it is for coaches to always be learning and evolving.  Not only are you talking the talk, but you are walking the walk.

4: United Soccer Coaches offers group rates and discounts for organizations wishing to pay a flat fee for everyone to attend. This eliminates the need for additional reimbursements and accounting, while providing a robust savings.

5: By hosting a United Soccer Coaches Development Course, you are demonstrating the importance of proper coaching to your members, parents, board and community.  This will help you improve retention numbers and growth for both players and coaches.
