Coaching Philosophy
To share my passion for the game of soccer and teach players to respect and enjoy the game; to foster an environment that allows for creativity and development by encouraging kids to step outside of their comfort zone and try new things.  Winning is secondary to the development of the player both on and off of the field.  HAVE FUN.
