Highline Premier Welcomes New Director of Coaching


Greetings, HPFC Families,

We have some exciting news to share.

After many months of careful, deliberate planning, and a rather extensive search, I am pleased to introduce Ethan Tait as our next Director of Coaching, effective January 1, 2021.

Ethan comes to us from Bainbridge Island FC where, as the Assistant Director of Coaching, he oversaw various aspects of this club. From organizing tournaments, managing fields, running camps and clinics, all while coaching to a wide range of skills, his approachable and collaborative leadership style proved effective and well-received. Ethan possesses a full flight of United Soccer Coaches (USC) diplomas and certifications, a USSF "D" license with more on the way, a Masters in Sports Administration from Northwestern, is bilingual (Spanish & English), played college soccer at Willamette University, the list goes on. Beyond his obvious soccer leadership qualifications, HPFC Leadership found him to be a team player with fresh ideas and a strong work ethic. We look forward to having Ethan join the HPFC family next year. Welcome, Ethan!

Dee Abasute will step down as Interim Director of Coaching, effective December 31, 2020. I cannot express the gratitude she deserves for valiantly filling this important role during the most difficult of times. Her 6-month tenure as DOC was nothing like any of us expected, with much of her effort put into addressing COVID-related issues, all while continuing to lead and grow our coaching staff. Dee will continue to coach in our Development Program, and will be a key advisor to the Coaching Leadership group. Thank you, Dee, for your poise, your organization, and your solid leadership.

While it may seem like a strange time for such deep changes, I want to assure you that this is the culmination of a lengthy but carefully planned effort completed exactly on schedule. HPFC Leadership is committed to steadily growing and improving our program to better fit the wants and needs of our community. Your feedback is desired, your support appreciated, and your satisfaction with the Club is always foremost in our minds.

Thanks for being a part of this team. Happy Holidays to you and yours.

Regards,
Sue Bialous
