Hamilton native Carmine Lancia is the new head coach of the Mohawk men’s soccer team.
The Stoney Creek resident replaces Richard Bennett, who retired after 17 years in the position.
Lancia, a former Mohawk player, holds a CSA National B License. He is currently is the Technical Director of the Hamilton and District Soccer Association and Technical Director for Grassroots Soccer Hamilton.
He currently is working with the Toronto Football Club Academy as an Alternate Assistant Coach and with the TFC Juniors as a grassroots coach.
Lancia spent over 10 years at Saltfleet Stoney Creek SC, coaching one of the province’s top girls’ teams in 2001.
He brings a multitude of experience, both as a player and coach. He’s enjoyed success at the club and high school levels, winning the Ontario Cup, the Ontario Summer Games, league and city championships and making multiple OFSAA appearances.
Lancia is looking forward to this new challenge in OCAA soccer. “I hope to create an environment for each student athlete to have a great experience while playing soccer for Mohawk,” he said.
