The Cal South Coaches Association, in partnership with Swansea City Association Football Club of the Barclays® (English) Premier League and the Ventura County Fusion of the PDL, will host a specialty coaching education event at Oxnard College in Oxnard, California on July 27-28, 2012.


Titled “Behind the Scenes at an EPL Club,” the two-day program will consist of several sessions targeted to give registered participants a unique chance to understand what it takes to coach, train and play in one of the most revered soccer leagues in the world. Field training sessions on both days will take place at Oxnard College, while classroom sessions will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ventura.
Sessions during “Behind the Scenes at an EPL Club” will be taught by several members of the Swansea City AFC coaching staff, including their newly appointed manager Michael Laudrup, the former Danish football superstar, best known for his lengthy and prolific tenure with the Denmark National Team and for winning a combined five consecutive La Liga titles with Spanish clubs Barcelona (1990-1993) and Real Madrid (1994). Laudrup scored 37 goals in 104 international appearances for his national team, and served as team captain for 28 matches in 1994-1995. He retired as a player following his appearance in the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France. Laudrup was appointed manager of the club on June 15 as part of a two-year contract.
