New Directors

Excited to announce new club directors Shaun Tsakiris and Shawn Blakeman!

We are pleased to announce that Shaun Tsakiris and Shawn Blakeman have joined Los Gatos United as the new directors of our soccer club. Both Shaun and Shawn bring a wealth of knowledge and experience as ex-professional players and top coaches. 

For the last four years, Tsakiris has been the head coach of the United States Men’s National Team (U16 and U17), including leading the side to an impressive showing at the U17 FIFA World Cup. Tsakiris has been recognized as one of the “top 10 best young coaches in America.” 

After a professional career in Germany and the United States, Blakeman comes to LGUSL from his position as Technical Director of Sacramento United Soccer Club. Under Shawn’s leadership, the club has become a top destination for youth soccer in central California. He is also a founder of the NorCal Premier Soccer League, one of the most successful youth soccer organizations in America.

Longtime friends, both coaches hail from the Los Gatos/Saratoga area and are eager to bring their extensive worldwide soccer experience back home.

Please join us in welcoming them to our soccer community!
