World Class Coaching Staff
One of SC del Sol's defining characteristics is that we are a coach-led youth soccer club. All of the major decisions pertaining to players, teams and programs are made by coaching experts not by volunteer parents. Our coaching staff is committed to setting, maintaining and pursuing the highest standards of excellence for the players, the teams and the Club.
Our coaches are full-time professionals that are a dedicated mix of former professional players, fully certified coaches and professional educators. At SC del Sol we set extremely high standards for our coaches in terms of qualifications, preparation and behavior. In turn, the coaching staff set challenging yet attainable standards for the players. SC del Sol is unique in that the coaching staff work with all players within the club. From the Mini Kickers program through to our high level competitive program, all of our players are exposed to the highest quality of coaching expertise to be found in the State.
At SC del Sol our aim is to develop successful teams by developing well-rounded soccer players that participate in a player-centered training program. In order to achieve this objective, SC del Sol coaches are required to further their soccer education by participating in licensing courses conducted by the United States Soccer Federation and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. For our coaches that have achieved the highest level of licensing (the A license) they are encouraged to pursue continuing education courses and coaching courses overseas through UEFA.
In addition to professional licensing, SC del Sol conducts regular in-house coaching clinics that are mandatory for all of the staff. All aspects of the curriculum are touched upon and new ideas are exchanged in an open and supportive manner. Our coaching staff are a cohesive group who believe that all future success is based upon developing a club training program that is structured around the needs of every player in the club.
