Brant Wojack Soccer Coaching Experience

Boys Varsity Soccer Head Coach at Leilehua High School, Oahu Hawaii
November, 2015 - 2017

Apprentice Coach at Mililani High School, Oahu Hawaii
Nov., 2014 – Feb., 2015
Observe and assist with on field training, participate in play to even out an odd man or when players are needed for scrimmage games. Volunteer as a referee for pre-season and unofficial friendly games. Highlights: Won the Oahu Interscholastic Association (OIA) D1 Championship. Won the HHSAA Boys Soccer State D1 Championships, Feburary 28, 2015.

Assistant Coach at Waianae High School, Oahu Hawaii
Nov., 2014 – Feb., 2015
Lead technical and tactical training sessions for both JV and Varsity Girls teams as well as for the Varsity Boys Team (no JV Boys). Coaching in the program was interesting, a first for me because the coaching staff split their time between boys and girls teams in order to prevent coaches and players from getting to know each other closely. Highlights: Finished the regular season 5-6-1 placing us as the second seed in the OIA Division II playoffs. Note: School is located in an underserved community with mild to severe social economic issues, coaching here is very rewarding and these players have a great sense of pride about themselves.

Assistant Coach at Waialua High School, Oahu Hawaii
Nov., 2013 – Feb., 2014
Coached second string players, worked on technical dribbling and passing skills as well as defensive 1v1 tactics. Highlights: After losing nearly every game we won the last game of the season against one of our rivalries. It meant so much to the players and parents winning that last game, it was like we'd just won the division championship.

AYSO Youth Teams U5 thru U19

Head Coach - U12 Mililani Boys: Aug., 2014 – July, 2015
Placed 2nd during EXTRA season and also in the Island's Best Tournament Championship. Highlights: We are the only team in the league that passes back to our goal keeper and not by mistake, we pass back regularly every game. This is a highlight for me because a lot of high school teams don't do this and I've trained my 10 and 11 years old boys to use this tactic consistently with success. Able to win against every team in the league except one, it's motivating having something to aim towards.

Head Coach – U12 Mililani Boys: Dec., 2013 – July, 2014
Select Silver team that ended up 12-7-3 over the entire season. Highlights: Lost games in the beginning but got progressively better as the season moved along. For the Silver division we won the Hawaii Rainbow Tournament Championship, great way to end the season.

Head Coach – U10 Mililani Girls: Dec., 2013 – July, 2014
Select Silver team that ended up 8-8-4 over the entire season. Highlights: Many, but one stands out in particularly and it came from a compliment a parent gave me towards the end of the season. "I want to thank you coach because my daughter was getting frustrated and started hating soccer, she quit her club team. I asked her to try AYSO and after playing this season you gave her confidence and made her fall in love with soccer again, I can't thank you enough". This without a doubt is one of the best compliments any coach could receive. Today this player continues playing AYSO Select and has also joined another club and is playing virtually every day.

Assistant Coach – U14 Mililani Boys: March – May, 2014
For this team I mostly coached foot skills and short sided games during practices and also covered game day lineups when the Head Coach was unable to attend. Overall record for the season was 5-3-1, not bad given some players were real misfits and others had only previously played a couple years or less. Challenges: Coaching players with an extreme variety of technical ability, early teen hormones and keeping them together. Highlights: Absolutely none from my point of view, this was a mildly painful season to coach. That said most of them are still playing today, they are better, and some moved up into playing club.

Head Coach - U10 Mililani Boys: Dec., 2012 – July, 2013
Placed 2nd in Hawaii Rainbow Tournament competitive Select Gold division Championship.

Assistant Coach - U19 Kahuku Girls: May-July, 2013
As the assistant coach I conducted the speed, agility, and footwork training sessions. Assisted head coach with drills and exercises related to team tactics.
