The Northwest Athletic Department is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Andy Zamora as the new Varsity Girls Soccer Coach. Coach Zamora has written a few words to express his excitement to be joining the the NW community!
“Welcome to the 2020 season! My name is Andy Zamora and I am very excited to be taking on the role of Head Coach of the Northwest Varsity Girls Soccer team. I would like to provide you with some information regarding myself, my approach towards the game of soccer, and the plan for the team for the upcoming season. To start, I have played soccer my entire life and having the opportunity to pass some of what I’ve learned along the way to the next generation of players has been one of my most rewarding things I’ve ever done. I grew up in Montgomery County playing soccer with the Wheaton Boys club and Potomac Soccer Club. While at St. Johns College High School I was a 1st Team All-Metropolitan and Gatorade National Player of the Year. I then went on to play 4 years at the University of Maryland. After my college career, I played several years of Semi-Pro soccer and then transitioned into coaching soccer. I have been involved with development of Youth Soccer players for the past 25 years at the Middle School, High School and Club level.
I am very passionate about the game, the process of developing player skills, bonding a strong and united team, and developing good work ethic during practices and games. It is my belief that as a coach it is my role to ensure that all of this can be achieved while having fun along the way. My objective for the team will be focused on building confidence, self-esteem, discipline and a sense of commitment and pride in their team and school.”
We would like to welcome Coach Zamora to the Jaguar Family!
