Coaching Philosophy

“I am a permanent student of the beautiful game. Soccer is my life, love & passion. As a coach, it is my responsibility to create a healthy atmosphere in which players can feel safe in a constant learning environment. Youth Soccer is about development and preparing the participant for a future long term relationship with the game. Patience is key, a healthy competitive environment rather than simply hunting for the winning result is of utter importance. Develop the person first & the player second. Today’s youth soccer players are tomorrow’s young adults. As a role model to young players, I am aware that my behavior and actions have a lasting impact on a player’s future involvement within the game. Respect the game and all involved within its never-ending reaches. Players need to enjoy the game & have a positive experience each time they step on the field. It is an honor & privilege to be involved with & affect the future of many through this art form we call soccer. Be creative, work hard & enjoy every second of the beautiful game.” -Michael Grba
