When do I pay?
You can now pay online when you register for the clinic. You can also mail your payment in or bring it with you to turn in at check-in. Understanding that most clubs or schools pay for coaches who attend the NSCS we try to be very flexible with this. You can speed up the check-in process by paying in advance.
Can I use a credit card?
Yes. You can now use a credit card to pay when registering online. We will have computers able to handle this registration on site during check-in as well.
Who do I make the check out to?
University of Notre Dame
Where can I mail the check?
National Soccer Coaching Seminar
107 Joyce Center
Notre Dame, IN 46556
Why should I register early when I can just do so at check-in?
Registering early locks you into the lower registration rates.
Do I have to participate in the clinic like I do when I go to coaching schools?
No. We will have the Notre Dame Men's and Women's soccer teams as demonstrators as well as a couple of local youth teams.
Where are the field sessions held?
All field sessions are held in our indoor facility, Loftus, which houses a full size indoor football field.
Do you video tape the sessions?
We do video tape the sessions and make them available for sale to all coaches who attend the clinic as well as to those who can't make it.
What does the video cost?
The DVD cost is $25 for coaches who attend the clinic and $100 ($20 per session) for those who do not attend. **Prices subject to change
Why should I come to this coaches clinic?
The National Soccer Coaches Seminar is a great place to continue to learn new trends in the game from two of the great coaches in the country in our men's and women's Notre Dame head coaches. All of our clinicians are very approachable and accessible. After each session the clinician will go over to a white board and answer questions attendees have regarding not only the session just run, but any other questions that come up. Coaches will also have the chance to eat lunch and mingle with members of the Notre Dame soccer teams. This lunch is included in the seminar fee.
Do I have to pay to attend lunch?
No. This is included in the seminar fee.
How long are the sessions?
We plan on each session lasting around 45 minutes. This allows the clinician time over at our white board to answer any questions coaches have following the session and time for the next clinician to set up.
Is there a store where I can buy soccer equipment?
Yes. Both our men's and women's teams will have a store open during the clinic. Please note, this store can NOT take a credit card so please bring cash or check.
Is there a host hotel?
Yes, every year we make an agreement with a local hotel to get our attendees a discounted rate. Below is this year's hotel:
Waterford Estates Lodge
Reference the 2017 National Soccer Coaching Seminar when calling and you will receive the discounted rate of $79/night.
Is there a raffle or silent auction?
Yes, we have both a raffle and silent auction. Both can only accept cash or check.
What items are in the raffle and silent auction?

What all do I get if I come to the clinic?
