What is Coach about? 

 

Coach follows Tracy Hamm in her quest to earn the internationally renowned UEFA A coaching license. Hamm turned to Europe after her efforts to pursue a top license from U.S. Soccer were obstructed by requirements that candidates seeking waivers to bypass lower certification levels must have played three years of professional soccer. When she graduated from college in 2006, no professional women’s league existed in the United States.

Why we made the film

 

We want today’s children to grow up in a world where it’s normal to see women in positions of authority in sports—and not just as athletes. We hope Tracy’s story encourages our society to examine how some rules are written, however unconsciously, in a way that keeps women from reaching those upper echelons.
