All families are invited to participate in this unique program. Our coaches have the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the American lifestyle, while host families learn about the way of life in another country, cultural differences and enhance their soccer education.
The differences of our language and backgrounds, combined with the love of soccer ensure a memorable week and long lasting friendships.

Our 'Host Family' handbook provides a forum for discussion of everyday situations between you and our UKIS coach. We hope that this will help you have a very memorable and positive hosting experience.
We recently interviewed Kathy Baker from Utah, who’s family have hosted 30 of our UK International Soccer coaches over the span of 6 years. We spoke to her to find out about her experience of hosting, how it benefited the family, what made her decide to host, and any advice for families thinking about hosting a coach.
