Hello Parents. This page gives you a brief description of my background.
I have coached (in the past) boys Baseball and Fastball (3 years).
I have also coached both in the boys soccer system (U6 – current (U11) and the girls (U5 – current (U9). And last year coached Ball Hockey (Richmond Minor Ball Hockey Association). I have also coached in the RSSL (Mens soccer) and managed at that level as well.
Community Coach Children (CCC): 10/13/2007

Started playing at the age of 8 and am still playing as of today. Played on various select teams from the Div 7 – Div 1. Played 2 years of High School soccer. Have been playing for last 20 years mens soccer in various leagues including VMSL and Richmond Senior League.
Fun. Fair Play. Hard work. I believe in developing an environment where both the individual and team should be challenged to improve both themselves and as a team.
Basic philosophy is to challenge the players (team) to be the best they can be by setting goals, meeting them, then resetting. I am also a big proponent of fitness and passing. Individual skill is great, but without being able to pass and utilizing every team member you will be hard pressed to meet any goals the team has set.
I enjoy coaching soccer with the kids. Thank you for your time.
