About

coach troyIntroduction

West Coast Soccer Club was founded in January, 2011, by Troy Dayak.  Coach Dayak serves as the President and Director of Coaches for the club.   The club was established for the specific purpose of developing a highly competitive youth soccer program in the Livermore & surrounding area.  One of the club’s main goals is to provide soccer programs and opportunities for players and staff at a local, regional, and national level. The club is committed to developing players to their maximum potential and to help prepare and educate them for the possibility of receiving college scholarships based on their playing ability and academic achievements.

Club Philosophy

The club will develop the individual player in the four pillars of the game:

  1. Technical:  A player’s individual technique on the ball and how it is applied to the demands of the game will be our focus.
  2. Tactical:  Each player will be evaluated on how they carry out their individual and team tactics during the course of the game.  More specifically how they adapt and adjust to the demands of the game.
  3. Physical:  Each player will be evaluated by their speed/agility, strength/power, recovery and overall game fitness.
  4. Psychological:  Each player will be observed on their soccer attitude on and off the field, i.e., preparation, motivation, emotions, willingness to play and try different positions.

West Coast Soccer is looking for players that possess a combination of these components and more importantly how they apply these components to the demands of the game.
