CAMAS, WA—Roland Minder still lives and breathes soccer.
But after 23 years of coaching boys and girls soccer teams at Camas High School, the 63-year-old feels the time is right to step back from the boys program and find the right person to lead the Papermakers into the future on the soccer pitch.
“We come into this world kicking and screaming, and then we make a lot of noise, and then we leave. Everything has it’s time and season,” Minder said. “When I was hired, I was given two things to do. One, bring discipline to the program. And number two, make the program competitive. I think both of those have been accomplished.
“So now, after 23 seasons, I think the program is in good shape,” he added. “We have the next generation that’s ready to carry the program on. It’s just the right time.”
