Jack McCabe is our first Director of Recreational Soccer. 

Jack is originally from Long Island, NY. As a youth, he played for LIJSL Select Program and Rockville Centre Soccer Club. In High School, he earned All NY State Honors. In the 1995, Jack went on to play collegiately for the SUNY Albany Great Danes where he was a 3-year starter at mid field.

After moving to Charlotte for a position with Wells Fargo Bank in 2008, he began coaching his 2 oldest daughters, Madelyn and Monica, soccer teams for 5 years with the Carolina Rapids Soccer Club in the Fall and Spring. Jack also coached in the winter with Strikers Soccer. Jack’s youngest daughter, Mary-Kate, currently plays ECNL with the Charlotte Independence.

If he isn’t watching/ coaching soccer, you can find him some Sunday nights out on the pitch still playing. Although Jack still might have some skill left, the speed and stamina have decreased drastically!!!

In 1989, Don moved to Charlotte and has since been part of the Charlotte soccer community for over twenty-five years. With three daughters growing up in soccer, Don moved to the girls' game and started coaching them at MARA. While at MARA, he was part of a group of coaches that brought Challenge and Classic Girls soccer to Charlotte.

volunteer coaches

New for 2024, if you are planning to register as a volunteer coach, please note that you will no longer register within the player registration. ALL WAA Coaches must complete the WAA Coach & Volunteer Application to be considered for coaching within WAA. 

Please note that if you have coached in other sports this past fall or this winter, you have already completed this form and just need to update it for Soccer as well. WXW Soccer Club Coaches also have to complete the NCYSA Background Check & SafeSport Training and it is MANDATORY. If you are returning from the Fall, you will not be required to complete the training or check.  

Links to the WAA Coach & Volunteer Application is included in the "Thank You" email sent after registering your player. No need to worry! It's also linked right below.
