COACHING ASSIGNMENTS FOR 2013
revised: Jan. 26, 2013
Our coaching staff is comprised of a group of dedicated professionals, many of whom possess National licenses issued by the USSF and NSCAA. A number of our coaches currently coach at the collegiate level and/or have played collegiate and professional soccer.
NOTE TO PARENTS: Given the importance of protecting youth soccer players, U.S. Club Soccer has maintained a Risk Management and Background Check Program since its inception. All staff who are required to be registered and are coaching players U20 and below must complete the application, and our coaches (even board members) must adhere to this rule. All coaches, assistant coaches and team managers assigned to a competitive team are also not exempt.
