Special thanks to Mario Sanchez, Director of Youth Development with Louisville City FC, for speaking at our “Recruiting 101 Seminar”. We had over 60 in attendance. Mario shared with us a "Step by Step Guide on How to Navigate the Process" of college recruiting from his experience as a 20 year coach in NCAA Division I. Mario was nice enough to share his presentation and allow us to video it as well. This is a fantastic resource for our club and can be found below. Thank you Mario!

Dutch Vigar, our Director of Coaching, is excited to share the new SIU Coaching Curriculum Guide. It was developed for coaches in the club to use as guidance about what skills should be learned at each age level. Coach Vigar wants to give credit to the United Soccer Coaches curriculum guide and New York Red Bull curriculum guide, that were referenced when developing this material.
A scholarship fund was established in memory of Jacob Trulock who played soccer for SIU since he was age 7. He died in a hiking accident in March. Jacob was the captain of the NAHS soccer team, an outstanding student and accepted into the Purdue engineering program. The scholarship was created to help students follow their educational dreams like Jacob.
