Sounds like only coaches that work for The Man are invited. That's what I read into the sign up form anyway.

I misread that. At first it didn't sound like club coaches were invited unless you were affiliated with a school. I'm going now hopefully.

Yeah, they weren't invited at first - I spoke with the director of USTFCCA when he asked me to promote it and he decided to re-write the press release to include any interested coaches.
