My goal is to help players understand the technical aspects of soccer but, to first learn to enjoy the game through the process. Players have different goals and aspirations for the sport and my job is to make sure they learn to play soccer the right way, no matter where their path leads. I channel my energy toward coaching and mentoring so our youth realize their true potential not only as athletes but as high character individuals.
You don’t train until you get it right. You train until you can’t get it wrong.
