A Message from our DOC,
Garreth Barker

“I’m very happy that a number of our coaches have been accepted to the next level of US Soccer Coaching Qualifications” announced our DOC, Garreth Barker.


Rob Harrison, James Milne, and James Curry have been accepted by US Soccer, while Liam Brader is awaiting confirmation of a place on the USS A licence. Justine Sauder is awaiting acceptance on the USS B license, and Glen Gamble has gained a place and is awaiting course dates on the USS B licence. These courses are not only a barometer of self education but are pivotal in exposing our coaches to the next level of thinking as we look to establish the best technical department in the southern state.

This external coach education is part of the 5-Star Coaching Model (internal coaching management system) which is unique to this club. This will also be supplemented by the delivery of LFC specific training modules that will further enhance the performance of our coaches.


“I am excited to deliver the LFC Coach Education Program, and feel this will be beneficial in the long term development of our coaches and players alike” Barker said, and “I’m looking forward to more coaches being accepted to the next level of their professional coaching qualifications.

LFCIA SoCal is extremely proud of these coaches for being a great example for our players by demonstrating our Core Value of “Ambition; Pursuing ever-higher goals with your feet on the ground.  Congratulations and good luck Coaches!
