San Ramon FC is pleased to introduce Shaun Collins as the club’s new Recreational Program Manager. As a teacher with a passion for sports, Shaun’s education, enthusiasm, and experience will benefit the players and families in the Recreational Program and the club as a whole. Collins grew up in Danville and attended college at San Jose State University, where he completed his degree in Recreation Management. His education continued at Cal State East Bay where he earned both a teaching credential and a master's degree in Educational Technology Leadership.
Collins works as a physical education teacher at Twin Creeks Elementary School in San Ramon. He is excited to join the staff at San Ramon FC and looks forward to providing a safe and educational experience to help kids maximize their potential. He believes youth sports give a child an invaluable opportunity to learn and grow as both a teammate and a person.
“Gaining a passion for a sport can provide a path to life-long physical (as well as mental) fitness, which is extremely important as we continue to rely more and more on technology in our daily lives”, Collins said.
Shaun has coached competitive youth ice hockey at both regional and national levels. His experience has taught him the importance of remaining respectful and humble towards coaches, teammates, opponents, officials, and parents. His coaching knowledge and experience will help him lead the club's popular recreational soccer program.
When he’s not coaching or teaching, Shaun enjoys spending time at the new City Center, trying new restaurants with his new fiancée, and eating at his favorite spot in San Ramon, the Hula Wok BBQ. He’s currently looking for a pup and is open to suggestions. If you’d like to welcome Shaun to the club, ask him a question about the recreational program, or share a puppy suggestion, you can send him an email.
Registration for San Ramon FC’s fall recreational soccer program is now open. Learn more and sign up today. With Shaun as the new Recreational Program Manager, your child will enjoy a fun, fulfilling youth soccer experience.
