Beaton Named Interim Head Coach for the Women's Soccer Program

JAMESTOWN – Tyler Beaton has been appointed as the interim head coach of the Jamestown Community College women’s soccer team.


“This is a huge honor,” said Beaton. “This was not something I was not expecting to happen but it was a natural fit and good timing for JCC and myself.”


“Tyler spent last season as an assistant with the men’s soccer program last season,” said athletic director George Sisson. “He is familiar with JCC athletics and is a great asset to the department. He will bring a lot of energy to the team and is excited for the opportunity. Tyler is looking forward to developing the program.”


Beaton, a native of Bemus Point, comes over to the women’s soccer team after serving a member on the men’ soccer team coaching staff for the past three seasons. During his first two years with the men’s soccer team, Beaton worked strictly with the goalkeepers. Last season, Beaton grew more into his role and would help game plan for their opponents.


Beaton helped coach the Jayhawks to a 12-6-3 record, the best since the 2013 season when the team had 10 wins. Beaton also was an integral part of sculpting Jacob Moore ’20 into a second team All-WNYAC goalkeeper.


Prior to his time with the JCC men’s soccer program, Beaton was a member of the Baldwin Wallace University men’s soccer team where he played goalkeeper for the Yellow Jackets. While at Baldwin Wallace, Beaton was also a member of the men’s tennis where he helped the team earn regular and tournament titles in the Ohio Athletic Conference as well as leading them to a berth into the 2013 NCAA Division III National Tournament.


Beaton graduated from Baldwin Wallace University in the spring of 2013 with a degree in Health Promotions and Physical Education.


While in high school, Beaton was a four-year member of the varsity boys’ soccer team at Maple Grove Senior High. During the 2007-08 season, Beaton was named All-Conference while also earning the Goalkeeper of the Year award by the Post-Journal.


With the fall season cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Beaton knows that there are challenges ahead during the upcoming season.


“This is an interesting time that we are experiencing and we need to make sure that we are keeping everyone focused,” said Beaton. “We need to get the returners to get a grasp for the system that will be installed so we have the veteran leadership on the field in practice as well as games.”


Beaton is looking to make JCC soccer a place that student-athletes want to come and thrive on and off the field.


“We want JCC to be the number one choice for recruits,” Beaton added. “We need to build a program that will give our student-athletes a chance to develop and grow as players.”
