Updates from the Board – New Interim DOC named
Dear FC Thunder family,
I am sure you can agree with us that it has been an interesting month. Fortunately things are beginning to settle down a bit. We have made it past tryouts and our team rosters are all close to completing. Special thanks go out to all of our coaches for keeping the club moving forward.
The board wanted to let everyone know that Coach Danny has stepped down as the Interim Director of Coaching, effective 6/1/17, since the staff accomplished the two things that the club were most focused on for our future success, initially; getting through tryouts and helping set-up the rosters. Coach Danny will continue to coach for FC Thunder and will continue to serve the club. Thank you, Coach Danny!
Fortunately, we have many amazing coaches. We are excited to announce Coach Wayne Bartlett as the new Interim Director of Coaching. Coach Wayne’s knowledge of the club and management will be invaluable in maintaining the stability and success of FC Thunder both on and off the field. As with the other coaches, Wayne has already been working behind the scenes to help the club through this transitional stage.
Also, we wanted to let you know that Russell Burkey has agreed to fill the remaining term (1 year) for the recently vacated Operations Officer board position. Russell has worked for years with the club at the Recreation and Academy levels and has 3 players in the Select program, so is very familiar with many aspects of the club's operations. Welcome Russell!
We are beginning to run into summer schedules, so we apologize up front if information comes out slower than we all would wish. Several talented candidates have expressed interest in the DOC position. We are also looking to have our rescheduled Annual General Meeting in late July or early August, where we hope to lay out plans for the fall and beyond. As things are finalized, we will let you know.
Thank you for your continued support. We are looking forward to a great summer and an exciting season for all FC Thunder teams.
FC Thunder Board of Directors
Randy Garza, President
Kevin Land, Vice President
Becky Doran, Treasurer
Russell Burkey, Operations Officer
