Have you ever wondered what it requires to manage a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo or prepare a goalkeeper such as Eduardo for the World Cup?
You’ll be able to find out when the annual U.S. Youth Soccer Adidas Workshop takes place in Louisville Thursday through Saturday.
The three-day event at the Kentucky International Convention Center is expected to attract more than 2,000 soccer coaches, administrators, referees and enthusiasts.
The largest event of its kind for youth sports in the United States, it will feature education sessions for those involved in the game, field demonstrations and an exhibit hall. A highlight of the weekend will be the U.S. Youth Soccer Awards Gala, which will showcase successes of the past year and over a lifetime.
One of the more interesting workshop sessions will feature Portugal’s national team goalkeeper coach Dan Gaspar, who will speak at 3 p.m. Friday about what impacted the country’s performance in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He will discuss how the team prepared for opponents, including eventual winner Spain, which knocked Portugal out in the round of 16.
