Former Division II goalkeeper, Steven Rerick, joined the Carnegie Mellon University men's soccer staff as an assistant coach in the fall of 2022.
In his first season on the sidelines for the Tartans, Rerick mentored three rookie goalkeepers who earned seven shutouts and a goals-against average of 1.29 through 17 games.
Rerick came to Carnegie Mellon after four years coaching at his alma mater, Slippery Rock University. While at Slippery Rock, Rerick started 36 of 39 games over four years, won two PSAC Championships, and was recognized as a PSAC Scholar Athlete.
Rerick’s coaching philosophy is based on a holistic approach to development focusing on the five elements of goalkeeping: technical, tactical, physical, psychological, and social. Rerick’s trainings will have goalkeepers constantly make decisions through game-like training methodology to better prepare them for competition and help aide their development. Rerick holds a USSF D License as well as a United Soccer Coaches Advanced National Goalkeeper Diploma.
Rerick also serves as the Director of Goalkeeping for Steel City FC & Arsenal FC of PA where he has been for three years working with and developing some of the best goalkeepers in the Pittsburgh area.
