RVDL Soccer Academy is delighted to announce the addition of Luke Holder to our coaching team.
Luke’s certifications include the USSF National B and the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) National B Licence. Luke is working towards the USSF National A licence.
Luke brings a great deal of experience at various levels as a player and coach including his current role with Wilfrid Laurier University and K-W United FC. His proven track record includes successfully preparing players for varsity and scholarship opportunities.
At Laurier, Luke will continue as the Assistant Men’s and Women’s Coach. Laurier plays in the OUA West Division with the women’s program, recently named as the fourth best program in the country.
K-W United FC is a semi-professional soccer club with teams in the USL Premier Development League (PDL) for men.
We are excited that Luke, an Elite Athletics coach, will bring his varsity and senior player coaching experience to RVDL, preparing our senior players for the next stages of their soccer pathways.
‘’My short time spent at RVDL has been great. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the players in their established professional environment and look forward to helping RVDL grow stronger’’ Luke commented.
As part of Luke’s role at RVDL, he will be working with Steven Carroll in reviewing and fine tuning the RVDL curriculum. Originally from the UK and having made the move some years ago to Canada, Luke and Steven have worked together in the past through their Bolton Wanderers FC, England and Bolton Wanderers SC, Canada connection. Both Steve and Luke look forward to working together again and are excited about their future with RVDL.
Luke will be working closely with RVDL players in both the Academy and Pre-Academy. He is looking forward to taking on the challenges of his new role with RVDL and being actively involved in the development of your child to reach their full potential.
We hope you will join us in welcoming Luke to the RVDL Soccer Academy.
