Discoveries is proud to announce Coach Dom Wren has been named National Youth Coach of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America at their January 15th, 2010 Awards Banquet in Philadelphia.
Dom is a very valuable member of our coaching staff and we are immensely proud of him! This has been an unbelieveable year for Coach Dom, who has received the SCYSA Coach of the Year, NSCAA Region III Youth Coach of the Year, NSCAA Region South High School Coach of the Year, and now NSCAA National Youth Coach of the Year. Dom will find out if he has been named USYS Region III Coach of the Year in February.
Dom coached our very successful DSC 90 Green to 4 State Cup Championships, a Region III League Championship, 2009 Southern Regional III Tournament Championship and the 2009 USYS U18 Boys National Championship. Dom holds a NSCAA Advanced Regional license.
Dom, who is our Boys Director of Coaching, has been associated with Discoveries since 1998 when as a Winthrop University soccer player he started coaching one of our u11 teams. Dom was recruited by Winthrop from Weymouth, England where he previously played for the Weymouth Football Club (England) and the British Colleges National team. At Winthrop he played 4 years as sweeper and for 2 years was Captain. Dom graduated from Winthrop with a BA in Physical Education in 2002, completed his Masters in 2004 and is currently teaching in Rock Hill. Over the summer he coaches camps at Clemson and Winthrop University.
Dom is also coaching the Boys Varsity Team at Northwestern HS, which in 2006, 2008 and 2009 won the State Championship. In 2009 besides the Northwestern 2009 State Championship, the team was awarded the National High School Championship title by ESPNrise.
We wish Dom all the best this year with his current team DSC 95 Green and his Northwestern HS team.
