Steve Weston

Technical Director & Head Coach

Coaching Philosophy:
At all times to keep soccer fun and enjoyable, as well as install good discipline and strong work ethic.

All players must continually work on the technical ability and ball control. Players need to enjoy having the ball.

Without the volunteer club coach the player can not play and can not develop. All coaches need to be an environment where they can learn, grow and be constantly supported by the club and the club’s Head Coach

Over 30 years of coaching experience both in England and Canada. Over 8 years as a professional soccer coach.
