FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEADERSHIP CHANGE AT UNITED FUTBOL ACADEMY NORCROSS
Bryan Waltenburg to be named UFA Norcross Branch Director effective May 1, 2022
Norcross, GA – April 19, 2022
The Executive Board of United Futbol Academy has decided to make a change to focus on the families that play soccer at the UFA Norcross Branch. United Futbol Academy views the Norcross Branch as a strategic part of the overall club and the need to have a dynamic leader working exclusively at the branch is a necessary adjustment to continue serving our members and the surrounding communities.
Bryan’s wealth of experience in the soccer world has fostered a unique passion and commitment to the youth soccer landscape. He brings 25 years of coaching and leadership experience to UFA Norcross, having coached National Championship level teams all the way down to Academy under nines. He has been coaching in the Forsyth Branch for the last 5 years at the NPL/SAPL and ECNL Regional levels and currently holds a USSF “A” National License. In addition to coaching, Bryan has also served in various management/directorial roles including operations, marketing communications, events, technical/curriculum development/implementation and business development within the youth soccer and other various corporate sectors.
UFA’s Executive Director of Business Development, S. Deo Moleka, stated “It became increasingly important to us to have as a leader someone who would strictly focus on this diverse community. Bryan will also be supported by an entirely full-time staff to include a Boys Director, a Girls Director, and a Recreational Director. We are excited about this new direction for our Norcross community.”
Jason Smith, current UFA Norcross Branch Director, will be transitioning into a new role at the Elite Programs level with United Futbol Academy. We want to acknowledge all the hard work and dedication he gave to the Norcross Branch over the last few years.
United Futbol Academy Norcross is a youth soccer organization founded in 2014 to serve the Norcross community with the purpose of providing soccer skills along with life skills to youth players in the area. UFA continually seeks ways to offer the best in soccer for our community’s recreational, intermediate and advanced players.
