Welcome to United Soccer Coaches Program
In partnership with United Soccer Coaches and the Scottish Football Association, we are proud to offer you an exclusive coaching education experience in Scotland where you will attend the Scottish C License presented by the Scottish FA, pro club visits and a week of high-quality coaching education. This experience takes place at Oriam, Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre, where Scotland’s National Teams train regularly, and provides attendees with an opportunity to obtain the Scottish C License. This is an exclusive chance to live and learn football in one of the world’s most passionate soccer countries! In addition, during your stay, you will have time to explore the beautiful city of Edinburgh.
The course will be delivered in 3 phases. Phases I and II will be online from February 1st - 5th, 2021. Phase III will take place in Scotland from December 12-18, 2021.
PLEASE NOTE: There are many changes coming out of COVID, one of which is the law around including travel insurance in the price of a trip, we are no longer able to include it. We are working on updating our website below in the "Includes" section to remove it. If you want travel insurance you will need to add it separately from your trip registration. At Generation adidas International, we recommend you purchase a travel protection plan to help protect you and your trip investment! For your convenience, we offer plans through Travelex Insurance Services. Travelex’s Travel protection plans can help provide coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, Trip Delay, Baggage Delay and more. The full coverage terms and details, including limitations and exclusions, are contained in the insurance policy on the following website.
