Host a Trainer

We are delighted to welcome back Challenger Sports British Soccer Coaches to train our players and coaches for the 2017 season! Challenger Coaches are hosted by families in our area and committed to coaching our teams, players and coaches from February to November. They also manage and run our holiday and summer camps. Look for the coaches in their distinctive British Soccer Jerseys on your soccer field ready to help teams during practice. We are lucky to have Adam Butler returning as a coach this year from England. Joining him will be Matteo Marotti from Italy, and Natalie Poole also from England.

Host families make this experience possible, as they house the coaches for the duration from 1 week to the full 9 month experience. The coaches have their own transportation and are taken care of by Challenger in regards to health care, wages, and flights. They are also on working visas and have gone through rigorous background checks to get into the USA and to work for Challenger Sports. Currently we are looking for housing for Matteo and Natalie.

We ask that a family will provide somewhere to sleep, shower, do laundry, and evening dinners. Although the coaches are working evenings, they will be around to deliver those extra soccer practices to your kids also!!

We are looking for as many host families as possible so please contact Jamie Kent (jkent@challengersports.com) if you are interested, to find out more information and to ask any questions.

Please find
background information and bios for both of our Challenger coaches needing housing attached.

Thank you so much,
Challenger Sports and Alameda Soccer Club
