I have coaches for over 25 years in Minnesota soccer. During these 25 years I have coached at Bangu, MTA, Minneapolis United, PSA, NSSA, Centennial, and North Metro Soccer Association. During this time, I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the best coaches and players in Minnesota. I have always had a focus on development of individual skills as well as promotion of team achievement. This has resulted in 30+ athletes playing DI at various programs nationwide. Our teams have produced 5 State Cup Champions as well as 5 State Cup Runner-ups. There have also been state champions and runner-ups here at North Metro and 4 teams to make premier status under my guidance.
