Masters Degree in Coaching Education


My name is Gwyn Jones. I am originally from the UK but moved to the USA in 2015 to pursue a career in soccer coaching.

Since 2015, I have fulfilled various professional coaching roles from youth level through high school and college on the east coast.

Currently, alongside my role as Women’s Assistant Coach at Marymount University I am the Assistant Technical Director at Vienna Youth Soccer and a Staff Coach for the Maryland ODP program on the women’s side.

I have a Bachelors Degree in Sports Coaching as well as a Masters Degree in Coach Education. I am a UEFA B License holder as well as a USSF C License holder.

I have a tremendous passion for the sport of soccer but also for working with people and helping them achieve their goals. Ultimately, I coach to inspire others so that, through soccer, they can find their best selves.
