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.

The Head Coach for the U18 Hope Team is Coach Nick.  He is assisted by Coach Graham.

Practice Strategy

We will run possession drills presented to us by world famous school academies such as Manchester City and Barcelona.

Our drills will inspire quick thinking on the soccer field which comes accompanied with making quick passes.

We will focus on field awareness and movement off the ball.  Statistically, out of a 90 minute game, each player only has possession of the ball for 1 – 2 minutes (if that).  The rest of the time, falls under the category of “movement off the ball”.  We will teach our players how to move off the ball to support teammates in both defensive and offensive mindsets.

We will teach our players how to maintain possession of the ball and the creativity it takes to transition from possession to attacking and finishing.

We will show our players how to differentiate between individual excellence and team harmony.

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.
