Assistant Director of Coaching/Operations Manager

Pearce joined Lazers as a volunteer in the fall of 2014 before being brought on full time in the fall of 2015. Pearce’s role at the club includes coaching the U19 Boys teams, overseeing the training of U16 Boys teams, coordinating all communications internally and externally, managing and operating the Lazers TOPSoccer program and overseeing U8-U12 Boys teams.

After a playing career in England was ended by a string of injuries at the youth level, Pearce endeavored to research and experience coaching techniques, tactics and theory across multiple different sports. The opportunity to do this was offered while studying for a Master’s Degree at the University of Georgia.

Pearce worked closely with the Bulldogs coaching staff for multiple sports including football, women’s basketball and baseball. He was also an integral part of the Georgia women’s soccer programs statistics and information operation, working game day statistics and meeting weekly with head coach Steve Holeman and assistant coach Dan Blank to discuss the coming fixtures.

While at the University of Georgia, Pearce also worked closely with Cedar Shoals and Clarke Central football programs respectively, serving as spring practice kicking instructor for both programs one year apart.

After leaving Athens, Pearce became increasingly familiar with the Coweta County athletic landscape, while beginning to volunteer with the Lazers organization. Pearce also covered high school soccer in Coweta County for the Newnan Times-Herald. This opportunity provided Pearce the time to spend time becoming increasingly knowledgeable about the style, level and tempo of both public and private high school soccer in the area.

During his competitive playing career, Pearce was a part of multiple youth programs in the Glossop, Derbyshire area. These included Glossop North End Juniors, Glossopdale Community College and the Marple Sixth Form College Football Excellence program.

Pearce has coached organized soccer since 2014. This time has included coaching the Lazers U19 boys team every season since spring 2015.. This has been done in conjunction with coaching multiple teams in different age groups ranging from U8 through U14.

Away from the soccer field, Pearce is an avid Manchester City, Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldogs fan. Also a below average fantasy baseball player, sports form an important part of Pearce’s social and family life much to the frustration of his wife Khira.

Pearce resides in Newnan with his wife Khira and two dogs Kiwi and Beau.
