California Odyssey Soccer Club is pleased to announce the return of Ben Lomeli as Youth Director. Coach Lomeli is dedicated to building and identifying talent in the youngest age groups in our club. Building a solid soccer foundation, by implementing age appropriate soccer curriculum, is an essential element of our younger age groups. “What do you want for your children within the sport of soccer? Personally, I want an environment that fosters not only competitive player development and exposure, but also a community that helps cultivate skilled soccer players and outstanding young people,” says Coach Lomeli.
Ben Lomeli has been an integral part of California Odyssey Soccer Club. Coach Lomeli has served our club for the past 16 years, contributing his time and talents as Coach, Club President and most recently as Youth Director. Coach Lomeli believes in the development pathway Odyssey has provided for many players and coaches in the valley through its efforts of discovering new methods, resources and ideas that allow us to create a playing and training environment for every player. “As we embark on our 20th year I am re-energized with the new additions to our coaching staff and leadership. I am especially excited for our older players who are looking towards collegiate soccer, with the addition of Coach Eddie, and all the recruitment resources and knowledge he brings to our club,” says Coach Lomeli.
“The dedication and commitment required from individuals who believe in the process is paramount to the success of any organization. We cannot think of a more dedicated individual then Coach Lomeli, and his continued trust in the process which is critical to the growth and longevity of California Odyssey Soccer Club over the past 20 years.
