The brothers bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience, each with 25 years coaching and as founders of Etienne Soccer Schools and Epic Sporting Stars FC. Within the club they will be tasked with developing the technical ability of each player.
Jeff Zaun, Technical Director for TSF Academy commented, “We’re delighted to welcome the Etienne’s to the club. Their background makes them ideal candidates for the level of coach we want at this club. Moving in to the new season, we have a great deal of confidence that the information any player pulling on a TSF jersey will receive is of the highest order.”
Both played professionally, enjoying ten years in the professional game, splitting time between the Richmond Kickers and Long Island Rough Riders under the USL banner while representing the Haitian National Team in the Gold Cup and World Cup Qualifying.
“We are excited to begin this new chapter of player development with TSF Academy. This is a well-established and nationally recognized organization with a strong track record of developing players and showcasing competitive teams at every level. We’re excited to be a part of the TSF family, and we’re looking forward to working with players looking to excel in the beautiful game.”
If the name seems familiar, it may be through Derrick’s son, Derrick Etienne Jr. who represents the New York Red Bulls first team, scoring the winner to earn the club its third MLS Supporter’s Shield.
