CYSA Hires Philippe Blin to Head Up ODP

California Youth Soccer Association is proud to announce that Coach Philippe Blin has been hired as the new Olympic Development Program Technical Director. Philippe comes to us with a strong coaching background and an impeccable win record in the US Youth Soccer National Championships Series, and at the collegiate level as the head coach for San Jose State University and on staff at the highly respected Santa Clara University.

Philippe brings to us more than 25 years of coaching experience from the youth level to the college level, which includes some 10 years of coaching on the Region IV ODP Staff and the CYSA State ODP Staff.

Philippe is in the process of putting together new Program Goals for the CYSA Olympic Development Program that will include a highly respected and quality staff. His goals will include ways to lower the fees, attract higher-level staff that can provide a solid training program and expand the opportunities for our youth to be recruited by the National team and college coaches.

While Philippe commits to bringing a new focus to the Olympic Development Program, he will continue to be the Technical Director for the Pleasanton Rage Club, where he has coached teams to several National Championships.
