After looking through my brochure, I’m excited to see that many coaches, instructors and staff from FIFA projects I’ve worked on previously, and many of my fellow Americans, will be here.
The idea for this session came about thanks to Ryan Knapp’s and my work together on the new NSCAA.com, a project which began in August 2010 and was a labor of love for the two of us.
