Starts New Job In December
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Brevard Community College has hired the first men’s soccer coach in school history.
The addition of Oliver Twelvetrees was announced by the school Tuesday.
Twelvetrees also will serve as BCC’s strength and conditioning coach.
BCC’s men’s soccer program begins play at the NJCAA’s Division I level next fall.
A native of Swansea City in Wales, Great Britain, Twelvetrees will join BCC in December once he completes his seventh season as the head coach of the men’s soccer program at Barton Community College in Great Bend, Kan.
“We are very excited to add Oliver to our staff as our new men’s soccer coach,” said BCC Athletic Director Jeff Carr. “He has had great success at Barton and we know he will have one of the top programs in the country here at BCC.
“He is an exceptional coach and a fantastic person. We are very fortunate to have him coming to Brevard. I can’t wait for him to come on board in December,” Carr said.
Twelvetrees said he is thrilled as well.
“I am excited to start something special at Brevard,” he said. “All the resources are there to make this program one of the best junior college men’s soccer programs in the nation. It is an honor to be selected as the first men’s soccer coach in Titans athletics history. I want to personally thank the Athletic Director Jeff Carr and President Dr. James H. Richey for putting faith in me to lead the program.
“It is my goal to run the program with a strong purpose and vision to develop, graduate and educate the best young soccer players in Florida,” Twelvetrees said. I will recruit the type of student-athletes that Brevard County can be proud of both on and off the pitch.”
