"The journey and desire to coach started years ago with my daughter and five other little girls. Now, years later, my daughter has moved on to another team; however I still enjoy and have fun working with the kids. I now work with and coach multiple teams and the number of kids has grown. Coaching the game is a passion; working with the teams and providing guidance to the kids provides me an incredible amount of satisfaction and sense of accomplishment. Sharing the knowledge and love of the beautiful game with the kids, seeing them at practice, and watching them at games trying and working hard to apply what was learned is very enjoyable and a feeling beyond description. It has been a humbling experience to see how receptive the kids are to new ideas and how quickly they can absorb information; their eagerness to learn new things and ideas is amazing. It has been an amazing journey thus far."
