Kansas City Athletics is excited to announce the addition of KU volunteer Assistant coach and longtime KC area club coach, Derek Shoare to its technical staff. Shoare has a history of coaching and developing some of the best players and teams in the KC metro area. He is a 3 time Kansas Youth Coach of the Year (2005, 2014, 2015) and a Region II Coach of the Year (2013). He has served as the KU volunteer Assistant Coach since 2015.
Shoare will be responsible for the new ‘College Summer Program’ which will be available to all KC Athletics outgoing high school seniors and alumni.
“One of our goals is to create a “club for life” environment, so we wanted to offer a great opportunity for our college players to stay fit and sharp when they come home for the summer. We also wanted to prepare our high school seniors for the rigors of their first college pre-season. There is simply nobody more qualified to run this program than Derek. We are excited to have him join our team”, said KC Athletics Executive Director, Huw Williams
The College Summer Program is free for all KC Athletics players (current outgoing seniors or alumni). For more details on the program please email Derek Shoare directly at Dshoare@challengersports.com
