Steve Adlard Memorial Showcase (SAMS)

In honor of Steve Adlard, Idaho Inferno Soccer Club is proud to present the inaugural Steve Adlard Memorial Showcase. Steve Adlard served as the Director of Coaching for Idaho Youth Soccer Association from 2005 to 2015. His impact to soccer in Idaho and beyond was extraordinary and he will be forever cherished.

Steve played professionally in England with Nottingham Forrest and Lincoln City before moving to the United States to begin his coaching career. He coached at the University of Evansville, Davis and Elkins, UNC-Asheville, and Marquette University. Additionally, Steve was a national instructor for the United States Soccer Federation and United Soccer Coaches Association as well as the Region IV Chairman.

Steve passed away on September 18, 2018 to cancer.  Steve is survived by his wife Shelly, his daughter Susan, his son Andy, and his granddaughter Mae. 

The Steve Adlard Memorial Showcase logo was inspired from a photograph of Steve diving to stop a goal.
