JHYS Names New Leader!


Jackson Hole Youth Soccer is pleased to announce the hiring of Dan Norton as the new Club Director. Dan has been involved with the club since he moved to Jackson from New Orleans in 2005. He has coached competitive and recreational teams. Additionally, he worked as the club's Referee Coordinator for the past two-and-a-half years.


"Dan's experience and knowledge of the club will be instrumental as he leads the club into the future," club President Brendan Schulte said.


Prior to moving to Jackson, Dan worked for the New Orleans Soccer Academy in roles such as Club Administrator, Youth Development Director and as a Coach. During his time in New Orleans, he also coached the Varsity team at Louise McGehee School while working as the Director of soccer clinics for Pre-K through 4th grade.


Dan graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead Minnesota with a B.A. in Physical Education and Health Education. Additionally he holds a US Soccer Federation National "C" Coaching License and a US Youth Soccer Association National Youth License.


Dan is a 2010 graduate of Leadership Jackson Hole. Since 2005, Dan has worked for the Jackson-Teton County Parks and Rec Department as Recreation Supervisor- Adult Sports & Fitness.


"The opportunity to lead Jackson Hole Youth Soccer is truly an honor," Dan said. "I have enjoyed serving this great community through my time at parks and recreation and look forward to continuing to serve the community in this new role. I am excited to now be able to work with the youth of this community on a daily basis and strengthen their passion for soccer."


Dan is looking forward to continuing the growth outgoing Jackson Hole Youth Soccer club director Carlos Elizondo oversaw during his 5 years with the Club. He is very excited to begin work and to meet all participants, parents, and supporters of JHYS. Dan will start on February 10th and has already been meeting with board and staff to discuss the upcoming year.
