Coach Warren Smith is the Varsity Head Boys Soccer Coach and Middle School Girls JV Coach and has more than 30+ years of experience. He spent time coaching professionally with the Chattanooga Railroaders in the USISL. During his professional tenure, he coached alongside Angus McAlpine, the U.S. Men’s Olympic Coach in 1980. At the high school level, he coached several players who achieved All-American status as student-athletes. He also coached a male and female player who spent time with their respective U.S. national teams. He coached the Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Missouri while in St. Louis. Warren taught and coached at CCS from 1987 to 1990 and again from 1997 to 2002. In 2001, he played a key role in CCS winning a TSSAA State Championship alongside David Stanton.
He also currently holds a Premier Diploma awarded by the United Soccer Coaches Association of America. This has allowed him the opportunity to earn licenses from nationally recognized soccer coaches (e.g., Anson Dorrace, UNC; Tony DiCocco, USWNT) and goalkeeping credentials. His level of credentials are often reserved for DI college coaches or professional level coaches. As a result, he serves on a national academy support staff, traveling to do professional development for coaches.
Smith graduated from Covenant College where he played soccer and received numerous accolades, including All District, All Area, All South, and team captain; he was also ranked in the top 15 in the nation in goal scoring during his junior year in the NAIA.
