TUKWILA, WA— (club release) Teddy Mitalas has been a part of the Sounders for years on many levels. Today, the Sounders Women welcome Mitalas back on the coaching and game day operations side. Mitalas’ last foray coaching the Sounders Women saw the team make the final four in three of the four years he was coaching.
“Once again, I am honored to be a part of the Seattle Sounders Women coaching staff.
Working with Coach Hubie is a great opportunity and I look forward to providing my “full 90” and more to see these skilled and talented athletes succeed,” said Mitalas, “It is quite humbling to be offered this opportunity to help build the foundation necessary to take our amateur college women players to the next level.”
A Sounders FC Golden Scarf award winner for his time in Washington as a soccer coach and director, Mitalas is excited to coach again at the highest level of amateur soccer for women in the United States through the W-League.
“Teddy knows everyone in the soccer community and with his years directing tournaments and coaching in Washington Youth Soccer, he gives us another asset to help these players chase the dream of playing at the highest levels,” stated Cliff McElroy, co-owner of the Sounders Women, “We are very happy to have him back onboard.”
Mitalas will start in his role immediately as the Sounders Women prepare for tryouts in March and begin the 2015 season with exhibitions starting in April. For more information, please visit www.sounderswomen.com.
