CUP is in its second year as a member of the US Development Academy, the developmental environment and competition in the US designed for the premier soccer player. CUP was awarded the DA club entry into the U12, U13, U14 age groups for the 2017/18 season and was subsequently awarded the U15 age group to begin this season (2018/19). We do expect to add teams (U16/U17/U19) in future seasons. Due to a personnel change, we are actively pursuing a motivated coach that has a strong connection with the young elite boys’ soccer player, and is an effective teacher of the game who inspires, motivates, and can demonstrate technique at a high level. We are seeking motivated, passionate, skillful people who can think, create and work on a team. We are specifically targeting a coach that excels in the U13-U17 ages at the elite level to be a head coach of 1 team (U13+) within the DA, as well as be a support staff coach within another DA age group (all to be determined upon the strengths and desires of the candidate). There may also be on-field roles within our non-DA programming but only in the absence of conflicts with the primary DA roles. CUP offers a casual work environment, an inclusive culture and an atmosphere for professional development.
