Guidance for Pro Soccer Development

Contact Information.

Samson’s coaching goal is for players to play well. Coach Siasia proved himself well–qualified to develop players at all levels. Samson has served as head coach for teams from Under-10 (U10) to the National Team. His Olympics teams have always been serious contenders, winning silver and bronze. His U20 Nigerian squad played brilliantly throughout the 2005 World Youth Championship, earning a tie with former champions Brazil and a spot in the final versus Argentina. He is proud to have served as a head coach with Nigeria’s National Team, Olympic (U-23), and U-20 teams. He hopes for future coaching and training appointments. As a player, he earned top international recognition as a player both professionally and on his national team.

Younger youth teams U-10 to U-12 earned local, state, regional, and national recognition. These youth teams have won tournaments in the southeastern USA, such as the Chevy Cup, Red Star Cup (Columbus, GA), Concorde Cup and were finalists in the State Championship, the Paramount-Carowinds Charlotte Invitational, and the A division of the TYSA Challenge Cup. He trained one team from recreational players to top select soccer, state final in Georgia.
