STAFFING UPDATES
Technical Advisor Darren Sawatzky j oins us this June at the first annual Leadership Conference, where he will begin his work with our coaches and directors on the new coaching platform to be introduced this season. 

Our new age-group coordinators will also help launch this style of play as it is adopted by all of our coaches and teams. Age-group coordinators can be found at the bottom of the coaching slate.

Adopting a club-wide coaching methodology, coupled with even more programs to be announced, means that we are making a committment to deliver the same "premier" experience to all teams, at all levels, making it easier for players to move between teams.

Although US Soccer is pleased to see the new, proven leadership in the club, they are disappointed that our B05 Development Academy (DA) team did not complete their commitment through the end of the current season. As a result, US Soccer did not renew our DA program for the upcoming year, but they are already committed to working with us to bring DA back in 2019-20 for B08, B07, & B06.  

As a club, we are already poised to provide the best player development program and competition opportunities for for ALL of our teams moving  forward . Our Coaching Directors and Technical Advisors have the resources and the support they need to move all of our coaches, players, and our program to the next level.
