The United Soccer Coaches Convention is the world’s largest gathering of soccer coaches and administrators and more than 12,000 people attended this year’s event. The event provides five days of coaching education, networking and more.
At this year’s event, two Tennessee Soccer Club (TSC) coaches were honored:
- Kyle Roelke named TN Competitive Girls Coach of the Year
- Stuart Brown named TN Competitive Boys Coach of the Year & United Soccer Coach Boys South Region Coach of the Year
Also the 1999 Girls Showcase were recognized as National Champions and inducted into the TN Soccer Hall of Fame.
“The 2018 Convention in Philadelphia was an educational opportunity for multiple members of the Tennessee Soccer Club staff to further educate ourselves on the current US Youth soccer initiatives. While at the Convention, we watched field sessions with local players, presented by some of the top coaches from around the world. We were able to also sit in on lectures with US National Team Staff and discussions with players like Thierry Henry. One of the highlights of the event was being able to share and celebrate our Executive Director, Stuart Brown, as he received the United Soccer Coach Award as the Boys Coach of the Year in the South Region,” said Nicole Aquila, Director of Coaching U12-U15 Girls.
