All Towers head coaches will be back in 2017. Yet four of five Towers teams will have new head coaches. The coaching carrousel has turned and Peter Herbild is the only head coach to be back with the same squad in 2017.

The senior team staff will work hard In the off season in order to set the framework for the 2017 season and much more will be revealed in due time. One thing we do know already is that defensive coordinator Victor Andersen will be back. And not only will he again run our defense; Victor has also been named assistant head coach.

All youth head coaches have taken over new teams in 2017. The reason is simple – the bond each coach and his assistants have with their players is one we don’t want to break. Therefore, since a significant number of players from each youth team graduates to an older team, their coaches advance with them.

Simon Sonnesen, the former U19 head coach, reached the end of the line as far as youth teams go and thus he will coach the youngest Towers in 2017 as the U12 and U14 head coach.

This means that Tobias Trige will coach the U16 team and Kasper Skyum will be the front man for the U19 team.

Each coach will be surrounded by the same assistants as in 2016. Tobias Trige will bring Thomas ‘Post’ Jakobsen and Lars Cedervall with him as well as a whopping 20 players advancing to the U16 squad. Trige said, “We look forward to continuing to follow the football development of these boys and also the great camaraderie they have built.” Trige is looking for additional coaches for the U16 team in order to reach the team’s goal of having a coach pr. seven players.

Coach Skyum will also field a staff that is made up of a mix of familiar and new faces. “It will be a crew that knows what it takes to improve and not just the coaches, but medics and team managers as well”, Skyum explains and adds “Our players can expect innovative and unusual practices.”

The Towers wish our fans a happy off-season, but assure you that there is nothing off about our preparations for the 2017 season.

U19 modtager Nordea Fondens udendørspris

Copenhagen Towers U19 har modtaget Nordea Fondens udendørspris 2015!

“Udover at I har vundet Junior Bowl, har flere af jeres spillere og trænere deltaget på U17- og U19-landsholdet, hvor U19-holdet vandt VM-bronze tidligere i år. I er samtidig en klub i stor vækst med mange nye medlemslicenser, og som I ved, er det med til at øge konkurrencen og gøre jer endnu skarpere, så I kan genvinde Junior Bowl igen til næste år”.

Sonnesen fortsat HC for Towers U19

Simon Sonnesen vil i 2016 fortsat være Head Coach for Copenhagen Towers JNL-hold.

Simon Sonnesen var i 2015 Head Coach for det Towers JNL-hold, der vandt Danmarksmesterskabet med en sejr i Junior Bowl på 20-6 over Herlev Rebels.

Simon havde i 2014 været head coach for Towers U16-hold og da han fik muligheden for at rykke med sine drenge op i 2015, sprang han til. Som head coach for U19-holdet har Simon samlet en flok unge mænd og lært dem at spille som et hold. Det var især tydeligt i Junior Bowl. Her var der brug for alles bidrag, for at få sejren i hus imod en dygtigt modstander.

Simon arbejdede utrætteligt hele 2015 med at udvikle både trænerstab, support og selve holdet. Coach Sonne blev kåret som årets træner i Copenhagen Towers i 2015 og han er allerede godt igang med at samle en dygtig trænerstab til 2016 sæsonen. Udover sin trænergerning i Towers er Simon også træner på det danske U17-landshold og han studerer til hverdag til lærer.

Det er en stor glæde for Copenhagen Towers, at Coach Sonnesen fortsætte sit enorme arbejde i klubben.
