Your Coach

We’re different!  Hope Soccer Coaches are “homegrown”.  This means they grew up playing for our founder, Coach Nick.  All of our Coaches are skilled soccer players capable of teaching the beautiful game correctly at all age levels.

Each and every coach has completed a training in child safety.

Practice Strategy

Our youth soccer team for Ages 8 and 9 will focus on teaching the basics like the appropriate way to pass using the inside of our foot.

We will focus on field awareness.   Our objective is to teach our young players how to use the space on the field.

Having more space gives players more time to receive the ball, control it, and make a pass.


Having the time to receive the ball, control it, and make a pass results in a better quality when doing these things.

We aim to provide a soccer strategic learning experience through age appropriate games/drills the kids will have fun playing.

At each practice, we share our faith with players wishing to hear. 

Please remember to wear your soccer gear including cleats, and shin guards.  Please bring a water bottle and hand sanitizer.
