As part of a broad initiative to unite Wisconsin club soccer, Milwaukee native Billy Solberg will be returning to Wisconsin to join the staff of FC Wisconsin Eclipse in the ECNL, and FC Wisconsin Nationals in the US Soccer Development Academy, for the 2013-2014 season.
Solberg brings a wealth of experience in developing players and teams to success at the highest youth levels. Most recently, Solberg was the ECNL Director for Challenge Soccer Club in Houston, TX. Prior to moving to Houston, Solberg led FC Milwaukee boys teams to 2 USYS National Finals in 2005 and 2006, losing the 2006 National Championship in a penalty shoot-out. Solberg was also the Head Women's Soccer Coach at the University of Houston from 2001-2005.
"We are tremendously excited to have Billy come back to Wisconsin and be a part of helping FC Wisconsin Eclipse players maximize their potential," said Christian Lavers. "He will add more perspective, personality, and insight for our players and for Wisconsin soccer generally."
Solberg will also serve as the Associate Director of the US Soccer Development Academy for FC Wisconsin Nationals beginning in the fall. For more information on the FC Wisconsin structure for 2013-2014, click here.
