The US Soccer Foundation Urban Soccer Symposium request for proposals

The Urban Soccer Symposium hosts urban soccer programmers and speakers from across the nation who are dedicated to improving the field of sports-based youth development. The organisers have released a request for proposals (RFP) to be presented at the Symposium.

The U.S. Soccer Foundation is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Urban Soccer Symposium on 10-13 March 2016, at the Washington Marriott-Georgetown hotel.

We are seeking high quality workshop facilitators that will inspire attendees, generate innovative ideas, and provide practically applicable tools for non-profit organisations across the country. Throughout the four-day event, we run concurrent workshops that are 75 minutes in length. Please plan to present for no longer than one hour, and to facilitate a 15 minute discussion following your presentation. Our attendees consist of programme administrative staff and coaches with a wide range of experience and expertise. Reflect on your work, and consider presenting at the 10th annual Urban Soccer Symposium.

Please submit your proposal by 11:59 pm EST on 30 November 2015. Upon submission, you will receive a confirmation email indicating that your proposal has been received; if you do not receive a confirmation, please contact Shaina Ross at You should anticipate notification of acceptance or rejection of your proposal by 18 December 2015. There is a limit of three proposal submissions per organisation. This application is open to all, not strictly urban soccer programmers.
