PWSI and VDA appoint Quan Phan as new Executive Director
Over the past eight years, Phan has been an important figure within the organizations serving as PWSI Technical Director and as a member of the VDA leadership team. He will succeed Cullina as Executive Director of PWSI and VDA, and they will be working closely over the next few months to ensure that there is a smooth transition.
Phan’s vast experience in both soccer and business will allow for a strong transition into his new role while providing opportunities for the programs to continue to move forward and build for the future of the club.
Phan currently serves as the Technical Director of PWSI and has coached at all levels within PWSI and VDA. He holds a USSF A License, USC Director of Coaching License, and has been ingrained in the soccer community within the region over the past few decades. He has a long history of developing players to play at the highest level of youth soccer and moving onto professional teams and collegiate programs.
“I am honored for the opportunity to continue to move PWSI and VDA forward and build for the future,” said Phan. “We have an amazing soccer community in Prince William County, with a unique soccer culture made up of amazing players and families. As a club, we will continue to build upon this foundation to make the experience at PWSI and VDA something that the players and families are proud to be a part of.”
“Mike Cullina and Matt Lacey are true leaders and trailblazers in the soccer community,” Phan continued. “I am thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Mike Cullina and look forward to seeing him continue to guide youth soccer as the CEO of US Club Soccer. I am excited to continue to work with Matt Lacey to make VDA a top club in the nation.”
