WOLFEBORO — Kingswood Athletics is pleased to announce the appointment of Shane Flood as the new head coach for the varsity girls’ soccer team.
Flood, a Kingswood alum (Class of 1996) brings a wealth of soccer coaching experience with him, having coached travel, recreation and indoor soccer teams. Flood has been an assistant for the Kingswood boys’ program for the last three years and is the head coach of the Coastal girls’ team for the Granite State Games.
Flood’s been coaching at the competitive and elite level for more than 10 years. His goal as a coach is to maintain an atmosphere where players are relaxed, engaged and do not fear the consequences of mistakes. Flood moved to the Lakes region from Rye in 1990 and currently lives in Alton Bay with his wife and two children.
Flood will take over the program from Rob Kelly, who has been the head coach for the Knights since the fall of 2017. On replacing Kelly, Flood notes, “I’m looking forward to continuing the solid work coach Kelly and the girls’ coaches have done for the program at Kingswood, based on what I’ve seen, the girls are headed in the right direction. If we focus on improving individually, improving as a team, and enjoying the game, wins will come as a byproduct.”
Director of Athletics Aaron House, commented on the recent hire, “Under coach Kelly we have seen some stability settle in as it relates to overall girls’ soccer program numbers. With coach Flood, we hope to see girls’ soccer participation grow, not just at Kingswood but within our GWRSD communities. Based on Shane’s vision for the girls’ program and his passion for the sport we are very excited to have him joining our ranks as the varsity coach.”
Returning Kingswood girls’ soccer players will have the ability to meet their new coach during an upcoming meeting that coach Flood is currently planning. Kingswood Athletics urges all girls interested in playing soccer at KRMS or KRHS to register now in order to make sure they receive information about meetings, summer sessions, etc.
