The Seattle Sounders Women are proud to announce that Hubert Busby will return as the head coach for the Sounders Women in 2015. Busby has had great success in developing players for the next level and his 2014 Sounders Women team finished with a 7-4-1 record just behind the Colorado Pride and eventual national champion LA Blues in the Western Conference.
Busby’s Women, along with the Sounders U23 team, will work with Washington Youth Soccer to further the soccer development footprint in Washington State.
“The game of soccer continues to grow throughout the State of Washington. The Sounders Women organization will continue to provide a pathway for players to reach their full potential in the sport. I’m excited to work with community clubs, Washington Youth Soccer, and the Seattle Reign to make this happen. With the Women’s World Cup months away, it will be another thrilling summer of soccer,” stated Busby.
As the Landscape of soccer evolves, Busby and the Sounders Women will work to give players the developmental opportunity to further their dream through youth, college, semi-professional, and professional soccer.
“Hubie represents a mainstay in the women’s game and we are happy to have him back leading our team. With the opportunity to identify and develop players from the youth level through the professional team here in Seattle, Hubie is the right guy to lead our young players,” reinforced Cliff McElroy, co-owner.
The Sounders Women will open pre-season in April. Stay tuned for announcements as we head into 2015.
