His responsibilities here included conducting weekly training sessions and managing matches that were in-state and at Region 1 ID Camp. During this program, he trained future United States National Team member Christie Welsh, who is also the current University of Oregon assistant coach.

The late 1990s and early 2000s were busy years for Jon. In 1998, he started working at New York University as the head women’s soccer coach. He was instrumental in the development of the team’s sports prowess and led a dramatic improvement to NYU’s soccer program.

In 2002, the team also won the UAA Championship and reached the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament.

Jon left New York University in 2003 to pursue other ventures and to lend his talents elsewhere. In 2004, he started working at St. Edward’s University, located in Austin, Texas. Once again assuming the role of head women’s soccer coach, he helped this school’s team make major strides in the league.

Once again, he was responsible for leading a dramatic improvement to the school’s athletic team.

He coached Southern Oregon University’s women’s soccer to conference semifinals four times in five seasons. The teams that he coached from 2010 to 2013 were consistently earning votes in the National Top 25 poll. Besides focusing on athletics, he enforced the importance of academics as well.

With his commitment and unique style of coaching and recruitment, he believes that he can bring virtually any college soccer team to success.

He thinks that he can bring attributes to the table that other coaches seem to overlook. One aspect that he finds most important is community outreach, which is why he regularly encouraged his athletes to give back to society. In the past, Jon and his team have gotten involved with various organizations dedicated to helping the community. They were large contributors to Relay for Life and also assisted with camp visits.

Clement and his players worked at a youth camp to assist young players with their soccer skills. The team members were providing their insight on the sport so that the youths could learn from experienced players. Not only did this benefit the camp-goers, but his players were also learning important skills to utilize in life. They were developing their leadership skills so that they could eventually lead teams of their own as coaches or captains.

Jon of Medford Oregon believes that this community outreach program was extremely beneficial to his team’s success, and he hopes to implement similar strategies in the future. Colleges that want to see improvement in their sports teams should consider Jon Clement for a coaching position since he is able to bring extensive experience and unique insight to the role.
