Good Luck girls and Coach Ella has you continue your journey on the Road to Texas and representing not only OH North, but Pacesetter Soccer Club! 


Ella Walsh named Girls Director of Coaching

Mike Hamouda  has made the decision to resign from his Directors role at Pacesetter SC, he will continue to coach for the club as a head coach. We want to thank Mike for his work as a full time Director at the club. 

We have moved swiftly to replace Mike and we are happy to announce that Ella Walsh will be moved into the Girls Director of Coaching role as of July 1st.  Ella was recently named Technical Director so it will be an easy transition into the role. 

There will be an immediate search for a new Technical Director and we hope to have someone in place by the time we start back in August.
