Marian University’s Craig Peltonen has been named Fond du Lac Soccer Association’s first Director of Coaching. This part-time position will assist in the continued growth of the FDLSA’s recreational and select programs. Two key focal points in 2016 will be the development of an Academy program, targeted to 7-10 year olds in both the spring and fall as well as leading the coaching development within the Fond du Lac Soccer Association coaching ranks.
Peltonen brings a wealth of knowledge to Fond du Lac Soccer and the Phoenix select programs. He has guided the Marian University men’s soccer program for over 27 years (and will continue to do so) and started the women’s program at Marian in 1990.
He’s worked with some of the top clubs in Wisconsin including the Milwaukee Kickers, Elm Grove Soccer Club, and most recently the Bavarian Soccer Club. He’s been an ODP (Olympic Development Program) staff coach on both the state and regional level. He’s also been part of the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association teaching staff for 15 years. This is the branch of the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) that provides coaching licensure around the state. Peltonen himself holds a US Soccer “A” license.
Any questions can be directed to either Bob Niederdorfer, the Fond du Lac Phoenix Select Director or myself.
