Emerson College is proud to announce that Head Women's Soccer Coach, David Suvak, has been awarded the prestigious US Soccer National A-Senior License.
A year and a half ago, David applied to, and was accepted into the US Soccer National A-Senior course. The A license award completes a 10-month coaching education journey. He was enrolled in US Soccer's National A-Senior Course to better lead the Emerson Women's Soccer program. The National A-Senior Course was intended to improve his coaching and continue his development as collegiate soccer coach and leader while working with the Emerson Women's Soccer team. The A-Senior Course focused on creating a high-performance playing environment, helping the players better understand attacking, defending and transition tactics in order to prepare, motivate and inspire the team in order to reach the desired level of success.
David now holds a US Soccer National A-Senior License, US Soccer National Youth License, United Soccer Coaches Premier Diploma and United Soccer Coaches Director of Coaching Diploma.
David is currently in his 10th season with the Emerson College Women's Soccer team. Since David's arrival the program has improved their performance in the highly competitive NEWMAC conference, won an ECAC New England Championship, and works with players typically in the top 1% of NCAA College Women's Soccer academic standards.
In his pursuit of excellence, David was looking to challenge the Emerson Women's Soccer team to increase their caliber of play, tactical awareness, preparation, and match compete level. At the same time, he was also improving his knowledge of the game, training and match preparation, and tactical understanding of game situations.
David is among just a few New England collegiate coaches to be awarded the National A-Senior license. In the course, he collaborated and shared information with MLS, USL and NCAA Division I coaches. He was the only NCAA Division III coach working on the license at this time.
