Change of Technical Director - Girls Program

After serving our club for the past several years as Technical Director of the girls' program, Jorge Molina has made the decision to accept a transfer to the Vancouver area with his family. The club will miss Jorge’s enthusiasm and the energy he brought to the girls' program and wishes him the very best of success on the west coast.

Southwest United Sports Club is very pleased to announce that Tomasz Janas has accepted the role of Technical Director, SWU Girls. Tomasz brings to our club a wealth of amateur and professional experience as a coach and player. He has a passion for the beautiful game and a strong desire to teach and work with our young players. Tomasz has a strong affiliation with the club and wants to establish a vision and direction that will continue the work of Jorge Molina, and enhance what the club is doing for our teams. Passion, desire and commitment are key to this vision and Tomasz looks forward to working closely with our players and coaches.
