CUSA has partnered with UK International Soccer to help provide professional trainers within our recreational program. Our first coach within this partnership is Coach Daniel Thomas. He will be leading our Fall Recreational Training programs this year, and we can wait for you to meet him in person.
Daniel Thomas (23) from Wales (UK) is currently in the USA (Cincinnati) undertaking his master’s degree in Sports Leadership with UK International Soccer though a paid internship.
Daniel’s background in football stems from being a young boy where he played for his local club and Caerphilly academy until the age of 12, from there he moved onto play for Newport county and represented Wales Boys Club at 15 & 16 against Scotland & England. Following this, he played senior football at the Semi-pro level in the Welsh Division 3 and the Welsh Division 1. Alongside playing football Daniel had a futsal scholarship through Welsh Professional club Cardiff City FC where he competed against teams all over the UK. During this time Daniel started coaching and had since then obtained a BSc Hons Degree in Football Coaching & Development and various coaching qualifications such as his FAW C Licence & FAW UEFA B Licence while coaching at Merthyr Town Academy.
