ANB Academy Program to Host US University Coach

April 14, 2009 (RELEASE) -- The ANB Academy Program is hosting Coach Joe DeMay, assistant coach of IPFW Women's Soccer Team. This clinic is open to all and will take place on Saturday April 18, 2009 from 10:30 to 12:30 PM.

On June 21, 2007, IPFW head women's soccer coach Margaret Saurin finalized her staff with the hiring of Joe DeMay as assistant women's soccer coach.

Joe DeMay comes to IPFW with 15 years of coaching experience at the club, high school, ODP, and college levels. While his background includes plenty of goalkeeping experience, DeMay has also been very successful in coaching field players to a high level of success.

As a member of the Region II ODP staff DeMay has had the opportunity to work with some of the best players in the Midwest, including players who have been selected for youth national team duty. As Director of ODP Goalkeeping in Ohio-North DeMay was responsible for training and evaluating all goalkeepers involved in the program. During his years in Ohio-North he saw five goalkeepers reach the regional team with four of those goalkeepers moving on to the Division I collegiate level of play.

In addition to his ODP duties Joe served for two years as a Women's Assistant and Goalkeeper Coach at Youngstown State University. Most recently he served as the Head Boy's and Girl's Soccer Coach at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio where he helped guide both teams to regional play in the state tournament and a state final appearance for the boy's team in 2005.

In his time at Cardinal Mooney DeMay assisted six players in receiving Division I soccer scholarships. To fill a void at the club level, DeMay founded the Phoenix Soccer Club. In three years he helped build the club's numbers to over 150 players and 10 teams significantly raising the standard of play in the Youngstown area. He also holds a USSF B License and a USSF National Youth License.

ANB academy's vision is to become Canada’s leading soccer development organization. Its mission is to identify Canadian soccer talent, and to maximize the potential of players at any level, through professional coaching and training.
