David Benning, Director of Soccer Operationsdso@nullpickeringsoccer.ca

Dave brings the experience and success required in this position to continue building the Club and provide additional leadership in the delivery of our technical strategic plan.

As a TD, Dave has most recently been instrumental in creating a showcase pathway for players to be scouted and recruited by university coaches both here in Canada and in the United States. From 1993 to 2003 and 2013 to 2017, Benning was one of the first technical directors hired in Ontario (Glen Shields FC) which opened a new industry and vision for youth clubs to hire a professionally licensed coach(s) to provide the necessary technical leadership to all club staff. From 2003 to 2013 Dave was the Technical Programs Manager at Canada Soccer where he was responsible for the National Training Centres across the country. In addition, he was the U15WNT Head Coach and U17WNT Assistant Coach at the U17 World Cup in Azerbaijan in 2012 where the team finished as quarter-finalist to North Korea.

David will act as the Club’s chief spokesperson for Club-level technical matters involving all governing bodies and leagues. He will be focusing on the overall technical vision and plans developed for our approved 2019-2022 Strategic Plan with a mandate to maximize a positive, standards-based culture including all required technical administration of planning, reporting and budgeting.
