Welcome to Highland Soccer Systems; Central Vermont's elite solution to training of the soccer player in, or out, of a team setting.  We are the only soccer group in the area that is affiliated with no one team in particular.  We are completely dedicated to giving the game back to the kids while sharing expertise and providing opportunity for growth to all players and teams.  Our idea is to increase the understanding of soccer from an individualized perspective (both technical application and tactical understanding) thereby increasing the quality of soccer across the state, and furthering the enjoyment of the game for everyone. "Have fun, and guys? Entertain me…."

About Coach Haddox

head2 Highland Soccer Systems is directed by current State of Vermont Staff Coach, Don Haddox. After growing up in a soccer-rich environment and playing soccer for the now U.S. Developmental Academy, Internationals Soccer Club, Coach Haddox honed his skills at local powerhouse Hiram College winning 3 consecutive Conference Championships. Eventually captaining the squad and anchoring a defense that amassed a 24-2-1 conference record (with 36 overall wins) during that time, Coach Haddox garnered an All-Conference award and then continued to play in the semi-professional Lake Erie League after college.

Now, after having been involved in the sport for nearly 40 years, Coach Haddox holds National level coaching certification from the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), Advanced National level certification from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), the National Youth Diploma from world-renowned Coerver Training Systems and finally a Level 2 Goalkeeping Diploma from the NSCAA. He has led local high school teams to two State Championship appearances as well as three additional final four appearances in his time in Vermont. He is also a head coach in the Vermont Olympic Development Program (ODP) and a Senior Staff Coach with a local premier club. Joining him on staff, as needed in different camp settings, will be additional nationally licensed coaches, both male and female.
