The Spokane Sounders are excited to announce the slate of coaches for the 2018-19 girls teams. The club also unveiled the upcoming tournament and event participation list for all teams.
Among the excellent coaches back to guide the young ladies this year will be Kevin Moon, Dan Philp, Mike Oliver, Simon Thompson, Jason Bellefeuille and Robyn O'Connor - a stable of coaches that have extensive experience with the club. Taking on the leadership of some of the younger squads are Aaron Blackmer, Kevin Houston, Kasey Rubosky as well as newcomers Josh Patino, Lexi Brown, Matt Folsom and Torrey Finn.
"A lot of the credit for the club's continued success as one of the top girls' programs in the state is due to the outstanding quality within our coaching staff," said Technical Director Abbas Faridnia. "The leadership among our staff will without a doubt keep that bar high through the upcoming year. We have NCAA Division I coaches, former collegiate coaches and players from all levels, and coaches that continue to further their education with USSF National A, B and C licenses. We are ecstatic for what the 2018-2019 season has for the girls players in our community."
