Boys and Girls ODP Coordinators Announced
PA West Soccer introduces Betsy Warren as the Girls ODP Coordinator and Greg Helsel as the Boys ODP Coordinator.
The adjustment to the ODP program leadership allows for Ms. Warren and Mr. Helsel to work specifically with the girls and boys portions of the program respectively. This new approach will allow each coordinator to focus on fewer teams and the specific needs of those teams.
Ms. Warren has 15 years of coaching experience from the youth to college to semi-pro levels. The Chatham University women’s coach holds US Soccer National C License and as well as United Soccer Coaches National Diploma.
Mr. Helsel has been a fixture in soccer in Western PA. He’s worked at a variety of levels including youth, high school, and college. He has a US Soccer A License and a United Soccer Coaches Advance National Diploma. He is also an instructor with the PA West Soccer Coaching Education Instructor.
The duo replaces Paul Halford who resigned as the ODP Director effective February 11.
