FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WEST-MONT UNITED SOCCER ASSOCIATION APPOINTS DIRECTOR
LIMERICK, Pa. — West-Mont United Soccer Association today has announced the addition of our new Zone 1, (U9-12) Boys Director Aron Bassoff within the youth soccer club.
“We are trying to enhance the overall exposure to professional player development within the club. In the past, we have had boys and girls directors, who oversaw the over 500 players in our club. I believe that having directors within the zones for both boys and girls will only enable us as a soccer club to better guide and enhance the development of each and every one of our players,” West-Mont Executive Director Ian Dawson said.
“What we have now in place is more accessibility for our players to get a top-notch professional support mechanism on a daily basis. We are truly excited to be adding such quality and experience into the club"
Bassoff holds his United States Soccer Federation (USSF) ‘A’ License, as well as his United Soccer Coaches (formerly, National Soccer Coaches Association of America) Premier Diploma and Coerver Course. He holds an astonishing record of 172-126-14 of intercollegiate games, with stops at Division II Shorter University and Davis & Elkin’s College.
“We are thrilled to welcome Aron to the West-Mont United family,” said Dawson. “As one of the most accomplished coaches in the game, he’s proven he can help players reach their peak and inspire his teams to the next level. He is widely respected by players and coaches in Pennsylvania, and he has the work ethic and winning mentality to guide the players into their next era of success."
Attached a statement from Aron Bassoff ‘I will be responsible for oversight of the boy’s teams and coaches in the u9 to u12 age groups as well as being the 07s Girls Premier Coach and 07s Boys Premier Blue.
In collaboration with Matt Rice who is the Zone 1 Director for the girls’ team, we want to produce technically proficient players. U9 players are just experiencing playing in a competitive environment for the first time so we want to make sure they can pass, receive, dribble and shoot very well. The u12 to u13 is a key turning point because they go to a bigger field, play 11v11 and move from a size 4 to 5 ball. We want to make sure players are technically sound and have learned some tactics they can apply as we begin to work in bigger numbers at u13.
Bassoff duties begin immediately. Which will be essential to the success of the club and provide a great start to the new year.
