    Bill Goc brings over twenty years of coaching and managing to the NY Stingers organization. 

    Coach Goc gathered his first head coaching experience with four years at the helm of the now NY Diamond Girls where he had the privilege of seeing numerous young ladies go on to play collegiate softball.  After graduating from Cazenovia College in 2002, where he played four years of collegiate baseball, he was named head softball coach and coordinator of athletic facilities at Hilbert College.  By the end of his four years, he exited having the highest winning percentage and the program’s single season win record which stood for fifteen years.  Taking time to focus on family, Coach Goc returned to coaching Medaille College softball as an assistant in 2010 where they set the single season win record and the program’s only trip to the AMCC finals.  Focus shifted from softball to baseball when he was asked to join the coaching staff at his alma mater Bishop Timon-St. Jude High School (’98).  Spending five years in the program led to six more seasons coaching with South Buffalo Pride and West Seneca Warriors travel teams.  Bill and his wife Melissa reside in West Seneca, NY with their two sons who are both players in the NY Stingers organization.
