Brian Schmetzer will help us open YachtCon: Back to School tonight

The Sounders head coach will be the first lecturer of our two-week scholastic endeavor.

There is no one who better represents the Seattle soccer scene than Brian Schmetzer. The Lake City native has been a player or coach on just about every professional indoor and outdoor men’s team the region has ever known. Virtually every soccer player of any note from the region has crossed paths with him in one way or another.

Schmetzer has been an almost nearly as big a part of YachtCons, helping us open each of the past four events. It only makes sense that he’d help us kick off YachtCon: Back to School.

Schmetzer will be joining us right around the 7 PM opening bell and in a nod to how this year’s event is different, we’re inviting you to ask him questions in the chat.

That will hopefully give you a taste of what’s to come over the next two weeks. We’ve worked extra hard to create a curriculum we think you’ll enjoy and find value in, while also presenting it in a format that is both engaging and fun.
