My goal with every player, team and family is to provide an educational experience with the sport of soccer to better encompass all facets of the game.  Player identification, development and promotion are at the core of my priorities.  I strive to assist all players to develop skills necessary to continue playing the game at a high level of competition and stay current with game theories and philosophies as they evolve.
