Going forward NCW Alliance FC jerseys will feature OPS FC and United SC logos on the sleeves and the counterpart youth clubs will feature Alliance’s. The recognition achieved as each side takes the pitch is a symbolic starting point for the future interactions between the clubs and their coaches and players. As members of the Northwest Premier League (NWPL) the Alliance Women are currently the top level of play in the valley and surrounding areas.

 

 

OPS FC Technical Director Mike Osborn anticipates an important partnership between
the Alliance and the two youth clubs. “It has been a long-term goal of ours to provide a
clear developmental pathway for the youth soccer player in North Central Washington.
We’re very excited about the opportunities this partnership will create for the youth in
our region.”

 

United SC President Cindy Abouammo looks forward to the enhanced
relationships. “We are thrilled that OPS FC, United SC, and NCW Alliance will be
working together to create a clear pathway for soccer players in our region. This coming
year is going to bring a tremendous amount of opportunity for youth and adult players in
North Central Washington. As we move forward together in our partnership we will
work together to grow a program that covers all aspects of player development, college
soccer preparation, and semi-pro competition.”

NCW Alliance announce new Head Coach Alvaro Rodriguez

WENATCHEE, Wash.— North Central Washington Alliance Football Club announces that Alvaro Rodriguez has been named the new Head Coach of the Women’s soccer team competing in the Northwest Premier League (NWPL). Rodriguez replaces outgoing coach Jamie Richards who recently stepped down from the post.

NCW Alliance General Manager Javier Reyna says of the transition, “I would like to thank Jamie Richards for all his hard work and dedication these last two years and for helping us build a foundation for the club. I would Like to welcome Alvaro Rodriguez as the new head coach for the 2019 season. After meeting with the management team we decided that Rodriguez was the right fit for the club philosophy and to continue building what we have started. Alvaro currently holds a national coaching diploma with the United Soccer Coaches Associations and is well known in the community.”

 

Rodriguez is ready to take on the task of leading the Alliance in the competitive elite adult women’s league. “I’ve always been a person that loves challenges and I truly believe that I’m ready for my next challenge which will be to coach at a higher level of competition,” he says. “I still remember coaching in the adult league and I fell in love with the tactical part of the game, it’s like a game of chess, it’s all about strategy, trying to guess what your opponent’s next move will be and countering that with something better. I’ve coached the men’s league but have never coached women at this level and I can’t wait to start and teach my players a little bit of what I’ve learned throughout my playing days and coaching years.”

Rodriguez has a long history in greater Wenatchee area soccer. He’s been a coach in the Chelan / Douglas Hispanic League.  “I was eighteen in 1993 and coached for a club called Los Cerritos,” Rodriguez remembers.  “We ended up winning a couple of championships.” From there Rodriguez coached in the Wenatchee Valley Rec League, then with the (former) Wenatchee Fire.  “After my first year my friend (Frank Cuevas) decided to make another club (Wenatchee Valley United) because we wanted to coach our own A team and truly believed in retaining the same players for at least two seasons so they could bond. I coached the G99 Real FC up until 2014 when most of my girls started high school soccer and it’s very rewarding to see that at least 70% of the girls that I’ve coached played and are playing for school varsity.”

Rodriguez lends his love of soccer and his coaching experience to his own family. “I have two girls of my own and my youngest is 13 and I have been coaching her since she was four.  I’m currently assisting with the G05’s OPS team.  Through out the years I’ve been taking coaching licenses to better assist the girls that I’ve coached and am coaching, the highest license that I have is my national and will work on obtaining my advanced national in the near future.”

Rodriquez has a clear idea of what he wants to accomplish with the Alliance. “Building a strong foundation for the years to come, just keeping the game as simple as possible,” he says.  He says he’s ready to get back to basics, “Simple things like teaching our players how to correctly make a pass or how to control a ball.  We are so focused on athleticism and aggressiveness that we forget that the most important thing is keeping the game simple: simple passes and good control of the ball.  Someone once said “playing football is very simple, but playing simple football is the hardest thing there is.”

Alvaro is a proponent of all-around skills and a team mentality of all-around play. “Every player needs to be able to play every position on the field except goalkeeper,” he says.  “Your best defense is your best offense.  The only way you’re going to have a good team is by giving everyone a chance to play. Playing time makes players better, not sitting in the bench. Likewise, my defense is as important as my offense, it only takes one goal to win a game if the opponent doesn’t score on you.”
