Dave is currently the girls head coach at Greenwich Country Day School.
Shoreline FC is a premier soccer club based out of Greenwich, CT, founded and directed by Danny Simpson. After spending over 20 years coaching youth soccer in the US and UK, Danny opened Shoreline in 2012. Since then, Shoreline has had many team successes including 8-state titles, one national title, and has grown to over 17 teams with 183 title wins. Over the years, Danny has nurtured many players from youth through high school to help get recruited to play soccer collegiately. He won 4-FCIAC titles with Greenwich High School and is currently the boys head coach at Brunswick.
“We are all incredibly excited to be coaching and working alongside Danny. We believe he will be an incredible asset for our athletes,” stated David Flower, Director of Coaching and now Co-Director of CPSSC. “Chelsea Piers Soccer Club desires and deserves the best competitive level and by combining our efforts with Shoreline FC we believe we will greatly increase the opportunities for every one of the players and teams within our clubs.”
