Avon High School Hires Jude Johannson to Coach Girls Soccer

Jude Johannson

Avon, Ind. – The Avon High School (AHS) Athletic Department has hired Jude Johannson as varsity Girls Soccer Head Coach. His hiring follows a thorough selection process that involved administrators, educators, and parents. His demonstrated leadership and track record of success distinguished him from a crowded and competitive group of candidates.

“I’m excited to be the next girls Head Girls Soccer Coach at Avon High School,” says Johannson, who was the AHS Boys Varsity Assistant Coach in 2018. “I love to serve. I’ve been blessed with gifts and talents to help pour into people, as it relates to soccer, so when I saw an opportunity to help and get involved, I jumped at the opportunity.” Johannson was the Taylor University Men’s Soccer Assistant Coach from 2019-2022 and, most recently, was the Carmel FC Senior Team Director and Club Administrator. Johannson holds his National Diploma from the NSCAA, his USSF “D” License, and Football Association of Wales “C” Certificate. He resides in Danville with his wife, Sarah, and their daughter.

“We could not be happier with the hiring of Jude Johannson as our next Girls Soccer Coach,” says Corporation Athletic Director Jason Young. “We feel that he is absolutely the best person to lead our program. He shares a deep commitment to our vision for Avon Athletics, and we believe that he is the perfect Coach to lead our tradition-rich program into an exciting future.” Citing the rich history of the girls soccer program at AHS, Young notes, “Coach Johannson and his staff have big shoes to fill, but we feel the future is bright with this group of athletes and this coaching staff.”

Coach Johannson replaces Eric Nance, the winningest head coach in AHS girls soccer history. Coach Nance recorded 154 wins during his outstanding 14-year career. Coach Nance led the Orioles to multiple Sectional and Regional Championships along with the 2013 State Championship.

Johannson believes success on the field carries over into the classroom and beyond. In a letter to parents, he writes, “As I am sure you are aware, athletics provides an entirely different education than the classroom. Both are very important, but playing soccer here at Avon will give your daughter the ability and opportunity to grow as a person and player.”

Johannson begins his coaching role immediately.
