January 17, 2014. Coaches Across Continents Founder Nick Gates spoke this past weekend at the NSCAA Convention. The topic was “The Real Power of Soccer: Partnerships for Sport in Development.” Joining Nick on the panel were our partners One World Futbol as well as Mary McVeigh from Soccer Without Borders, another strong sport for social impact group whom we work directly with in Uganda. The NSCAA Convention is the largest soccer coaching convention in the world and had an estimated 10,000 people in attendance.
The NSCAA convention allowed our three senior strategists to network and mingle with coaches, organization, and leaders in the sports industry throughout the convention. The Coaches Across Continents team worked the convention alongside two of our main partners at their booths on the convention floor with One World Futbol and XL Soccer World. The work that Coaches Across Continents has done has garnered numerous international awards and offers to speak at various events.
