Course Description: 
This course will examine all facets of coaching, specifically the coaching of soccer, as well as investigate the roles of sport media and the general impact of soccer on communities. Using various texts, videos, lectures, and on-field discussions, we will engage in not only the technical/tactical aspects of the game of soccer, but also how to manage the different facets of running a soccer team. Additionally, we will juxtapose the coaching methods, tactics and technical nuances of the different nations we will be visiting. Furthermore, we will study the important cultural, social, and political roles of soccer in these locations, as well as worldwide. Finally, to recognize how soccer, as well as mediated soccer, can be approached critically and read in different ways, topics such as globalization, nationalism, labor migration, hooliganism, fandom, colonialism, identification, and commercialism will be discussed.
