I came to soccer coaching as many people do, to allow my children to have a team on which to play.  My experience began after many years of playing, by volunteering to help coach my son’s first team when he was 5 years old.  Through this, I realized a passion for helping children learn to play and love the sport.  Any child who wants to, should have an opportunity to be a teammate, to know the satisfaction of team success, and to strive to be a better player.  
My professional background is in Sport Science.  I have spent many years studying the benefits of exercise on the human body and the ways in which athletes can improve their performances.  I will bring this expertise to FC Legacy and work with the Director of Coaching to include conditioning, injury prevention, and assessment into the coaching curriculum to help all players develop their strengths and minimize their weakness so they can develop into the best players possible.
