Shoreline’s Women’s Soccer coach Matt Dorman has been selected by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) to participate in their “30 Under 30” program for up-and-coming coaches for the 2015-16 season. Dorman, who has been at Shoreline since December of 2014, was selected out of a pool of over 500 applicants for this honor.
The “30 Under 30” program is a year-long education and mentorship opportunity created to support coaches and foster their growth at a crucial point in their chosen career path. Participants gain exposure to the NSCAA membership, and the opportunity to take advantage of NSCAA educational offerings.
“It’s an honor to be chosen for this program because it’s aimed at young, progressive coaches,” said Dorman, “and that describes and highlights the very nature of our athletics program at Shoreline. We have a philosophy of bringing positive new ideas and training programs to our athletics, and our coaches are always looking for ways to infuse the program with energy.”
The 30 Under 30 program is geared toward coaches at every level of the game, from coaches of youth through professionals. Dorman has experience at club, high school and Olympic development program levels.
In 2014, Dorman was named by the NSCAA as NW Regional High School Coach of the Year.
