Camp Director

Casey Moore

Casey Moore is currently the all-time wins leader at Alvernia University for men’s soccer and he has the highest winning percentage in program history.  He has been a part of Alvernia University’s coaching staff since the 2004 season.  Serving as an assistant from 2004 – 2007, Moore has been at the helm of the Crusader soccer program since 2008.  ...

Read Full Bio

Last season, the Crusaders captured the ECAC South Championship for the 2nd time in 4 years.  The Crusaders knocked off the #1, #2, and #3 seeds in the ECAC tournament to win the title.  Goalkeeper, Zach Rider, was named the ECAC MVP.  In 2012, Moore helped lead the Crusaders to their first post-season championship in school history.  The Crusaders won the ECAC South Championship, averaging 2.67 goals per game throughout the tournament.  Kyle Martyn was named ECAC MVP after scoring the game winning goal in the championship game on a free kick in double overtime.  In 2011, Moore and the Crusaders had a banner year breaking a ton of school records throughout the season.  That year Moore was named Commonwealth Coach of the Year and senior forward, Eric Franks was named Commonwealth Player of the Year. 
 
Moore has coached many NSCAA Regional All-Americans and produced many All Conference selections throughout his coaching tenure at Alvernia. While individual awards don’t really concern Moore, player development has been a key component to the team success at Alvernia.  The focus for his program is centered on family and relationships.  The Crusaders seek to strengthen bonds and relationships between themselves on a daily basis.  The brotherhood between players is something that will last forever.  Winning is certainly a goal within the program, but it isn’t the ultimate purpose that drives the team to success.  Winning becomes a byproduct of the actions and decisions of the team. 
 
Academics have become a big priority under Moore’s tenure.  The Crusader’s soccer program has posted the highest team GPA out of all the male sports program at Alvernia University for the past 3 years.  The soccer program has also been honored with 2 MAC Scholar athletes in the past 4 years and 3 NSCAA Scholar All Americans.  Kyle Martyn was recognized by the conference for both his academic and athletic abilities by being named the MAC Scholar athlete, NSCAA Regional All American, and All Commonwealth. He also scored the game winning goal in overtime to bring Alvernia their first ever post-season title, earning ECAC MVP honors.  In 2014, senior Josh Wollaston earned men's soccer's second MAC Scholar Athlete Award.  Josh was also named All Commonwealth for his performances throughout the season. 
 
Moore was a two-sport standout at Elizabethtown where he was captain of both the soccer and swimming programs.  In soccer, Moore was a 4-year starter for the Blue Jays, team captain, an All-Commonwealth selection, and NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional All American midfielder.  Moore was also an All American swimmer for the Blue Jays finishing 10th in the NCAA in the 200 Freestyle.  He was twice the receipt of the David B. Eavenson award, which is awarded to the Most Outstanding Swimmer in the MAC Conference. He was recently named to the MAC 100 All-Century Team for his swimming accolades.
 
At Wilson High School, Moore was a 1999 District III Champion, 3x All Division player, 2x All County midfielder, and a team captain for the Bulldogs.  He was also a 4x District Champion, 3x All-American, and team captain for the Bulldogs swim team.
 
Moore holds USSF and NSCAA coaching licenses.  He currently serves as the Director of Soccer Operations at Alvernia University.  He and Jenna live in the Exeter School District with their newborn son, Carter.

At Alvernia we have a tradition of excellent goalkeepers.  Goalkeepers are provided a balance of individual instruction, functional group training, and pressure situation training that ensures every goalkeeper receives professional attention aimed at maximizing his/her experience. Goalkeepers train as a group throughout the morning and afternoon and join their assigned team in the evenings.
