More About Coach Mike

I bring an extensive soccer background to the table having played, coached and scouted in a variety of capacities over the last 25 years. Currently, I am a college soccer scout for the National Scouting Report and have coached at the youth club and college club levels.

As a College Soccer Scout, I evaluate top-level high school players at college showcases across the country and manage selected athletes through the college recruiting process. I have assisted players in committing to play soccer at colleges and universities from coast to coast and all levels of play (DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, JuCo).

I earned my U.S. Soccer coaching licenses (USSF E and D) and have coached boys and girls at the high school, youth club, and college club levels in Ohio, Oregon, Colorado, and Idaho.

Coaching Positions:
Head Coach - Olentangy Liberty High School Girls Soccer (Powell, Ohio)
Co Head Coach – Boise State University Women’s Club Team (Boise, Idaho)
Assistant Coach – Boise Timbers 05 Boys (Boise, Idaho)
Head Coach – FC Legend Titans Boys Soccer (Parker, Colorado)
Head Coach – Real Colorado Girls U16 (Parker, Colorado)
Associate Head Coach & Director of Goalkeeping - FC Legend Titans Girls Soccer (Parker, Colorado)
Associate Head Coach & Goalkeeper Coach - Sheldon High School Girls Team (Eugene, Oregon)
Academy Coach - Eugene Timbers Futbol Club (Eugene, Oregon)
Head Coach - Portland State University Women’s Club Team (Portland, Oregon)
Volunteer Coach - Olentangy Liberty High School Boys Team (Columbus, Ohio)
Volunteer Coach - Bishop Ready High School Boys Team (Columbus, Ohio)

I started playing soccer as a fourth grader in 1994. I went on to play varsity soccer at the high school level from freshman year and on. I continued playing after high school at the adult club level for several seasons, until retiring from playing competitively, though I still play recreationally to keep my fitness and love of the game going.

While soccer is truly a team sport, it is critical that each individual player be as stout and well-rounded within their own game as possible. Often times, young players find themselves only training within the structured atmosphere at organized team sessions. I highly recommend that players of all ages and abilities train on their own, whether alone in the backyard, with friends at a park, or 1 on 1 with a coach, all are imperative for improving.

My approach is simple, but not easy… In order for any player to upgrade their soccer ability, it is key that they become students of the game. I teach players to look at the sport as if it is an area of study, much like subjects in school. They must watch the game in a new way, view the game in a new way, and learn the game in a new way, which in turn will allow them to PLAY the game in a new way.

We are really happy with Mike. He is a good coach amd person also. Our son is improving with techniques he taught him from last few sessions.

Coach Mike was professional and seemed really excited to work with my son. He seemed knowledgeable and communicates well with us by checking in on his progress throughout the week.

My son's training with Coach Mike was excellent. He's very knowledgeable and found some important improvement areas to work on. My son's left foot improved during the session and Mike gave us good drills to use at home.

Coach Mike went above and beyond to help my daughter improve her soccer skills. He attended her soccer games and watched her game tape. He really listened to our concerns and tailored her sessions around her needs. He always made himself available for questions and offered great feedback. We saw immediate improvements with our daughter and she really enjoyed her sessions. We would most definitely recommend Coach Mike to anyone!

Session was great! My sons first task was to review himself like a scouting report. Really made him think about his strengths and weekenesses. Proceeded right into to drills and sent him home with “homework”. I can see an improvement after just one session. Looking forward to next session.

My daughter Tannyr grew leaps and bounds from coach Mikes private soccer sessions. Her ball skills, speed, strength and agility increased at such a high rate that she was brought up from JV to varsity in the same season. My daughter had been playing competitive soccer since age 11 however, it only took a few sessions a week with coach Mike to hone her skills and bring her to a higher level of play. I was so impressed by her growth I asked Mike to train with me in the gym and I too saw immediate changes in my body training 3x a week with Mike and it only took 4 weeks to see major differences. Although, we live in different states now, the three of us bonded and created a lasting friendship as my daughter and I are honored to now consider coach Mike part of our family. Thank you Mike for always going above and beyond for your players and their family members.
