Three San Francisco Elite Academy have earned advanced licenses so far this year, a fourth coach is close to completing his work, and a fifth coach was just accepted to a highly selective course for this fall.
This past week, SFEA head coach Bobby Quinlan (2002 Boys and 2007 Boys DA) earned the prestigious National "A" Youth License and Barry McCabe (Lead Coach for Athletic Development & Injury Prevention) earned his National "B" License. Both coaches competed months of work with repeated classroom and field visits, as well as a long mentorship with a US Soccer coaching educator.
Earlier this year, Chris Flanagan (2003 Boys and 2009 Boys) completed his National "B" License as well, meaning SFEA now has six USSF A licensed coaches and 5 USSF B licensed coaches on staff. Head coach Mauricio Diaz DeLeon (2001 Boys and 2008 Boys) is nearing completion of his National "B" License and Abigail Kalschuer (2007 Girls) just learned she has been selected to a National B Course for the fall of 2018.
At the San Francisco Elite Academy we are proud of our staff and the professionalism for which they approach their roles as coaches. Congratulations to these coaches on this significant achievement.
