TORONTO, Ontario – Rahim Mohamed, Technical Director at the Toronto High Park Football Club, today announced the appointment of Eric Tenllado as the Club’s Coach Development Manager and Director of Coaching for U09-U10 Boys and Girls.

“I am thrilled to announce the appointment of Eric today.  Eric’s experience, knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm will be a tremendous asset to the Club and community in the coming weeks, months and years.  Eric will immediately become one of the youngest, if not youngest, UEFA Pro license holder in Canada and the only one working strictly with the important U09-U10 age group.”

Eric comes to Toronto High Park FC having recently worked at RCD Espanyol in Barcelona, Spain as an academy coach for the past seven years.  He was also teaching the UEFA B, UEFA A and UEFA Pro License courses for the past two years.  Eric has extensive experience nurturing and developing younger players between ages of 8 and 12.

In Eric’s role as Coach Development Manager, he will coordinate the development efforts of all THPFC coaches.  Coaching development correlates directly to player development.  The Club will continue to make strides to increase support for all coaches seeking higher levels of certification, as well as provide more resources, mentorship and developmental opportunities for all coaches throughout the year.

As Director of Coaching for the U09-U10 Boys and Girls, he is responsible for the holistic development of all players in those age groups.  Eric will put together seasonal plans for the age group, teams and players consistent with LTPD principles, and will be responsible for training, games and festivals.

“We are very fortunate Eric decided to come to THPFC.  He will play an integral role in the future of this Club both in terms of developing our young, talented players but also our coaches.  Eric’s dedication to developing others will be a tremendous asset to the Technical Staff and all players he works with.”
