Academy Director, Seleshi Sahle
Seleshi was born and raised in Ethiopa. After serving as a pilot in the Ethiopian Air Force, Seleshi moved to the United States and eventually found himself in Chico.
He played soccer for CSU, Chico from 1969 – 1972. After graduating from Chico State in 1974, Seleshi became a staple in the local soccer community and has been teaching the beautiful game to local kids for over 30 years. He was also on the coaching staff for the Chico Rooks, a pro development team Chico had for many years.
We are excited for Seleshi’s knowledge, passion and experience to help guide the inception of our club’s academy. Please join us in welcoming Seleshi to our Butte United family.
