BOYS COACHING SLATE -- 2014-15 Season
Boca United Club Director Eric Eichmann has announced his BOYS slate of coaches for the 2014-15 Program year (Note: The GIRLS slate of coaches was announced two weeks ago).
The delay in announcing the BOYS slate of coaches was due in part to allow the club to finalize the hiring of current New York Red Bull Academy coach Daniel Gutierrez (coach “Guti”) which was accomplished this week. Coach “Guti”, who holds a USSF “B” coaching license, will be overseeing and working with Boca United’s younger boys players (age groups U8/9 through U12) to help further establish the foundation of our club playing philosophy with those players. Coach “Guti” will also work with our U14 Boys Academy and U17 Boys age groups.
In addition to coach “Guti” the club is pleased to announce that coach Lonny Unger has joined the coaching staff. Coach Unger holds a USSF “C” license and brings a wealth of youth and college soccer coaching experience to Boca United having been the President and Assistant Director of Coaching for FC Westchester a USSF Development Academy club located in New York and coaching at several Division I and Division 3 college programs (Manhattan College, Iona College and Purchase College) over the last 13 years.
"The addition of these new staff coaches along with the reassigning of current top BOYS staff coaches such as Clitch DeGouveia and Jason Sardis to our U15 and U16 Boys age groups allows Boca United to offer the best boys coaching staff in the area” said Eichmann.
The club will look to build on a great 2013-14 season which saw FIVE Boca United players selected for US National Youth team camps, sending a club record 4 teams to FYSA State Cup Final Four, 2 Florida Premier League champions, and having a record number of our players move on to play soccer at various colleges this fall.
