Meet the UK Elite Team Behind the Team

There are countless individuals who have helped UK Elite Soccer succeed over 25 years whether they are coaches on the field or our incredible support staff off the field. While our customers typically interact with UK Elite staff on the pitch, our behind-the-scenes team is an integral part of the UK Elite family that deserves just as much praise.

“UK Elite is lucky to have such a talented, dedicated and professional team supporting our regions. They truly mirror our on field excellence with an equally excellent customer experience,” UK Elite CEO Mick Smoothey said. “We wanted to take this opportunity to recognize their immense contribution as we gear up for another busy summer camp season!”

From our customer service team busily working the phones and email communicating directly with current and potential UK Elite customers, to our IT team making sure our website, internal database and other technologies are running smoothly, to our financial team and directors, every person plays a valuable role.

Beth Donowick has been with UK Elite for eight years and is part of the Financial Team. She loves how the office staff feels like a family and works together to achieve success.

“One of the things that makes UK Elite a great place to work is the camaraderie among the staff and the laid back atmosphere,” Donowick said. “Getting through busy times is a lot easier when there is laughter in the office which I really appreciate! Even if it is “English” humor!”

Thanks to our tremendous staff members working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure UK Elite’s success. We couldn’t have made it to our 25th anniversary without you!
