What Do I Offer You?
Wealth of Experience
I've played at the highest level for years now. From this, I've gained a wealth of knowledge from my teammates and coaches. I've learned from professional soccer players, legends of the game, and more! Now I want to share it with the next generation of kids!
At 17, I'm the perfect balance of youthfulness and experience. I'll connect to the kids in ways older coaches cannot and be a friend as well as a coach. My youthful coaching technique will be perfect for these kids to fall in love with the game, just like I once did!

Focus on the Basics
If you scroll down you'll find a video of some of my game highlights. As you can see from there, I focus heavily on passing and finding space. Learning and mastering the basics is what got me to the level I'm at today. That's why when I coach, there will be a immense focus on the basics of the game.
