CAMP DIRECTOR SETH ROLAND

In its 22nd year at FDU, the Seth Roland Soccer Camp is directed by FDU Head Coach Seth Roland. 


A collegiate soccer coach for 36 years, Roland both played for and then coached the USA Maccabiah Soccer Team in 7 World Games in Israel during the 1977-2009 time frame winning Silver and Bronze Medals.


Roland has restored the glory days of Fairleigh Dickinson soccer, vaulting the program into sustained national prominence and earning a reputation as a plucky giant-killer.

During his 21-year tenure, Roland has also secured a place in Knights' history as the program's winningest coach ever, despite going out of his way each year to schedule the toughest possible opponents around the country.

In 2012, the Knights advanced to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, capturing the program's eighth Northeast Conference championship, while knocking off No. 18 St. John's and No. 8 overall seed Saint Louis, both storied programs. The Cinderella run ended with a thrilling 1-0 overtime loss at defending national champion North Carolina in a contest that easily could have gone either way.

The 2012 postseason run was FDU's sixth NCAA Tournament appearance under Roland. Along the way, Roland surpassed FDU Soccer's previous career win total, leading FDU to 154 victories during his time in Teaneck. The program's march back to national prestige began in 2001, when the Knights won the NEC championship and steamrolled three nationally-ranked rivals to reach the Elite Eight. 


Roland has guided the program to 15 NEC Tournament semifinal appearances. Under his tutelage, the Knights clinched four-straight NEC tournament championships (2000-03) as well as two others in 2008 and 2012. He has guided the Knights to six NEC championships and four NEC regular season titles.
