Head Soccer Coach - Boy/Girls

My name is Oran Smith and I’m the Head Coach of the Vanguard Classical School’s Varsity Girls and Boys Soccer Program. My soccer experience started when I was in high school as something I did I did to stay in shape in between football seasons in Katy, TX. As I grew up the game became more than just a hobby and a way to stay fit between football seasons. I developed a love for the game and everything soccer related including coaching, which started my journey working with players for the past 28 years.

My coaching career started in Round Rock, TX as a Head Coach of my first competitive team along with being a full time staff member as the Director of Girls Soccer for Round Rock Crossfire. I also coached High School Soccer for both the boys and girls at Round Rock High School. I later moved to Augusta, GA where I coached competitive soccer for a couple years. I then moved back to Katy, TX as a competitive coach for the Katy Lightning for quite a while. At last I found my way to Colorado where I have been coaching competitive soccer for the past 18 years.

I have had a lot of great experiences along the way, some of those included being awarded Coach of The Year, getting to coach ODP which is the Olympic Developmental Program for the USA, getting to the Semi-Finals of President’s Cup with both my CO Rapids High School age Boys and Girls & maybe the most awarding thing of all was helping so many young boys and girls reach their dream of playing in college. There is nothing more special than the feeling of knowing that you got to play a small part in another person life and watch them get to be rewarded for all their hard work. Even to this day it still makes me feel like a proud father when that happens.

I’m so excited to start my new and challenging journey here at Vanguard Classical School by not only getting to coach both the boys and girls Varsity Soccer Teams but also to help build the soccer program from the ground up.
