The film follows WIS’s own Tracy Hamm in her quest to earn the prestigious UEFA-A license.

About the film: Coach follows Tracy Hamm in her quest to earn the internationally renowned UEFA A coaching license. Tracy 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.
