Lady Captains' Soccer Camps
Camp Director / Head Coach Dan Weiler
The sixth coach in CNU women's soccer history, Dan Weiler enters his third year at the helm with a tremendous start to his coaching career in Newport News. In just two seasons, Weiler has helped guide CNU to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances with a pair of regular season conference championships in the books.
Over the course of his first two seasons, the Captains have played dominant soccer against the Capital Athletic Conference, posting an overall conference record of 15-1-1. In 2013, CNU posted a 14-4-2 overall mark, captured the top seed in the CAC Tournament and earned Weiler his first CAC Coach of the Year honor. In 2014, he backed up that season with a 12-4-4 overall record and an unbeaten conference season at 8-0-1, en route to a second straight at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament.
Leading CNU back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010, Weiler coached the CAC Player and Rookie of the Year in back-to-back seasons and also saw two players in both 2013 and 2014 earn NSCAA All-Region honors.
Prior to arriving at CNU, Weiler spent the previous 11 years building Concordia College (Minn.) into a regional power- house and consistent national threat.
A two-time National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Region Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2012, Weiler guided Concordia to the NCAA Tournament in six of his final seven seasons with the program, including three trips to the Sweet 16.
While at the helm of the Cobbers, he compiled an impressive record of 144-58-24 and was named the Conference Coach of the Year on four occasions. During that time, he coached players to 30 NSCAA All-Region honors and five All-American nods. Off the field, his team earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award every year. He also coached 37 Academic All-Conference players, four Scholar All-Americans, and two ESPN Academic All-Americans.
His 14-year coaching résumé at Concordia includes two seasons as an Associate Coach for both the men’s and women’s teams before taking over as the head coach for the women’s team in 2001. For a span of five seasons (2007-11), Weiler also took the reins of the men’s team, turning around a 3-win squad in 2007 to a 13-win program in 2010.
Weiler was also the head girls’ soccer coach at Fargo South High School from 1999-2006, guiding the Bruins to a state championship in 1999. He earned North Dakota Coach of the Year honors in 1999, and in 2002, he was named a finalist for the national girls’ high school coach of the year honor.
Weiler holds a Brazilian (BRUSA) “A” coaching license and a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) “B” license.
A Fargo, N.D. native, Weiler graduated Magna Cum Laude from Moorhead State University in 1996. He and his wife Kilee Kadrie-Weiler currently reside in Newport News, Va.
