2019 Teams: 05 Boys
Shaun Mahoney is a past Alliance director who has coached at both SCSA and Columbus Express. He is presently the Associate Men’s Head Soccer Coach at UIndy.
I have worked in club soccer in central Indiana for over 25 years. Mostly as a coach, but a couple years on the administrative side. I previously coached a couple of Alliance teams for two years when it was first created. I’m excited about this position, as it provides me a chance to be back on the field having a positive impact on players and coaches.
Shaun enjoys visiting state parks and spending time outside. He also enjoys finding time with family and friends at new restaurants or some of his favorites in the Indy area. Shaun’s favorite soccer team is Manchester United but don’t hold that against him. If you see Shaun out on the fields, be sure and introduce yourself and give him a big SCSA welcome! We are lucky to have him at the club.
According to John Higgins, Head Coach at UIndy, “Shaun is a player’s coach and the players at UIndy will love working with him.” Higgins added, “He brings a lot of experience and has a great attention to detail that will be a massive asset in recruiting and retention. He knows how to manage a program and has the similar values to me in that he wants a holistic approach to the development of the student-athletic.”
In addition to his team’s success on the field, Mahoney’s teams also excelled in the classroom, earning four National Soccer Coaches Association of American (NSCAA) Team Academic Awards in 2010-11, 2013 and 2015.
Shaun is looking forward to working with the 05 boys this year!
