Head CoachTommy Sermanni 

Assistant Coach- Gary Ireland 

Assistant Coach & Manager- Carine Ireland

Tommy Sermanni is considered one of the most experienced coaches in the womens game. Formerly the Australian Womens National Team and USA Womens National Team coach, few coaches can boast his experience. 

Management experienced: In 2007 our staff took the University of North Carolina Women’s Soccer team to Australia & New Zealand (read here) on a post season tour after their NCAA Championship winning season and enjoyed both wonderful sightseeing and great opposition which gave the tour an ideal mix of high quality soccer and vacation.  Because it was a post-season tour there was a stronger sightseeing component however this was also a tour which enabled the players to train regularly and gain invaluable international experience vs. the Australian Womens Soccer team, the New Zealand womens national team and the Queensland Womens Soccer team in preparation for UNC's Fall 2008 NCAA pre-season. Members of the Soccerbook staff are Australian citizens and know the country extremely well as well as enjoying extensive soccer and business connections guaranteeing a high caliber event.
