Rob Gale Brings His Insight to Sporting Omaha FC
Rob Gale is coming to Sporting Omaha FC August 8th - 12th to work with our Girls and Boys Elite & Gold teams, 2002 through 1998s.
He’s one of our best.
It’s not surprising, considering Robert Gale comes from a footballing family. It’s hard to question the pedigree when five relatives hold UEFA licences. And the name Gale is synonymous with soccer in parts of Africa, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the USA and, of course, Canada.
Gale has logged many of these miles himself, first as a footballer in England with Fulham FC and Wycombe Wanderers, and then as a coach in the United Kingdom and North America. He did this while simultaneously pursuing his licenses— accumulating both UEFA and Canada Soccer credentials.
For the past eight years, Gale has been putting this knowledge to use as Technical Director of Manitoba Soccer, where he has helped over 35 players reach the national program.
And Gale has been able to transfer this success to the international stage. As an assistant coach he helped guide Canada’s U-17 Men’s National Team to its best ever result in international competition—silver at the 2011 CONCACAF U-17 Championship. This qualified the team for the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2011, a feat they repeated in 2013.
