Each year, LMSC honors two travel team coaches and one intramural coach for outstanding contributions to the club as well as overall success in adhering to the club philosophy of "providing each child with a fun filled experience in a soccer environment."
Our 2008 Girls Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award
goes to Rachel Gallegos. Rachel is the head coach for the Under 10B LMSC Crush, and assistant coach for the Under 14B Strikers. Rachel generates a lot of enthusiasm in her players and enables them to develop a strong passion for the game of soccer. As a youth player, she was in the California North Olympic Development Program (ODP). She later played four years at Division One Clemson University, making two final 8 NCAA playoff appearances while at Clemson. LMSC is very fortunate to have a person like Rachel in the club and are proud to name her as our Girls Travel Team Coach Of The Year.
Our 2008 Boys Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award
goes to Ted Domers, head coach for the Under 10B LMSC Shake N Bake team and assistant coach for the Under 9A LMSC Denali. Under Tedís leadership, both travel teams that he is involved with have had excellent seasons and the players have made much progress. Ted was first involved with the LMSC program as a five year old in the Atoms Division. He played for many years on the LMSC Lunatics, the 1994 Under 11 State Champions, where he scored a goal in the state championship game. Ted later played for Goucher College. After graduating, Ted returned to LMSC and has been a tremendous asset to the club, helping with the Summer Travel Team Program and many other aspects of the club. We are proud to have a former LMSC player win our Boys Travel Team Coach Of The Year.
Our 2008 Intramural Coach Of The Year Award goes to Michael Potter who coached two intramural teams this fall as well as a travel team. Michael was head coach for the Coyotes in the Intermediates Division (8 year old boys) as well as the Silverstars in the Electrons Division (9 and 10 year old girls). He was also head coach for the LMSC Spirit travel team who won the Under 13 Division 4 PAGS League Championship. Michael put in a lot of time this fall as a coach and he made it very productive time, helping ensure that a large number of players had a fun filled fall season. Congratulations to Michael on being named winner of the 2008 Intramural Coach Of The Year Award.
