North Suburban Soccer is excited to introduce Joe Voeller as our new director of coaching (DOC). Joe will collaborate with Katelynn Fast and will assume oversight of coaching education, player development, curriculum and player placement for the club. Katelynn will move into a new role as Youth Director, primarily focusing her efforts on continuing to grow and strengthen our Junior Academy, Competitive Prep and U9-12 teams. Joe’s first day with the club will be June 1.
“NSSA has experienced tremendous growth over the last two years, particularly in our
young age groups,” says Mike Meloch, club president. “Having both Joe and Katelynn on the team ensures we have the leadership needed to continue the momentum and provide leadership at all ages.”
Katelynn, her husband Jacob, and Joe have prior experience working together both at the club and High School level. The Fasts were integral to bringing Joe on board with the club and are looking forward to working together. Congrats to Joe and Katelynn on their new roles!
