Please help us congratulate Erin in her new role.

Director of Coaching Zeca Neto had the following to say: “As a club, we are committed to celebrating the successes of our players and staff when they move on to the next step in their careers. Erin has been an integral part of our staff for the past 5 years and has helped push the club in a very positive direction in the ECNL.”

Erin Sharpe passed on a message to everyone: “I would like to thank all of the players, families, staff and board members that I have had the opportunity to work with over the years, and who have impacted my life in immeasurable ways. I appreciate the support that San Juan has provided me in this new opportunity and am very excited to follow future successes of this exceptional club.”

With this announcement, we are very excited to announce that Bernardo Silva will take over the ECNL Director Role effectively immediately.

“I am humbled and very excited about the opportunity to lead the San Juan Soccer Club elite girls’ program. The ECNL platform provides a proven pathway that prepares players for the next level whether it’s college, the national team, or professionally. Our effort will be relentless in pursuit of a national championship environment across our whole program. We are committed to developing great people first, and secondly, great soccer players that will continue to honor the San Juan SC legacy through their daily actions. I am excited about the future of our club and grateful to be a part of it!”, Bernardo Silva, New SJSC ECNL Director
