Several years ago NSSA began re-building our competitive program at the younger age levels by laying a critical development foundation for our club.
This year we will increase our attention to the U13+ age levels as Rick addresses our coaching and player development needs for these upper age groups. Rick will partner with Katelynn and Jacob Fast, who will continue DOC responsibilities for our younger groups (U5 – U12), to fully serve all player needs. This is a significant step in our journey toward providing the highest quality of player development in our competitive program.
Rick brings an impressive background and depth of experience to this role. Previously he was with the Maplebrook Soccer Club where he was instrumental in securing a winter training facility and designing their innovative approach to player development. This set a powerful precedent in Minnesota youth soccer which many other clubs now emulate. Over the past two years, Rick has provided a critical element in the organization and programs at Centennial Soccer Club as Executive Director. Rick also serves on the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) Development Committee. He is highly regarded in our state’s youth soccer community and is, unabashedly, a “soccer head.” Rick also was a college professor for eight years teaching psychology and management and has an impressive coaching resume including both boys and girls high school soccer and competitive teams from U9 through U18.
Rick will work collaboratively with Katelynn and Jacob Fast to serve and support the DOC role across all age levels. The Fasts will also continue leading additional club development programs. NSSA also ensures the technical development for our younger players and teams through Phil Peacock, our U11-12 Technical Director and Julian Guilbeault, U9-U10 Technical Director.
Our momentum continues to build and we are very excited about reaching this Club milestone. Please help us welcome Rick to his new role!
