Advocacy Events at Convention

United Soccer Coaches is the coaches’ voice and will advocate for issues that affect the membership at every level of the game. Through our Advocacy Groups, the needs of our members are heard and brought to the Advocacy Council and Board of Directors. Our Advocacy Groups are led by volunteers (coaches like you) who want to give back to the game that has given them so much.

During the United Soccer Coaches Convention there are a plethora of events hosted by our Advocacy Council and Advocacy Groups that allow attendees to meet fellow coaches and add their voice to the conversation.
