The FC Heat Soccer Organization is very pleased to announce the appointment of our new Director of Coaching, Steve Yorke.
Steve has been with FC Heat since 2008 where he coached in the Recreational Program. Since then he has gone through the ranks, successfully coaching various Competitive teams over the last 4 years. He is a ‘D’ licensed coach with experience in The Coerver Coaching Program.
Born in England, Steve was signed on schoolboy forms by Port Vale in the English 3rd Division. He represented the British Royal Navy world-wide and captained the youth soccer team on tour. After arriving in California in 1981 he became Head of Coaching for John Napier Soccer Camps and went on to become Director of Coaching for the Rancho Bernardo Hornets (now the San Diego Soccer Club).
His fitness experience is vast and after managing a Nautilus Fitness Center he became an adult fitness instructor for The Golden Door Health Spa in Escondido, where he was offered the position of Fitness Director on the QEII cruise ship.
