Sammy Sylvester Jr

Leeds, UK

I am interested in becoming a coach with Somerton because I am looking to gain experience and complete my FA Level 2 badge. I have just completed my senior year at Richmond International Academic & Soccer Academy (RIASA) in Leeds, England. I grew up in Tennessee playing soccer since I was 3 years old. I played on the showcase team for Tennessee Soccer Club and for the summers of 2018 and 2019 I have coached summer camps through TSC as well as Lipscomb University. My experience in the UK has allowed me to see the European side of football. For the past 3 years I have played for RIASA in the West Lancashire League, winning the league in the 2017/18 season. During this time, I have been dedicated to learning about the business, coaching, and recruiting side of sports with a focus on football. Some of the classes that I have taken include: Sports Events Planning & Promotion, Sports Management, Exercise & Nutrition, and many fundamental business and marketing classes. In addition, I’m an English Football Association Level 1 certified coach and I’m currently completing my Level 2 certification. During my studies, I coached a group of U7 boys at Horsforth JFC every weekend. I have also taken player agent courses to expand my knowledge on different aspects of the game. Through football I have gained skills in teamwork, dedication, strong work ethic, game strategy & tactics, and character building. A position with Somerton will help me to continue to develop these skills along with many others. I believe with my qualifications and background I will be a good asset to Somerton while I gain experience on a professional level . I have attached a copy of my resume and I look forward to hearing from you.
