Aric Manning (a.k.a Manners) was born and raised in Roy, Utah where he first discovered his love for the game. After high school Aric went on to play at Columbia Christian College in Portland Oregon and then Weber State University in Ogden Utah where he helped the Wildcats win 3 National Championships in 4 years for the NSCAA club team.

In 1988, Aric was part of the Roy HIgh School soccer team that set the Guiness Book of World Records for the longest soccer game ever played at 75.5 hours of consecutive play.

Coach Manning is interested in developing the whole person which includes: skills relevant for winning soccer matches, a competitive spirit, solid team player and most importantly an overall quality person. Through his coaching career, Aric is most proud of the people that his players have become.

When Aric is not coaching you can find him in the kitchen cooking with his daughter or on the mountain trails running with his dog Gunnar.
