VANCOUVER, BC – Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced on Tuesday a partnership with the Ottawa Gloucester Hornets to provide technical services to the club.
These services will be overseen by Whitecaps FC staff coach Joel Moody, who will manage all technical programs and coach development. Moody has been coaching at the academy level in England for the past six years and is in the process of completing his UEFA A License. Prior to joining Whitecaps FC, Moody had the opportunity to grow in some of the most successful academies in Europe. This includes positions at Southampton FC, Swansea City AFC, and most recently with Coventry City FC.
Moody, as part of the partnership with Whitecaps FC, will work to develop age appropriate technical programs that will benefit all Hornet players and coaches. Program details will be determined in the near future with an expected launch in spring of 2017.
