HPFC Welcomes New Director of Coaching

Good afternoon Highline Premier FC Families,

It is with great pleasure that I get introduce our new HPFC Director of Coaching, Ozzy Erkut.




Ozzy's journey has come full-circle with this new role, as he had coached at Highline Premier FC nearly 10 years ago. Since then, he has immersed himself in the greater Seattle area's local youth and college soccer culture, with coaching at Seattle United, Edmonds College, and most recently at Eastside FC. In addition to his many coaching roles, Ozzy has extensive experience running skills camps and clinics, most notably the Arsenal FC Soccer Schools in Hawaii for many years. The past 10 years of working in local youth soccer have enabled Ozzy to build a vast network of fellow youth soccer coaches and administrators and past players and families.  


Ozzy has an approachable and friendly nature coupled with a soccer IQ steeped in coaching experience and from years of professional soccer for Bursaspor FC in his home country of Turkey. He is what you might call a true "student of the game." He possesses a full flight of United Soccer Coaches diplomas, including a USSF C License, FA-UEFA B license, and the FA International Coaching license. He plans to continue his pursuit of advanced licensure.


For HPFC, Ozzy embodies the values that have kept this Club going for 25 years, the devotion to the game of soccer as a vehicle for providing opportunity, growth, community, and enjoyment for our members. I am very humbled by his enthusiasm to take on this critical job and am excited for all of you to meet him. 


Today is Ozzy's first day on the job. So if you see him on the pitch, please say hello and welcome him to the team!

 

Regards,

Sue Bialous, President
