Highline High School (HHS) is excited to announce Eduardo Millan, HHS Head Boys Soccer Coach, has earned a U.S. Soccer National C Coaching License. To earn this distinction, Millan has demonstrated the highest level of knowledge and expertise in the field of coaching soccer.
The voluntary certification process included a seven-day course, eight-week development period where Millan implemented course concepts at HHS, and three-day, rigorous and comprehensive assessment and examination.
“Student-athletes look to their coaches as mentors and lean on them to reach their maximum potential. That means player development goes hand-in-hand with coaching development,” said Millan. “For me, continuing my education means improving my skills, learning new specializations, and a chance to raise the bar higher for the program and everyone involved. I hope to serve as a motivation and role model for every student-athlete about the importance of education and the need to always improve.”
Millan has served as the head soccer coach at HHS for six years. He also coaches the men’s soccer team at Bellevue College. Millan played for Evergreen State College and the Seattle Wolves.
“I am really proud of Eduardo for seeing the importance of improving himself as a coach for the betterment of our student-athletes,” said HHS Athletic Director Lori Box. “He continually strives to improve the soccer experience for our athletes.”
Millan is one of an elite group of interscholastic soccer coaches nationwide to attain this level of professionalism.
The course was paid for by the HHS Booster Club.
