Spring 2014 Academy Tournament

Coach Laylla da Cruz

Dear Academy Parents,

We thank you for being a part of the Boerne Soccer Club and we will strive to help each of your children reach their potential, dreams and goals.  

I am also delighted to announce we have Brazilian born Laylla da Cruz join our Academy program in a coaching capacity this season.

Laylla will help with all age groups, but primarily be working with Director of Coaching, Ben Loney, in coaching the U10 Girls White and Black teams.  

Ben is excited to have Laylla join the program after both witnessing her play and getting the opportunity to work with her at UTSA Women's Soccer Program. 

"It is a privilege to have Laylla be involved with the girls in the program," said Ben.

"Laylla has tremendous technical ability that even top soccer players dream of having, which fits perfectly with technical training being at the forefront of our academy program.

"We are lucky to already have a coach and player of Kaytee O’Brien's quality on our coaching staff, and now we have two.”  “The technical ability these ladies have will be an asset to the program."

Please take a moment to read this article written about Coach Laylla.

Loney announced as new Director of Coaching

Ben Loney, FC Thunder Director of Coaching

FC Thunder and the Boerne Soccer Club Board of Directors are pleased to announce Ben Loney as the new Director of Coaching.  Ben brings an impressive coaching background, strong leadership skills, and experience gained both in England and the US.  His varied experience, coupled with his passion for enriching kid’s lives through the game of soccer, make him an exciting addition to the Boerne club.

Coach Loney brings extensive knowledge from years of playing and coaching within the English soccer community.  For the past 5 and a half years he has been the Director of Academy for NB Ajax Soccer Club. As a coach and director, Ben is well known for his talent of improving players and coaches while producing some of the best teams in the state.  He holds a USSF A License, USSF National License, and English F.A. Level 2.

Ben’s philosophy is heavily based in technical development and believes it is the foundation required to build the player, team, and club.  Coach Loney’s influence and education stem through experience from the British FA, the NSCAA, Coerver Coaching and the USSF. He strives to create a player-centered program that enlightens, empowers and inspires the players of Boerne Soccer Club.

Ben is married to his beautiful wife Jennifer and they have an amazing little girl, Emelia (15mths).

We would also like to extend our gratitude to outgoing Director of Coaching, David Rosales.  David has been a part of the Boerne family for many years and has been instrumental in its’ growth.  He will continue to be a FC Thunder coach for the U11G and U15G San Antonio select teams.  In addition, David will be using this time to complete his degree in architecture.

We feel very fortunate having attracted a Director of Ben’s ability, experience, and reputation and believe that Boerne Soccer Club and FC Thunder will continue in its journey and its commitment to excellence.  We will be hosting a “Meet and Greet” for Coach Loney at a later date.  Please give Ben and his family warm welcome into FC Thunder and the Boerne Soccer community.
