“I love to teach. Soccer, with its many levels of understanding, provides a perfect medium for teachers to hone their craft and understanding. (Perhaps the best teacher I have known in a lifetime of great teachers is Graham Ramsay, a brilliant soccer man to whom I owe so much.) I firmly believe that every player can get better and I enjoy trying to find ways to unlock their abilities. Of course we like to win championships, but a season will be a success if we improve as a team.”

“As a George School coach, I work to put our athletes in positions where they can enjoy success. This means preparing them with the basic fundamental skills, strategies, and fitness levels required to compete. Once this is achieved, we move on to cultivating more advanced skills. During most practices, I ask my teams to work at game speed so that practice can substitute for actual game experience. This approach has helped the boys I have coached to be very successful in terms of wins and losses. More importantly it has helped them to have fun while learning about the sport and what it takes to be a member of a successful team.”

“The goal is a lighthearted and low pressure approach to soccer with the aim of introducing the game to some students while allowing others to continue to build on existing skills. Players come to developmental soccer with a wide variety of experience. We put together a number of teams from within our squad and compete in an internal tournament for the title of World Champions of Devel. By the end of the program even the most inexperienced players have had a chance to enjoy success and work on personal fitness. I love coaching Devel because it is fun. (Cheesy, but true!)”
