2018-19 WHYFC Coaches Slate Announced


We are very excited about the 2018-19 Wilmington Hammerheads Youth Soccer coaching roster.  It is one of the most talented groups of coaches this club has ever had.  Putting a coaching roster together for a club of this size takes a lot of work, conversations, research, and thought.  I am thrilled at the coaching assignments and believe that each coach brings a skill set that is needed for his/her particular team(s) assignment.

from L-R WHYFC's Kevin Johnson, CFA's Ross Morgan, WHYFC's Carson Porter, and Coast FA's Joel Banta

WILMINGTON, NC / MYRTLE BEACH, SC (April 5, 2018) – Wilmington Hammerheads Executive Director, Carson Porter and Coast FA Executive Director, Heyward Gulledge are excited to announce an innovative partnership between the two clubs that will improve player development and player opportunities for all members of both clubs.

The partnership will help bring the two soccer communities together, by consolidating and sharing resources, and working together to improve among other things, coaching education and player opportunities. 

“In the world of youth soccer, there are times when we get caught up in wins and losses and who is better than who,” said Porter, “but ultimately we are all working to improve the environment for our players, give them a great experience, and provide them opportunities to be the best they can be.  This partnership will help us accomplish these goals.”
