Billy McKenna comes to us with experience at most, if not all levels of the game from club to NTCO to the W. League. 

He played at a good level both in the U.K. and here in Canada and caught the coaching bug approximately thirty years ago and since then he has worked very successfully with both male and female athletes where he has won National Championships with both genders. Several past and present, again both male and female, National Team players came under Billy's tutiledge on their way through the development ranks. Many of these players were also, through hard work and discipline, ortunate to be awarded Academic/Athletic Scholarships in the U.S. College Systems.

He is presently the Head Coach/Technical Director of Stoney Creek Soccer Club where he is focussed on the implementation of the LTPD Program as well as working with the Winstars Academy.
