Like most about soccer: The technical and tactical aspect of the game, when they come together it truly is “the beautiful game”. The relationships made as a player, referee, and coach will be with me forever. I’ve been participating in soccer for many years and looking forward to many more years enjoying the game I love.
Favorite Soccer Player: Philip Lahm & Bastian Schweinsteiger
Coaching Philosophy: We play a game to have fun; as a youth coach the kids should have fun during training and matches. Focus is on developing the proper foundation and improve upon the players technical abilities. Keep the game simple and they will learn to appreciate and love “the beautiful game”.
