HEY SMOKY HILL GIRLS! Have you met your new soccer coach, Mr. Dayton Owen, aka Coach “O” ?

Coach Owen owned The National Goalkeeper Academy, trained coaches how to train goalkeepers, and was nominated Coach of the year. He helped Florida State build their team.  “ I coach with a lot of energy and passion. I don’t like to lose, and I believe Smoky Hill has the potential to do great things. The more you attack the less you have to attend. I run the best formation that fits the players and the game situation.”

Mr. Owen believes in FINAO- Failure Is Not An Option- Do not accept failure. Find a way to fix it and turn it into a positive. He has coached for 39 years and has won 800 victories.

Note from the coach: The junior varsity team will not go 0-13-1 ever again, and JV players will always get pulled up if they put forth the effort and are ready to get a feel of the varsity experience.  

Coach has a question for you during tryouts and he advises that you answer it carefully when it is asked or get ready for some running… “WHO DO YOU PLAY FOR?”

If you are interested in joining the girls soccer team preseason starts NOW! Preseason conditioning and indoor practices with training to the best of your ability. “ Ttake your best, and make it better. It starts with a coach that believes in you, and I believe”, says Coach ‘O’.
