California Odyssey Soccer Club is so excited to have Andrea Lomeli leading our Odyssey Juniors & Elite Juniors Program. Coach Andrea, as she is known, has grown this grassroots program into a fun, organized and entertaining experience for young children wanting an introduction to soccer, while fostering technical development and learning the fundamentals of the game. This program teaches our youngest members teamwork, social interaction and sportsmanship, and offers opportunities for our “Elite Juniors” to participate and train with our club teams to further their level of competition and prepare them for the next stage of club soccer.
“Having the opportunity to work with our youngest players in the Juniors Program is such a rewarding experience. I truly enjoy building relationships with families and being a part of their child’s journey. I am supported by an amazing staff of fellow competitive club coaches and current college players who together help develop and nurture our juniors in a safe and fun environment. The energy in each session is contagious for all and the memories in the making are full of friendships, learning opportunities, and the love of the game. It has been a blessing running this program for the last 4 years and being able to give back to the community and growing our Odyssey family,” says Coach Andrea.
“Coach Andrea brings a remarkable level of energy and enthusiasm to our youngest members. She has grown our small program into a program with a blueprint that is in a league of its own. We are so grateful for Coach Andrea and the love, sweat and tears that she pours into nurturing our youngest members, while wrapping their little hearts around this game we all love so much. Each one of the children that have been through this program graduate with Coach Andrea’s stamp on their heart, and theirs on hers! The Board of Directors wants to thank you for all your hard work, inspiration and graciousness that you pour into our youngest members every day.”
