Women's Soccer – Head Coach
Location: CC 104
Josh Tyler enters his fifth season coaching with St. Charles Community College. In his first season as head coach in 2014, Tyler led SCC to their first ever national Championship berth. The team finished ninth in the nation. He was awarded Region XVI Coach of the Year.
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 to Mid Rivers SC.
Josh holds a U.S. National, NSCAA Goalkeeper Level I and NSCAA Coaching Level II licenses. 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 aren't 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 my players who want to play after SCC have that chance. So far, all the players who want to play have been able to. I know college is very expensive and whatever I can do to drive that cost down, I will do."
Josh lives in St. Peters with his wife Emily, a first grade teacher, and their two boys, Jackson and Harrison.
