Meet the Coaches
Coach Jason Hammonds is a certified competitive soccer coach with years of experience helping students excel and find their passion on the soccer field. In addition to Casteel, he has served as a District Commissioner on the State of Arizona’s Youth Soccer Board and has coached several competitive soccer teams in the East Valley.
Jason’s love for soccer was sparked when his oldest son, then age six, wanted to play and his team needed a coach. He soon volunteered for coaching and the rest, as they say, is history! His passion for both coaching and soccer was sparked and he went to accumulate over 11 years of experience coaching competitive soccer.
Since then, he has achieved several soccer licenses including US National C License, NFHS levels 1 and 2 as well as NCSAA Goalkeeping levels 1 and 2. In 2016-2017 Jason was named All CUSD Coach of the Year. He encourages the student’s academic success and aims to help them learn how to believe in themselves, build confidence and learn teamwork.
Jason’s ability to motivate his players has been demonstrated consistently on the soccer field where his teams continue to excel above the competition all while having fun.
Jason’s favorite soccer teams are the Manchester City and the San Jose Earthquakes!
