Welcome Stephen Nichols from St. Mary's College Joining SJSC Coaching Staff

Meet Stephen at our Pre-Tryout Clinic Tonight! Stephen will be attending tonight’s clinic at Mather Sports Complex from 6-7:30pm, as well as all of this weekend’s tryouts. He will move to Sacramento and begin his ECNL Staff and U13 Boys Coaching duties at the start of the new U13 season on March 14, 2016.

San Juan SC is excited to announce the hiring Stephen Nichols to our ECNL Staff, and as the Head Coach of our U13 (’04) Boys Blue team. Nichols comes to San Juan from St. Mary’s College, where he has been serving as an Assistant Coach. At Saint Mary’s, Nichols has been assisting with on-field and individual training, administrative duties and camp operations. Nichols has Northern California Club Coaching experience as well, most recently having coached for Mountain View Los Altos (MVLA) and as Head High School Coach for Los Altos High School and San Ramon Valley High School. 

San Juan is thrilled to have Stephen join our Staff. He will be a great asset to our ECNL Program with his high coaching pedigree, deep knowledge of the college game and recruiting process, and passion for developing players for the next level. Stephen’s expertise in coaching both boys and girls will also serve our entire club and membership very well.

Nichols also brings a wealth of playing experience, having played at Cal State East Bay and Colorado State Pueblo. He is a 2011 graduate of Cal State East Bay with a degree in Kinesiology and holds a USSF National ‘B’ Coaching License.
