UK International Soccer
Host Our Professional Coaches Working On Soccer Programs In Your Community

All families are invited to participate in this unique program. Our coaches have the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the American lifestyle, while host families learn about the way of life in another country, cultural differences and enhance their soccer education. The differences of our language and backgrounds, combined with the love of soccer ensure a memorable week and long lasting friendships.

Examples of Our Coaches
Interested in hosting a Coach but have questions?


How long do coaches stay for?

Depending on the season, we are looking for families to either host our coaches for one week in the summer, or multiple weeks in the spring/fall.

What are the ages of the coaches?

Our coaches are generally between the ages of 19 to 30 years.

Can we request a male or female coach?

Yes, we try to accommodate your needs where possible.

Can we host more than one coach?

Yes, however we do like to make sure that every family who would like to host gets the opportunity.

What do I need to provide the coach with?

Each coach will need a bed, access to a shower and laundry facilities. While these are the basic needs, host families can offer much more, such as the use of their computers for email access and to join the family for meals.

What transport do the coaches need?

None, each group of coaches working on the camp in your area will have their own transport or access to group transport. Due to insurance purposes coaches are not allowed to provide transport for any players to and from camp, or drive other vehicles not insured by our organization.

Do I need to entertain the coaches?

No, but you certainly have the option to include them in family activities or even sightseeing trips. Coaches really do appreciate getting a locals tour of the area but any social events are not a necessity. The coach's first priority is to work, therefore all social activities must be scheduled around the soccer program.

How are your coaches vetted?

Our coaches have all gone through a strict interview process, a police background check and completed our extensive orientation. Each coach is also Safe Haven certified.

Are there any guidelines the coaches have to follow?

We pride ourselves on the behavior and integrity of our coaches. Our coaches have signed our code of conduct and fully understand that if you have any specific rules and regulations they must be adhered to.

When would I find out which coach will be staying with us?

Host families usually find out who their assigned coach is on the Sunday before camp. Your Regional Director will be able to give you a list of coach names before the program if it's your preference to have an idea who you will host, but generally the Camp Director determines which coach goes with which family, unless an agreement has been made due to special requirements.

If I have any concerns during the week, is there anyone I can call?

Yes! You would simply contact your Regional Director, or our office at (855) UK SOCCER

  • The camp went great! Not only that, but when Kent told the kids on Friday that this was the end, he was greeted by a resounding, unanimous “One More Week!, One More Week!” from all the campers. Obviously they really enjoyed the camp and the coaches. They were truly terrific. The coaches did a fantastic job, as always!

  • I want to let you know how wonderful your Soccer Camp Program was. My son Mitchell is 7 and went into the camp with a passive attitude about soccer. Now that camp is over he has a fire inside him and can’t wait for our regular AYSO season to start. The two coaches, Max and Patti were awesome. They were both so great with the kids, kept the group focused, made sure everyone played fair and everyone had fun.

  • Thanks to UKIS & AYSO Soccer Camps for helping deliver our U12 Coach Training. It was by far the most successful coach training that we have had in our region for as long as I have been involved in West Chicago AYSO. We are excited about the high quality of the training and the expectations that it brings for our spring season.
