SEAN DATSON
GENERAL MANAGER OF TOCA NASHVILLE-FRANKLIN

Sean Datson is the general manager (GM) of TOCA Nashville-Franklin. A native of Newmarket, England, Sean is a life-long student, teacher, and fan of the game of football (as a Brit, Sean didn’t call football “soccer” until he came to the United States). He earned his BA with honors in sports development from Leeds Beckett University in England and played semi-professionally before concentrating on coaching. Sean has many specialized coaching qualifications, including his USSF “C” license, and his English FA Level 2 license.

Sean moved to the U.S. in 2010 and spent a decade coaching. In 2020, Sean began his TOCA journey, first as the GM of the original TOCA location in the LA Galaxy Soccer Center in Torrance, CA and then as the GM of TOCA Costa Mesa, which also houses TOCA’s corporate headquarters. After successfully navigating the changing business landscape during the Covid pandemic at both centers, Sean was asked to lead the exciting growth of a new TOCA location: TOCA Nashville, located in Franklin, TN!
