  • Matt Reny Coach

    Matt brings knowledge of the game of soccer not only on the pitch, but off of it. 



    After playing Varsity soccer in high school, Matt went on to focus solely on his academics as he moved to Columbus to attend the Ohio State University. During his junior and senior years, Matt joined the communications and public relations team at Columbus’ own Major League Soccer team, Columbus Crew SC. Being around the game at a professional level, although in the Front Office, allowed him to not only gain experience for his education and future, but to express his passion for the sport. One of his favorite experiences was interacting with coaches and players at training and matches while overseeing media sessions. 


    Matt has most recently coached two 2006 teams among others, competing in NWOYSL and Ohio North State League. He continues to grow and learn as he enters his fourth year of coaching in the area and is ecstatic to bring his knowledge and skill set on this new journey with NWO FCA.

  • Joe Montag Coach

    I grew up playing the beautiful game of soccer from 5 years old through my mid 20's playing for several large clubs in the Dayton & Cincinnati area as well as in High School. I began coaching soon after High School at the assistant level for the girls varsity program at my Alma Mater and also as a head coach for a local club. I have been involved with youth soccer in NW Ohio area since 2005 where I have coached with PSC, founded & served as president & coached several teams at various age groups ranging from U9 - U15 for The Edge SC through 2018. I have coached within Metro FC from 2018 -2019 and served as the Vice President on the NWOYSL board for 5 years during that time. From 2013 to current I have coach the boys HS varsity program at Eastwood Local Schools. In my 30+ years of soccer experience I have enjoyed working with kids of all age groups to help them achieve success athletically and to provide a quality of soccer knowledge and skill set for them to excel at any level. I have trained players privately from ages U11 through the college level to help them better reach their individual goals.
