DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMS
Jared will work to enhance the quality of the club's intramural, pre-travel, and travel programs. Jared recently moved back to Rye and will bring a passion for Rye Soccer and attention to detail to this work. Jared's coaching resume includes leading the Rye HS Boys' varsity team to its best season in 35 years this past fall, four years of recent Division I assistant coaching experience at Harvard and Yale, and a proven commitment as an educator and mentor to students in Rye, the Bronx, the Harvard and Yale campuses, and communities around the world.
DIRECTOR OF PLAYER DEVELOPMENT AND PARENT COACHING
Rich will maintain an overarching focus on the well being of the club's players--from the beginning intramural player to the highest level travel players. In addition, Rich will mentor volunteer parent coaches and managers to ensure that parents feel supported in--and prepared for--their roles. Rich is a lifelong resident of Rye and highly decorated coach. In addition to leading the Rye HS Girls' varsity team to countless championship matches (including two appearances in NY State Finals), Rich has coached dozens of high school all-Americans, college all-Americans, and professional players. His compassion, kindness, and experience as a parent and coach in Rye will prove to be an invaluable resource for our players and parents.
