The search for a permanent Director of Coaching is underway. Former DOC, Andrew Minnis, will remain part of our coaching staff and will continue as head coach in the 2011 and 2012 boys age groups. We love the energy Andrew has brought to the club and we are excited to see him continue in his coaching roles here at SIU.
SIU is rounding off its fall season while heading into winter training and futsal. Brett is ready to dive in to get to work on supplemental tryouts (Nov. 4th), continuing coaches education, sorting winter training schedules, planning for the spring, and getting another season of TOPSoccer started.
