Who is this John Barata?
Approximately ten years ago Easton Soccer hired John Barata as our Director of Coaching. He provides an invaluable amount of professionalism to a town soccer program, which many towns do not have. As director of coaching, he provides training to players and coaching, professional assistance with the Easton Soccer board, and organizes all or our training programs. He is an invaluable resource, which allows us to provide comprehensive and professional programs.
John graduated from Assumption College in Worcester, MA where he was the Captain of the Men's Soccer Team from 1997-1999. He was an All-New England All-Star selection in 1999 and was a three time member of the NE-10 All-Conference Team. John received the highest athletic accolade from the college -- The Premier Male Senior Student-Athlete Award -- as well as defensive, offensive, and most valuable player of the year awards. In 2009 he was inducted into the Immaculate High School “Hall of Fame” Class of 2009 and the Assumption College 2011.
John currently holds the USSF "A" License, the NSCAA Premier Diploma, the USYS National License.
