Taking the next step forward in improving the game in Eastern Ontario, the EODSA is proud to announce that it has partnered with Jason Beckford as our first Technical Lead and Committee Chair.
Jason has a stellar resume, including professional play with Manchester City FC from 1986 to 1992. In addition to playing, Jason has his UEFA A coaching license and his Canada Soccer Youth and Children’s Licenses. He has coached at Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and was a Manchester FA Licensed Tutor where Jason began his specialization in Coach training. Jason is currently an Ontario Soccer Master Learning Facilitator and Coach Developer and has delivered parts of Canada Soccer’s National C and B License courses.
The EODSA is on a year long mission to modernize its governance and membership documents and policy framework. While we work on those important pieces, we cannot forget that it is the development of the player that is always our guiding principle. Having Jason address the technical and logistical side of the youth game at the same time will, in the near future, see the EODSA in a leading role in soccer in Ontario.
Please join us in welcoming Jason to the EODSA.
