More About Coach Ken

Coach Ken grew up in the military and spent time in Germany as a child and learned soccer there. His coaching career started over 25 years ago as an assistant coach at Hewitt Trussville and later coached high school at Berry High School, Hoover High School and Spain Park, he has also coached at the collegiate level for NCCAA Division 1 Judson College. Coach Ken has been coaching women’s and men’s teams and has taken numerous teams to the state and regional play offs. He has had his players recruited to the SEC, Conference USA, Great South, Southern Collegiate Conference, SWAC and Appalachian Athletic Conference. He currently holds a USSF “B” License, and NSCAA Advance National Goalkeeping Diploma. Coach Ken has been a seminar speaker for numerous organizations including Alabama High School Athletic Association and written several papers on helping bring the most out of soccer players and business professionals and create a winning team. His passion is to help coaches and players reach their potential on the field and in the classroom.

Played in College as a goalkeeper for Samford University as we moved from a club team to an NCAA team. Played for over 20 years in all levels of the adult league.

All sessions start with warm ups that focus on foot speed and agility as well as basic goalkeeping skills. We follow a specific training topic per session and start with defining and executing that skill. Then move to putting that skill into a dynamic activity, moving through cones over huddles, move around poles or mannequins. Next to live shots in a game like situation, sometimes with a Side Kick ball machine. During the entire session always talking about the communications, tactical and psychological aspects of the game

Coach ken was awesome Our little boy Dylan loved it we can’t wait till next sección. He was patient and even told daddy what he can do to help him at home.
Thank!!! Coach ken

My daughter's 1st session with Coach Ken was great! She is in her first year as goalkeeper. He gave a quick overview of what he was seeing in her technique and gave clear details on how she should change. She likes how he gets his points across and enjoyed the drills. He has a very encouraging, positive style yet also honest where she needed to improve. He obviously has a lot of knowledge to share and she is looking forward to more sessions!

Great coach!! would recommend him to any individual trying to get better. He has great teaching skills and makes you understand how to become a better player and teammate. I can already see a major improvement overall! I plan to have more sessions with him in the future. Thanks for all the help coach!!

Coach Ken has been very helpful, making use of every minute of time scheduled. My son is learning new skills and improving overall with every session.

Coach Ken- thank you for training my son. He loved every minute and cannot wait to train with you again.
You are truly professional and a nice guy !

Coach Ken is awesome! He will describe a technique, show how to do it and then has my daughter to try it. He has so much patience and wants to make sure the kids love soccer as much as he does.

Coach Ken is patient, detail oriented and imaginative in his techniques. He is a true coach and teacher. We couldn't have asked for better results after just one session. We are so pleased and fortunate that we came upon this site and have been connected with Coach Ken!! Our daughter is very pleased and excited about learning more and looks forward to her next session! Thank You!

Coach Ken was super! He was very patient and positive. I will definitely recommend him whenever the opportunity to comes up.

Phenomenal coach... He knows what he is doing and his experience is evident. In only the first session I've had with him, my technique and confidence as a goalkeeper have vastly improved.
