The RYSC is proud to announce the annual Recreational Coach of the Year...
Coach Joe Maldonado!
The year 2020 would have been Joe's 18th season of coaching soccer for RYSC. He recently was quoted as saying: "I really can’t explain how much I miss coaching. This year I would’ve coached (4) soccer teams and our oldest team would’ve had Kaden and Cole on the same team! (two of his sons)
One of Joe's famous lines is: “Ain’t Life Wonderful!” and that statement truly reflects how Joe lives his life and coaches the game... to the fullest.
Joe, this award is in appreciation of your Commitment and Devotion to the Principles and Ideals of Our Club and the Exemplary Leadership and Selfless Acts of Time and Dedication for the Youth of Our Community.
Job well done, Coach Joe! See ya next season!

Coach Eric Gonthier!
This is Coach Eric's 10th year coaching for both RYSC and Premier. He is the unique kind of coach that you see on the pitch that observes, takes notes and understands that youth soccer is a game with long-term development goals. He is a player's coach, the kind you always wish you had. Coach Eric's calm demeanor on and off the field allows his players to thrive, learn and develop while working hard in a fun yet highly competitive environment.
