Great soccer teams often reflect the style and expertise of their coaches. At SWU, our young athletes have the benefit of incredible mentors who truly care. Our technical directors and coaches are the key to our ongoing success. They provide their services on a largely volunteer basis and commit countless hours to helping our athletes develop as players and as people. Our coaching staff also works hard to stay current with the latest strategies for developing young soccer players.
They continuously upgrade their skills through the National Coaches Certification program (NCCP), Canadian Soccer Association licensing and guest coach seminars. Five of our coaches have licensing at levels of Provincial B or higher. Many of them have decades of coaching and playing experience. More than that, they have a boundless love of the game. Our coaching volunteers are the reason SWU can offer kids a home to play soccer. Each of our coaches started somewhere and at SWU we offer you training and mentorship to kick start your coaching career. Our Technical Director Tomasz Janas welcomes your email to find out more about coaching with SWU.
Tomasz Janas is one of SWU’s truly international talents. A naturally competitive person, he has always strived to be the best he can be. Growing up in Poland, his goal was to become a professional soccer player – and he worked hard to achieve it. As an eager young player, he made the Polish National U16 team. Then he went through the ordeal that no athlete wants to go through…
…as an educator you lead by example not by arrogance.
Mantra: "If you want to be the best, you need to play with the best and against the best." Hobbies: "I read lots of books about athletes and soccer." Favourite soccer team: "Bayern Munich"
