As the DOC and Player Development of NBEFC, I am very excited to announce that Colin Garon will join our coaching staff for the 2013-2014 season, as Director of Goalkeeper Training.
Colin Garon joined the UC Davis women's soccer program in August, 2013, after spending the last three years at Humboldt State, most recently as its interim head coach.
Before starting his career as a college soccer coach at Humboldt State, his alma mater, Garon was a four-year letterwinner as the Jacks' primary goalkeeper. A fixture in HSU's starting lineup from 1998-2001, he still holds numerous top 10 program records.
Ranked third all-time with 17 shutouts, Garon also possesses a 1.52 career goals against average, the seventh-lowest figure in the program's history.
As a freshman, Garon recorded 5.5 shutouts, the seventh-highest total recorded by a Jacks netminder. Two years later, he earned his second single-season top 10 mark when he ended the 2000 campaign with a 1.20 goals against average.
Prior to his coaching stint at HSU, Garon was the head coach of the Poway Vaqueros Soccer Club from 2008-10. Throughout his tenure with the organization, he led two teams to the State Cup finals and served as a goalkeeper specialist for the club's youth teams.
Garon earned his bachelor's degree in history from Humboldt State and began his pursuit of another degree in mathematics shortly after Humboldt State offered him a position as its head men's soccer assistant coach in 2010.
The new GK training schedule with Coach Garon will be.
Tuesday U9-U11 boys/girls from 5:30-6:30, U12-U18 boys/girls from 6:30-7:30pm.
Wednesday, U9-U11 boys/girls from 5:30-6:30, U12-U18 boys/girls from 6:30-7:30pm.
