Coaching Assignments


Oldham Soccer Club Coaching Staff

  2. For the 2016-2017 season, Oldham Soccer Club will be moving to a system that allows pools of coaches to work with teams. The pools of coaches will work in specific age categories; U7-U10, U11-U12, U13-U14 & U15-U18. Here are the coaching assignments for the Fall of 2016 (click on them to find out more information):

    U7-U10 - Luis Pacheco, Tom Gillette, Fredy Cortes, George Moran, Charles Cooper, Mike Stephanchick

    U11-U12 - Luis Pacheco, Tom Gillette, Corey Johnson, Justin Mills, Gabe Wenger, Chris Skelton

    U13-U14 - Simon Bird, Mark Robson, Michael Dinga, Claudiu Moraru, Rock Thompson, Ricardo Aguilar, Jason Kellams

    There are several reasons why we are moving to coaching pools, as against assigning a coach with a team for the year:

    1) To allow a more 'player development' approach
  3. 2) Help assist our new training schedule allowing Thoroughbreds teams to train four times per week
  4. 3) To allow our players to work with a variety of coaches who all specialize in that age range
  5. 4) Allow our coaches to see and work with different players
  6. 5) Improve our coaches ability to work within a 'coaching team'
  7. 6) To allow the club to create a more uniform approach where all coaches are meeting regularly and working together on our philosophy
