August 2019 Coaches and Refs of the Month

Congratulations to Johnny, Tucker, Kyrstin, and our new referees for earning our monthly honors for August 2019!

IMG_6698Head Coach of the Month: Johnny Molina

Johnny is in his fifth year as a coach with Eclipse and 30th year of coaching overall. Through his positive leadership, he has guided the 2006 Boys team through one of their best months ever. The boys had a great month of training sessions where Johnny pushed the boys to improve individually and as a team. They were able to showcase their improvement at the San Ramon Soccerfest tournament where the team went undefeated and captured the title. While a deserved celebration did ensue, Johnny has kept the boys focused on continuing to improve throughout the fall.

Assistant Coach of the Month: Tucker Clark

After playing for Eclipse for the club’s first four seasons, Tucker has kept in close connection with Eclipse. When he moved back into the area this summer, he hopped right in to the coaching staff to give back to the players of the club he grew up in. He has served as an assistant coach with teams across the club from Future Eclipse up to our high school aged teams. The one consistency has been the head coaches regularly providing positive feedback about Tucker’s professionalism and work ethic to always help the players and team succeed.

Coach in Training of the Month: Kyrstin Wilson

In her second year as a player with Eclipse, Kyrstin joined our Coach in Training staff for the first time this season. She immediately made a positive impact helping with our 2010 Girls. Her mix of a calm demeanor and bubbly positive personality has proven to be an excellent source for the girls to grow their passion of the game and feel comfortable and confident in their team environment. She is also a terrific leader who often leads by example by hopping in to play with the girls to demonstrate the skill they are learning.
