Club Director Todd Kingsbury is in his 16th year, overseeing a period of transition and reinvention that has seen the club rise to new heights. Todd has instilled a set of values and expectations in all of his players that lead them to strive to constantly improve and find success on the field and in life. His first generation of players are now returning to serve the club in a variety of different ways, most notably with 13 former Far Post players currently on the coaching staff. While seeking to develop the best possible soccer players in the state, Todd has also succeeded in helping mold some very impressive young men and women in all respects.
In his role as Club Director, Todd primarily focuses on the following:
Sam is in his 6th year on staff and is in charge of most of the day-to-day operations of the club such as scheduling, indoor league management, website development and upkeep, team registration, curriculum development, and club communication. The club has made major strides in it's organizational flow and speed of response, bringing all registration, scheduling, and administration online under Sam's guidance. He has also overseen the development and launch of our new website.
Janette Hasenecz, Head of Administration
Janette came onboard part-time this past fall in order to help ease the administrative burden being put on our Senior Staff. Her day-to-day duties include player registration and roster management, collections, GotSoccer help, and club advertisement. She also oversees all Team Managers.
Ray has been with the club for 10 years. He rotates through all of our team sessions to keep a close eye on the development of each individual player. He ensures that they are progressing properly, in the right team environment, and are enjoying their soccer experience. Further, he communicates with new players and their families about what Far Post is like and oversees the transition to the club. Ray is also a very valuable resource to our coaches.
Adam joins us for the 2017/18 Season as the Head of College Search for all HS-aged players in the club. Acknowledging that there is a need to provide more to it's oldest players, the club has created this role specifically to provide it's players that want to play in college a resource within the club that they can use and help them develop a plan to get them to where they want to be. In addition to Annual College Nights, he will meet with each of our HS-aged teams at the beginning of the season and be available for individual meetings with players/parents.
We would be NOTHING without our coaches.
Far Post prides itself on having the best coaching staff in the state. With 5 current college coaches, 2 former college coaches, 4 Varsity High School coaches, and 13 college players, and 8 former Far Post players on staff, it's easy to back up that claim.
Far Post has an innovative curriculum modeled after the USSF Player Development Initiatives. The club also places an emphasis on coaching education, with a number of our coaches working on or having completed the USSF Badges and/or NSCAA Diplomas. Our staff regularly meets to discuss the state of the club and its players, as well as detail our approach for the upcoming months.
Soccer and development are both very fluid concepts and our approach must be too. We are constantly looking to innovate and improve the product that we give our players instead of following others or continuing to do the same thing year after year. The player comes first, and we never lose sight of that.
