To all Port Moody Soccer Club Members,
The Port Moody Soccer Club is very pleased to introduce the new Head of Soccer Operations, Kevin Harmse! Kevin will be leading our technical team in an operational role, overseeing our technical staff and solidifying our Club’s overall structure. He will ensure that not only all of our players are supported but our volunteer coaches as well.
The PMSC Board of Directors (BoD) has chosen to focus our staff in an effort to better meet the needs of our members. Kevin was hired to lead the new technical leadership group. Johnny Sulentic will now focus his attention on the U13-18 boy’s program and will continue to run the PMSC Academy programs on Monday and Friday nights. Brittany Baxter will continue to focus her efforts on the girl’s U8-U18 program. We are in the process of hiring another new role that will be responsible for our grassroots program made up of the Kickstart and boys U8-12 programs.
Kevin’s appointment represents a positive step forward in the management of our club’s technical program. His role as Head of Soccer Operations puts him in oversight of our staff coaches, Boy’s Head Coach (Johnny Sulentic) and Girl’s Head Coach (Brittany Baxter). This addition will aid our club in reaching the next level of professionalism with his experience as a former player as well as his administrative experience with the SFU Men’s Soccer program.
The PMSC Board of Directors believes that Kevin’s experience, his passion for community sport at all levels and dedication are a perfect match for our club and we are very excited to have Kevin on our team.
Please join me in welcoming Kevin and making him feel at home. He can be contacted by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
