  • Visit the Housing/Travel page to find more information on the best hotel rates and transportation discounts and rates. 

  • Find a roommate to share hotel expenses

  • United Soccer Coaches diplomas offered during Convention sessions may make your registration eligible for professional development reimbursement from your school/district. Check with your administration to find out! 

  • Check out some online sites that offer discounts at local establishments. 

  • Along with this information, remember to prepare ahead for the possibility of jet lag. 

  • Apply for a passport in advance as it may take a few months to get or if you already have a passport, make sure it will not expire 

  • In order to enter the United States, you must purchase a United States visitor’s visa. Please visit the United States Visitor Visas for more information. 

Transportation 

  • Please visit the Discover Philadelphia page to find more information on different transportation methods that will transport around the Philadelphia area, to and from your hotel, and to other cities around the United States.  

  • These transportation methods include but are not limited to: Amtrak, bus and limousine services, trolley tours, water taxis, airport (domestic or international), shuttle services, cab services, and Uber and Lyft.

  • Uber or Lyft are strongly recommended for short distance transportation around major cities in the United States. (You must download either app on your phone and enter in your credit card information. The total cost of the ride will then be charged to that credit card after your ride is completed.) 

  • Please visit the Transportation page to learn if there are discounts and rates on ground transportation. 

Planning to do Additional Traveling in the United States? 

  • If the next city you are traveling to in the United States requires booking a flight, Expedia is a great website to use to find the most affordable flight and/or hotel options. 

  • Groupon is also a valuable website to use in order to find cheap hotel deals and other great deals based upon your desired destination.
