DCS Announces U13 Intake Coaches
For the 2005-born Metro Selects League Season
Starting September 2017
Delta Coastal Selects is delighted to announce the appointment of Ian McCabe as head coach of the 2017 Delta Coastal Selects U13 Girls Intake team, and Roberto Ama as head coach of the U13 Boys Intake team. Both coaches will immediately begin working in collaboration with the BCSPL Coaches to conduct a thorough 5 month scouting process ahead of the formal evaluations in April 2017. The substantial scouting process will allow Ian and Roberto the opportunity to engage in discussions with partner club Technical Directors, BCSPL Intake Coaches, current U12 Club Coaches, game day scouting, and other potential scouting platforms.
Ian holds a BCSA Provincial B coaching license and has 17 years coaching experience at various levels of the game. Ian is currently the head coach of the South Delta United U12 girls team and coaches in the South Delta United Club Academy. Additionally, Ian has also spent several years coaching in the Richmond United Adult program.
Delta Coastal Selects is thrilled to have brought a coach of Ian’s caliber and experience to the program. He has earned an excellent reputation within the community for the positive coaching environment he creates for young developing players. His coaching experience from grassroots to adult programs levels speaks for itself, and he will be a huge asset in assisting in the development of this intake group. We are certain that those fortunate enough to be selected will feel extremely privileged work with Ian in what will be a fantastic developmental environment.
Roberto Ama also holds a BCSA Provincial B coaching license, and has spent the past 8 years coaching both genders at Development and BCSPL levels. Roberto currently performs various roles at Coastal FC as the head coach of the U12 Boys Development team, assistant coach of the U16 BCSPL team, and he is also a staff member in the Coastal FC Club Academy.
Delta Coastal Selects is extremely happy to have secured the services of one of the most popular youth coaches in the local soccer community. Roberto’s involvement with Delta Coastal Selects ensures the delivery of an excellent developmental environment for young aspiring players. His coaching experience working in high performance programs such as the BCSPL, and his ability to connect with young players and pass on his coaching knowledge is a great asset. The club is delighted for those that will be selected as they will benefit greatly from Roberto’s knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for the game.
Robbie Tice, Technical Lead of Delta Coastal Selects said, “We are delighted to have identified two excellent coaches who are held in such high regard within the local soccer community. Their appointment supports our goal of ensuring that our players are given the best possible opportunity to succeed in achieving their goals in the sport.
