Coach Profile:

Steve joined CDO in 2003 after moving to the area specifically to join the club training/coaching staff, having previous youth coaching experience with Newcastle United of the English Premier League, Major League Soccer Camps and as a National Youth Development Officer and Acting Technical Director for the British Virgin Islands FA.

Since moving to Arizona he has been involved in the Arizona Olympic Development Program, acted as the State Technical Coordinator for the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) as well as running sessions for the Arizona Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) "Kickin it after school" community outreach soccer program.

Steve graduated in 2009 as one of only eleven coaches nationwide chosen for the inaugural NSCAA Master Coach Diploma, an 18 month long coaching course and the pinnacle of the NSCAA coach education program. Steve is also a regular visitor to coach education seminars with the NSCAA, as well as participating in trips to MLS teams, women's teams and professional clubs overseas as part of a lifelong commitment to ongoing coach development. His claim to fame is somewhat unique - he guested as a soccer commentator on Caribbean television for the World Cup qualifier between Jamaica and El Salvador in 2000!

The CDO 95G Gold team Steve coached from 2008-13 won the State President's Cup for a third successive time in their last year of club competition, representing Arizona in the Region IV Championships in Utah and Colorado respectively in 2011 & 2012, in addition to being a trainer for the CDO 97G Gold team that won the competition in 2012 and also coached the CDO 98G Gold team that won in 2014, representing Arizona against teams from Northern California, Idaho and Colorado at the Region IV Tournament.

In March 2015, Steve was voted in as the Director of Coaching for Pima County Junior Soccer League, to oversee coach education, licensing and training events for all clubs and coaches in Pima County.
