Cavicchia Drops Interim Tag
The following post comes after the announcement of Coach Rob Caviccia having the “interim” tag removed and is now the new Seneca Sting Men’s Head Coach on April 28, 2023 https://www.senecasting.ca/varsity/News_Slider/2023-24/04282023_Cavicchia.
The Seneca Sting are pleased to announce that Rob Cavicchia has been named the Men’s Soccer head coach.
With the removal of the interim designation, Cavicchia will officially take the reigns of both the outdoor and indoor teams for the 2023-24 season.
Cavicchia was at the helm for the indoor season in 2023 which saw the Sting capture an OCAA silver medal, falling in extra time of the championship match. Prior to stepping into the head coach position, Cavicchia was an assistant coach with the team under head coach Patrice Gheisar.
Just days after the conclusion of the season, John Sharpe, Manager, Varsity and Operations knew he had seen enough to proceed with Cavicchia on a permanent basis.
“We are excited to remove the interim title. The team’s performance during the indoor season gave us the confidence that Rob is the right fit to lead the team moving forward. We are confident Rob will continue to drive the program forward and that the team will continue to be successful both in the classroom and on the pitch.”
Familiar with the lead position at a CCAA institution, Cavicchia was previously the head coach of the women’s and men’s soccer teams at Medicine Hat College. In addition to Cavicchia’s coaching duties with the Rattlers, Cavicchia was also the Executive Director of the Medicine Hat Soccer Association.
A National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Level 2 certified coach and currently working towards a National B coaching license, Cavicchia began his coaching career at the club level with the York Jets SC. Cavicchia entered the collegiate ranks as an assistant coach at Niagara University (NCAA Division 1).
“Rob brings both familiarity (with Seneca) and extensive experience at the collegiate level. Rob’s experience as both a student-athlete and coach in the post-secondary environment will help in connecting with the players,” said Sharpe.
Tryouts for the Men’s Soccer team will be the first week of September.
