CHICAGO (Nov. 17, 2014) –In an effort to continue providing unique coaching opportunities to its membership, U.S. Soccer presents the 2015 U.S. Soccer Coaching Educational Workshop, which will take place March 14-22 in Lisbon, Portugal. Registration will open on Monday, Nov. 17 for the 2015 Education Workshop.
Since its inception in March 2009, more than 250 coaches have traveled internationally with the U.S. Soccer Coaching Department to Argentina, Brazil, England, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain. In 2015, the Educational Workshop will be held in Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal.
“The Coaching Education Department has placed an emphasis on developing stronger connections with leading countries around the world,” said U.S. Soccer Director of Coaching Education, Dave Chesler. “Spending time in Portugal will offer yet another perspective on how to develop players and coaches.”
During the workshop, coaches are scheduled to visit the Portuguese Federation, take part in educational lectures with professional coaches, and attend professional training sessions and games. Current U.S. Soccer “A” licensed coaches will earn eight (8) Continuing Education Units upon completion of the workshop.
Entering its seventh year, the aim of U.S. Soccer’s international coaching development program is to expose U.S. coaches to foreign federations and clubs. Participants learn about other international development programs and interact directly with top-level coaches, administrators and players from some of the best clubs in the world.
