The Development Academy retained the coaches involved from last year and we believe they provide a great mix of personality and knowledge that will continue to propel our Development Academy teams forward.  It is important for our players to connect with every coach in the program and all staff involved recognize the importance of these connections and what they mean to our players.

Returning for the 2020/21 season are also Joe Paulsen, Staff Coach; Jenny Jeffers, Staff Coach and Technical Specialist; Dan Soutar, Staff Coach; Eddie Hertsenberg, Staff Coach and Joe Waggoner, Girls DA Goalkeeper Coach.

“We are really excited about the staff we have assembled in the Development Academy and Development Players League this year.  We take great pride in our staff as they create a positive, competitive, and safe environment for kids to grow.  Our elite platform structure involves head coaches, assistant coaches, staff coaches, technical coaches, and a performance staff that we believe provide an unparalleled experience for our players.  With all of the staff involved in every team, alongside each head coach, we feel we provide a unique development pathway.  The staff brings years of experience, knowledge, and leadership.  As we ask our players and teams to work together, our staff works together in everything we do and their support for the program is unwavering” Said Tiffany Roberts, Utah Royal FC Arizona Girls Development Academy Director.
