For over twenty years Challenger Sports and British Soccer, has given football coaches from the United Kingdom and Ireland the chance to travel, coach, and be a part of the soccer explosion in the US and Canada. Better yet, not only does this give coaches the experience of a lifetime, it can also lead to a potential full time career in soccer in the USA.
Contracts come in two different forms:
Summer Camps - Running approximately from the beginning of May until the end of August (some shorter terms available). Involves coaching for approximately 6 hours per day from Monday - Friday, with a mix of locations throughout the summer. You'll have the chance to coach in different cities and states.
Academy trainer- This is a longer contract, running from for 5-9 months. It incorporates the summer camp season, but outwith those months you will be coaching with club and town teams.
Full training is provided, so extensive coaching experience is not required. However, ideally all candidates will have some form of coaching or playing background. A Scottish FA coaching qualification is desirable, but not essential.
If selected, we will progress you to one of our recruitment days (the Glasgow recruitment day is 4th November 2018, Edinburgh is 2nd November and Dundee is 23rd November, however other opportunities will be available). If you are taken forward, we will guide you through the whole process from start to finish. This includes training, visas and flights.
