“My number one priority is my player’s safety and well being. I strive to create an environment that facilitates learning and enjoyment for young soccer players. I believe coaches are measured by the players they developed and with that in mind I believe the game is the best teacher, so it is my role as the coach to create curriculums that are age/skill appropriate which will allow players to develop to their full potential”.
