As the All-Time winningest coach in the history of Arizona Western Soccer, Kenny Dale has transformed the Matador soccer program into a pinnacle of success.
2019 marks the 15th season under Dale’s guidance and the Matadors have already reached the post-season thirteen times, including eleven consecutive appearances.
Under Dale, the Matadors secured their first Region I Championship in 2010 with a win over conference foe Pima, while also taking in the program’s first ACCAC title. Two years later, in 2012, the Matadors set a new mark for wins in a season with 19 in order to help earn ACCAC Coach of the Year honors for Dale.
Since taking the reins of Arizona Western Soccer in 2005, Kenny Dale has continued to push the Matadors to new heights. The program’s first conference title under Dale arrived in 2010 and the Mats earned the Region I Championship that season by defeated Pima.
In 2015, the Matador’s 17 wins included a 12-game winning streak and a 15-game unbeaten streak to secure a share of the ACCAC title.
Dale has also been a Pioneer at Arizona Western, launching the AWC Women’s Soccer in 2013 while maintaining successful leadership of the Men's Soccer team as its head coach. He helped lead the Lady Mats to the playoffs for two straight seasons while still extending the Men's tradition of winning and reaching the post-season. Dale has worked with college-level soccer athletes every season since 1988, and is now in his third decade of college head coaching experience.
Dale earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Master of Arts in History from the University of Arizona. He also holds a USSF ‘A’ license, NSCAA Premier Diplomas from Brazil and Germany and completed the NSCAA Master Coach Program in 2010.
