 MEET SOME OF OUR COACHES

COACH DREW

 

Drew Williams, Director of Coaching, has been playing several sports since he was a kid growing up in northern New Jersey, including soccer which he still plays today in a few adult leagues.  He began coaching soccer in the area when his sons entered the REC soccer program.  Drew was fortunate enough to join the BSC and take the first U9 players all the way up through the program.  Now the Director of Coaching for BSC and the head coach for the Barrington Middle School varsity girls’ team, Coach Drew enjoys being a part of Barrington’s young soccer players’ development as they grow and progress over several years.  He holds NHSA certificates for the 8-10 and 10-12 Youth Coaching Courses, as well as the USSF E License.  Drew’s favorite aspect of coaching soccer is being able to help his young players foster the creativity that makes this sport such a beautiful game.

 

 

 

 

 

COACH ROB

 

Rob Lemos has coached youth soccer at all levels for more than 8 years and is the founder of the Barrington Soccer Club. He played soccer during both middle school and high school and began coaching for the Barrington Rec's summer soccer program in 2007. After the 2009 fall season, he started organizing parents and coaches to create the Barrington Soccer Club, which fielded 44 players on four teams for its inaugural 2010 Fall season. For the Barrington Soccer Club's first three years, Rob coached the BSC Storm U12 team. The 2012 U12 Storm team won the NH Seacoast Youth Soccer League championship for Division 2. Rob continues to coach young kids to this day, running a U9 team for both the BSC Fall Travel Soccer and Winter Futsal seasons. He currently is certified by the NH Soccer Association to coach up to the U12 level.

 

COACH DAN

Dan Sheehan started to play in 5th grade at the newly formed South Soccer League in Manchester NH; first team was Bernard Tire with Coach Marvin.  He has been playing soccer for 37 years and in his younger years he played Center Halfback and now often plays Sweeper.  He has coached a total of 10 years, his first 2 years at Trinity High School in Manchester.  He loves the game mostly because of the physical and intelligent challenges that soccer commands.  He now plays on an indoor soccer team and enjoy playing and kicking the ball around with his kids.  He is licensed from the New Hampsire Soccer Association.  His favorite thing about coaching is creating an environment through soccer that each kid understands they can improve and gain confidence that will not only help them with soccer but life.

 

COACH MANNY

 

Manny MacMillan's love for the game came as a player first, and then as a coach.  He played every field position over the course of high school at The Derryfield School before switching to goalkeeper his senior year, going on to play for the UNH Wildcats.  Manny still loves playing the game, and is an active member of men's indoor and outdoor leagues in NH and MA.  He thoroughly enjoys sharing what he has learned about the game with the young players who choose Barrington Soccer Club, and finds great satisfaction in seeing the kids begin to enjoy the game more and more as they learn and grow as players.  Manny holds Level E and Level F Soccer Coaching Licenses from New Hampshire Soccer Association (NHSA), and Level 1 Goalkeeper Diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).  

 

 

COACH KEVIN

 

Kevin Zent has had a love of soccer for many years, and has coached at various levels for the last six, receiving my NH coaching license last year.  Soccer has always been a huge part of his family life - playing in the yard with his four kids (he says almost five can walk now!) or watching and following his family's favorite team, FC Barcelona and their favorite players Messi and Dani Alves.  He coaches primarily for the love of encouraging and supporting young players, and for the bonus of trying to stay as active as his kids.  He likes to work on fundamentals in practice, working toward the goal of players making their own good decisions in games as they continue to learn the joy and art of soccer.

 

 

ASSISTANT COACHING

Barrington Soccer Club is always in need of Assistant Coaching help.  You do not need to have previous soccer experience in order to help our Head Coaches with their teams or volunteer your time to help your child's team.  Attendance at practices and games is preferred as well as the ability to help the coaches organize the kids and keep practices moving.  Knowledge of the game is always preferred, but we are most interested in positive people who want to lend a hand and help our coaches who are all volunteers!  If you have interest in Assistant Coaching please contact Drew Williams or Scott Collins in the weeks leading up to Fall Try-outs in June or before the start of the Fall Season.  Approaching your child's Head Coach on opening day or the first day of practice for fall is okay too, but the sooner the better is appreciated.
