Waxhaw Soccer Club Family,
It is with a heavy heart that I leave Waxhaw. In the 4 ½ years that I have been at the club, I have developed some wonderful relationships with coaches and families alike.
When I took over the Academy program over three years ago, I set some goals that we wanted for the future of the club. The most important of these was to develop players and teams who took pride in being at Waxhaw Soccer Club and who wanted to continue their education as they graduated into our travel program.
I truly believe that I leave the club in much better place than when I first arrived, and would not think of leaving it any other way. The pieces are in place for Waxhaw to continue to have a bright future, and I urge our coaches and families to continue working hard and having fun.
I look forward to the new challenges that await me in South Carolina, but will always keep a part of the Waxhaw family in my heart. For those that ever need anything from me, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am excited to see all the future successes of Waxhaw as an observer, and hope that we can stay in touch, and meet again.
I wish you all the best and will truly miss the community and my players.
The only way to consider Faisal’s departure is bittersweet. When we talk about the development of the club, we always use the term “Waxhaw person” when discussing staff and development. We say things like “that’s a great soccer resume, but is he a ‘Waxhaw person’?” Our people, Waxhaw people, represent the currency of building honest relationships. We prioritize making a difference, and we’re motivated by pride and principle. Faisal is, through and through, a Waxhaw person. He cares more about our community of children and their families and friends above all else. What’s rare is when you find someone like that who has the knowledge and talent to use soccer to impact the lives of so many while building a strong reputation in this competitive soccer community. So, we know we are saying goodbye to one of Waxhaw’s greatest coaches of all time, but understand that the best way to take care of Faisal is to show our gratitude and wish him well in both his personal relationship-yes, Faisal is leaving for love-and his new career down in South Carolina. It’s been a true pleasure.
