After our participation in Philadelphia in January KingsTalent will again be present at the National Soccer Coaches of America Association (NSCAA) Convention in 2016. Early Januari this event is scheduled in Baltimore.
KingsTalent will seize this opportunity to put their talents in the spotlights with the attending college soccer coaches.
This 4 day event is organized for all (college) soccer coaches in the US for sharing knowledge and development in present-day soccer. The fact that soccer is seriously in development in the US can be verified by the presence of big important European soccer clubs at this convention. Here is a short summary of the clubs and national soccer associations who will be giving a presentation or a field session at this event.
Amongst others FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Bayern Munchen, Chelsea, US Soccer, Celtic, English FA, Scottish FA, Irish FA, DFB (Soccer Association of Germany) will be presenting.
Besides this there are a lot of very interesting presentations from important people in the soccer community which KingsTalent will absolutely go and watch.
Jim Boyce, FIFA – Vice President
Chris Hannan, FOX Sports – Vice President
Amanda vandervort, Major League Soccer (MLS) – President
Lynn Berling-Manuel, NSCAA – CEO
Brad Friedel, Team USA
Eventually, at this convention, there is the official start of the new MLS season with the MLS Superdraft. In this Superdraft the best college players from last season will be drafted by the MLS teams from different conferences. This system is different from the system in Europe where every pro soccer club has it’s own youth academy and/or transfer funds available. In the American MLS the clubs ‘choose’ the best players from their respectable conference divisions. The chosen players will be pursuing a pro soccer career starting next season.
