Newcomer Brian Desjardins has been hired as business operations manager with the Red Deer City Soccer Association, while former technical director Ado Sarcevic is moving into the role of soccer operations manager.

Sarcevic’s position came about following a novel agreement signed between the RDCSA and Red Deer Renegades.

Desjardins will oversee day-to-day operations with the RDCSA and will report to the board of directors. He grew up playing soccer in Central Alberta and has spent the last 15 years in the Northwest Territories, most recently holding the high-profile position as executive director of Northwest Territories Tourism.

“I look forward to working with everyone in raising the profile of soccer in all ways possible for the association,” Desjardins said in a press release. “I applaud the work and successes already achieved by RDCSA and I am confident that by working together we will grow soccer to new heights.”

Sarcevic will provide technical expertise for both the RDCSA and Renegades.

RDCSA has also added new programs such as under-eight boys and girls developmental, adapted introduction to soccer for children with developmental disabilities, a men’s over-35 league and Byte Size Coaching youth soccer curriculum.

Byte Size is a customizable coaching website containing a balanced and progressive curriculum designed to benefit the players and coaches alike. The program gives coaches the tools they need to succeed.

“We are thrilled about the direction our association has taken with key administrative changes and the launch of some new programs. Currently, our outdoor registrations continue to be strong at 1,500 and we look forward to the year ahead,” said RDCSA president Paul Morigeau.
