2016 Event Information

LEARN FROM THE BEST at the 2016 Soccer Champions Coaches' Clinic at Mohegan Sun. Led by Tony DiCicco and Ray Reid, this clinic for soccer coaches features multiple days of cutting-edge instruction and on-field demos by some of the world's top soccer minds. Early 2016 presenters include: Dick Bate - FIFA & Asian Football Confederation Technical Consultant & Former FA Elite Coaching Manager (back again by popular demand!); Chicago Fire Technical Director Brian Bliss; Philadelphia Union Academy Director Tommy Wilson; Jeff Cook - Philadelphia Union U16 Academy Head Coach; and, of course, clinic hosts Ray Reid - Four-Time National Coach of the Year - and World Cup Champion & U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Coach Tony DiCicco. 2015 presenters included: U.S. Soccer Technical Director & U.S. U20 National Team Head Coach Tab Ramos; Amanda Cromwell - Head Coach of the 2013 NCAA National Champion Bruins; past MLS Red Bull Head Coach Mike Petke; Sam Snow - U.S. Youth Soccer Director of Coaching, and Ian Barker, NSCAA Director of Coaching.

All attendees become NSCAA members* through our partnership with the National Soccer Coaches Association (an $95 value)* and can earn their "E" License through our partnership with the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (additional $40 fee applies). Based on the success of our break-out sessions for the last three years, we will continue offering these special topic offerings in 2016 (see the Event Schedule page for details).

Sessions will feature top-level youth players/teams who will help our world-class clinicians clearly "paint a picture" of activities, technical skills and training sessions being covered.

Additionally, the Soccer Champions Coaches' Clinic will feature two NSCAA coaching diploma opportunities for this year: Due to popular demand, the NSCAA Goalkeeping Level I Diploma and NEW IN 2015, the NSCAA Player Development Curriculum Diploma. The NSCAA Player Development Curriculum Diploma course offers instruction choices based on the age/development level you are coaching. The NSCAA Goalkeeping Level I Diploma is a 6 hour course meant to empower the team coach with knowledge and practice methods for evaluating a goalkeeper in game situations. The additional cost of either NSCAA coaching diploma is $40, and you can sign up for either opportunity when you register for the event. Please keep in mind that course sessions may run simultaneously and as such, you may only sign up for ONE additional coaching licensing opportunity.

All coaches will receive an attendee event gift bag and a soccer DVD courtesy of Soccer Learning Systems.
