About Me

My name is Frank DeChellis from Welland, Ontario, Canada.  I am married and have three sons who play(ed) soccer.  We were also involved in ice hockey, basketball and lacrosse.  And Rugby.  And Skiing.  And golf.  And Cross Country running. You get the idea ...

I've coached soccer at the club, district and college levels since 1988.  I also deliver coaching education for the Ontario Soccer Association.  You can follow me on Twitter @CoachFrank66 .

My main soccer assignments at the moment are
  • Head Coach, Men's Varsity Soccer, Niagara College
  • Master Coach Developer, Ontario Soccer 
  • Occasional guest coach to about 50 youth teams coached by friends and family :)
My passions right now are grassroots soccer in schools, coaching education and making Niagara College a destination for soccer players looking to play at the post secondary level.

As for certification, I have a National A-License with the Canadian Soccer Association, Level 3 Theory NCCP , Core Evaluator NCCP, and a member of the Ontario College of Teachers.  

During my real life I am a member of the faculty in the School of Technology at Niagara College in Welland. 

I hope this journal can serve as a resource for other coaches.
