I have played soccer all my life, I came to American in 2009 on a soccer scholarship to NAIA outfit Grand View University Vikings. There I spent four years developing my skills playing for the Varsity team while coaching at a local elementary school, with the Scouts of America. During my playing time we were crowned conference champions 3 times, we made it through to the NAIA national tournament 3 times; reaching the quarter-finals twice. I personally scored 1 goal in the national tournament.
My coaching skills have been developed through playing experience under many prestigious coaches.
NAIA National Tournament Quarter Finalist Twice

During my training sessions for the younger ages, the main element is fun. When they are engaged through excitement, teaching the fundamentals through games and exercises becomes a blast. Dribbling skills, passing, co-ordination and athleticism will be implemented throughout each session.
During the training sessions for the older ages, the finer details of the game will be executed. Development throughout middle school and high school can be tough when they are engaged in so many sports; however engaging in personal training session will be the key to gaining the varsity spot you have dreamed of. Again, passing, ball control, technique, shooting, awareness and of course skills will be implemented throughout every session.
