Norma is in her third year coaching with Eclipse and is coaching the U12 Lunar Girls and U13 Lunar Girls teams. She is known for the close personal connection she has with her players and the blend of passion for the game and fun she brings to practices and games. She had a lot to celebrate this month as both of her teams finished in first place at the Sunnyvale Alliance Medina Fall Classic tournament in Morgan Hill.

Jenn is in her first year coaching for Eclipse. She began the year as a co-coach of the U11 Nova Girls team but has expanded her coaching to other areas of the club as well. Jenn has become one of our most reliable assistant coaches, particularly in her work with our Future Eclipse and U9/U10 programs this fall.

 

Referee of the Month: Mark Weyland

Mark is one of the club’s most experienced and professional referees. He regularly takes on the club’s highest level matches, including the center position for the U18 Girls game against the Saint Mary’s College women’s club team. One of Mark’s strengths that is most valuable to the club is his ability to mentor the assistant referees he is working with.
