ABOUT THE COACH
Josh Tyler enters his fourth season coaching with St. Charles Community College. The past three seasons he was the assistant/goalkeeper coach.
Tyler has more than 20 years of playing experience as well as eight years of coaching experience. He was a goalkeeper at Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Mo.
He started his coaching career with the Camdenton Lady Cougars, the only select girls team from the Lake of the Ozarks. Upon moving to St. Louis, he started coaching with St. Louis Soccer Camps, then moved over to Mid Rivers SC.
Josh holds a U.S. National License, along with NSCAA Coaching Licensee and his Level I Goalkeeper license from NSCAA. Tyler loves coaching at SCC: "I really feel I can make a difference with the players. We are working with athletes who are in a transition from high school to college, and many are not sure what they want to do after soccer." The biggest joy for Tyler is helping the players continue to play after SCC: " I have worked very hard to build relationships with other coaches and to ensure that all my players who want to play after SCC have that chance. So far, all the players who want to play have. I know college is very expensive and whatever I can do to drive that cost down, I will."
Josh lives in St. Peters with his wife Emily, a first grade teacher, and their two boys, Jackson and Harrison.
