More About Coach Stephen

I am a UEFA accredited soccer coach with 8+ years of coaching in the USA and Ireland. I develop and implement soccer educational programs in my current role delivering an AYSO technical training program. My experiences include personal coaching, recreational/competitive soccer teams ranging from U5 to adult level, summer/residential camps, and school programs. I have a Master of Science (M.Sc.) focused in Sports Performance Analysis and have previously been conferred with a BSc in Sports Management & Coaching (honours). I have worked with Republic of Ireland youth teams as a performance analyst.

My greatest accomplishment as a soccer player has been a trial invitation from Sunderland AFC when they competed in the English Premier League. I have captained a team in the Premier Division of Ireland and was voted the players player of the year. I have competed for 5 years at collegiate level in the Republic of Ireland winning the national championships on three occasions.

A typical session for me has been adapted to suit the needs of the client but would be structured so that the player completes a warm up, a practice and a cool down at the end. My objective is player development in areas such as technical development, speed, power, and agility. In my sessions I focus on specific game components - passing, ball control, dribbling, turning, defending and shooting. These are adapted to specific position needs - goalkeeper / striker clinics for example.

Client Reviews

Coach Stephen is an excellent coach with a high level of professionalism, passion for teaching and love for the sport. He was fully prepared and set up when we arrived and eager to learn about our expectations and needs as assessed by us. In his introductory session he covered fundamentals focusing extra attention on areas for improvement (speed and acceleration, composed shooting, speed adjustment when receiving ball during runs). Stephen is very friendly, and his positive and encouraging style made for a great session. Highly recommended coach.

Coach Stephen, Helped me through the Basics of the game as well helped in my overall understanding of the game. The drills were meticulate and purpose driven. I was able to analyze my weakness and Coach Stephen made me practise drills which will help eventually get rid of my weakness. Highly recommend Stephen

Stephen was great with the kids. They were able engage the children while letting them have fun. My daughter came away from the camp more excited about the game and more confident in her abilities. I can't thank him enough!
This was my 6 year old's introduction to soccer and they were so patient! He learned a lot more about soccer than I thought was possible, and he finished off the week more excited than he's ever been about anything. I'm so pleased with this program. I feel like Stephen made an effort to get to know him individually-- and that was so motivating for my son.
Coach Stephen has amazing knowledge, energy and patience. Each child was tested individually and different efforts were made to teach to children based upon the child own unique learning style.
From the beginning I let Stephen know my son needed to improve striking the ball and by the end of the 5 day camp that’s exactly what happened. My 8 year old son strikes the ball much better. Stephen is a top coach, very knowledgeable and great with the kids! This was a great camp with this gentleman and I would recommend to anybody who’s serious about getting top notch instruction from basic fundamentals to competition fundamentals
