More About Coach Brittany

I've been a soccer player my entire life, starting at 6, continuing through high school, college and at the professional level. I started coaching young goalkeepers when I was in high school and still continue coaching Albertson Fury high school- aged goalies. I started all 4 years at Syracuse University and played professionally both in Sweden and in Kansas City. I have a passion for teaching others technique that I have learned through many years of experience of playing and being coached by some of the best. I am also an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and hold a degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Nutrition.

Highlights:

Scarsdale U12 Team coach: girls and boys.
Runs clinics for 2-8 year olds
Private goalkeeper/ field player Coach for over 5 years, for high school aged players
Former Professional soccer player in Sweden
LOVES THE GAME

While competing at Syracuse University, I won the starting position as a freshman and played every minute of every game until the end of my career. I was awarded with Player of the Year and All- Rookie team in 2010, BIG EAST goalkeeper of the year and a first team selection in 2012 and captained in my junior and senior years. Additionally I became the school's all-time leader in wins (28) and shutouts (21) by the end of my 4 years.

Since every athlete is different, it's hard to say what a "typical" session would entail. I try to have a theme to each of my training sessions, depending on the need of the athlete. However, I believe it is critical to always train the fundamentals, no matter the level of the player. It's important for the athlete to have a good baseline skill level and then they can further develop their game from there. I will give an example of a session in which basic handling skills are the focus.

-5 min dynamic warm-up ( jogging, shuffles, hamstring/ hip/ quad/ calf dynamic stretching, large muscle group activation)
- footwork through cones or ladder followed by handling of volleys or strikes off the ground- increasing in difficulty throughout the repetitions, dependent on the skill level of the athlete/s. Focus: positioning of body when catching, mobile feet to adjust for variation in service
- Hitting the ground : vary the footwork or the placement of cones which will lead into a more advanced save: diving. Focus: body position, handling, holding the ball (not tipping or parrying)
- By this time in the session the goalkeepers are fully warmed up and ready to handle any service
- will conclude the session with a competition (brings out the best in us)

Session notes:
- Correct mistakes as they happen, but focus on just one or two points at a time
- Challenge the goalkeepers, but allow them to feel confident within the session
- Always train the basics
- Incorporate agility and/or a strength component into the session
- Competition motivates athletes

Brittany, teaches good techniques and my grandmother liked her as a coach I will schedule more training with her.

My daughter's first training with Brittany was a success! My daughter's first words after her training were "Can we do this again, next week?". Brittany made my daughter feel comfortable right away. She not only patiently taught my daughter great technical techniques, but explained how they would improve her game. Brittany is a professional from start to finish and made booking our first session a breeze! I know my daughter is looking forward to her next session with Brittany!

Coach Brittany was a pleasure to have as a coach. She taught my daughter a lot and she enjoyed each sessions. We rank her with 5 stars. We may have hit the wrong button previously and want everyone to know she is tops.

It's amazing to have a good soccer coach that's so close to where I live. She comes to train me right by my house at the park and it works out perfectly. I'm a forward and she's a goalkeeper so she understands where I should be placing the ball and technique of shooting. She's willing to get in the goal for me and go against me and that kind of service seems to be rare. She gets in the trenches with me and that's why I love working with her!! It's been amazing and I can see myself improving every time. Working with Brittany is a no- brainer!! Thanks girl!
Cam really enjoys working with Brittany. She's learned a great deal in these past 2 years and her training has really elevated her game in the net. She's able to hold more balls, make the big time saves and keep possession by using her foot skills that Brittany always emphasizes! We look forward to continuing to work with her. She's a professional GK so we are very lucky!! Cam is currently getting recruited by a lot of D1 schools so we are all thrilled !
Dear Brittany, Your Training transformed not only my body but my mind! With your training I learned just how strong I can be and how the only thing stopping my progression was lack of a positive attitude. You are a true professional and your willingness to get in the trenches when the going got tough only proved its more than just a job for you!! I found my beauty in my strength, Thank you so much!!
Brittany is an awesome trainer. Every time she has trained me, I can tell my goalkeeping skills have greatly improved. She always pushes me and makes sure I am working hard. She is also very nice and makes me feel great about myself. She is a very dedicated soccer player and extremely talented!
Teammates have always praised me for my work ethic, commitment and drive to succeed. I'll go above and beyond for each client, especially if they buy into the program and are good students. I've helped countless clients get stronger in the gym, lose weight and gain skills on the soccer field depending on their goals.
