More than 11,000 soccer coaches, players and administrators to gather for five-day event

Soccer mania is set to hit downtown Los Angeles January 11-15, 2017 when the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) hosts its annual National Convention at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The convention attracts more than 11,000 attendees, including 6,300 coaches from all 50 states across the U.S. and 35 countries around the world.

Described by Sports Illustrated as ‘Soccer Woodstock’ and by others as ‘Soccer Heaven’, this five-day event is where coaches come to invest in themselves, their players, and the sport of soccer. The schedule consists of more than 250 education sessions and live field demonstrations presented by some of the top names in the profession. It is also home to the Major League Soccer (MLS) Superdraft and the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) College Draft.

“We are so excited to bring the convention to Los Angeles next year,” said NSCAA CEO, Lynn Berling-Manuel. “We have an incredible line-up of speakers and sessions designed for coaches of all levels, as well as some fun social events you won’t want to miss.”

In addition to the educational programming, there are more than 350 exhibiting companies. Coaches also have the opportunity to earn certified diplomas, certificates and college credit, with more than 750 awards presented during the five-day event.

The full education and meeting schedule will be released later this month, but registration is now open on the event website. For more information, visit NSCAAconvention.com/LA17.
