More About Coach Karl

I have been passionately involved in youth athletic development, fitness, coaching, and teaching for 7 years. I have a unique combination of skills and knowledge that help me to coach and teach the ENTIRE athlete. I have experience as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at a private facility (7 years ), Youth Fitness Specialist (4 years), Physical Education Teacher (4 years), and Soccer Coach (4 years).

I primarily work with younger athletes ranging from the ages of 10 to 18, although, I have worked with multiple college-level athletes.

I currently hold several certifications for performance training and youth athletic development including:
Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association
International Youth Conditioning Association (IYCA) - Youth Fitness Specialist
New Jersey and Pennsylvania K-12 Physical Education Certificate

I was a standout soccer player in both High School and College. I played all 4 years of my college career at Ursinus College (PA - D3). During my senior season I was named team captain and was a 4 year starter playing outside back.

High School:
3-Time All-Central League (PA) - Soccer
2-Time All-Delco (PA) - Soccer
Team MVP during Jr. season (2003)

College:
4-Year Letter Winner in Men's Soccer at Ursinus College
Team Co-Captain (2008 season)

The goal of any training session is tailored to the specific needs of the individual athlete. Emphasis will be placed on the areas that will most rapidly help the athlete meet their goals and earn success. The needs are identified within the first session by having the athlete complete several baseline 'drills' to test baseline sport-specific skill, total athleticism, and fitness. Once identified, these areas are worked on tirelessly during training.

A Snapshot:

- General Warm-Up: This will include dynamic stretching, mobility drills, and basic movement preparation (10 min.).
- Athletic Foundations: The second piece of the session will consist of various skills and drills that will focus on increasing the general athleticism and body control/awareness of the young athlete. Factoring in developmental level, this could include bear crawls and other 'animal movements', cartwheels, handstands, tumbling, agility drills, speed development, plyometrics, etc.
- Sport Specific Skill Development: During this piece of a training session specific skills will be drilled (dribbling, shooting, tackling, etc.)
- Strength and Conditioning: This portion of the session is aimed at performance and fitness. It will consist of a diverse mixture of body weight and implement (medicine ball, sled, bands, etc.) strength and conditioning games and drills that will increase the athlete’s stamina, power, and strength.
- Cool Down: This portion of the session will be used to stretch, cool down, and discuss what was learned or worked on during the session.

Coach Karl is a wonderful coach. It is clearly evident that he is a very skilled soccer player as well as a coach. He is very creative in his coaching methods along with patient and fun. My son really enjoys working with him and we are looking forward to many more sessions with Coach Karl.

Dear Coach Karl, Thanks so much for helping my sons prepare for their high school soccer tryouts. They attend a very large school (3,000+ students) so making a sports team is extremely competitive. My sons appreciated your advice, wisdom and expertise. The combination of conditioning and skills training you offered them was invaluable. We would recommend you to anyone who wants to take their game to the next level. Thanks, Beth Stockton, NJ
