COMPETITIVE TEAM COACHES
All Futbol Alaska coaches follow USSF Soccer Curriculum and education. Futbol Alaska places a high priority on coaches training and
education. All of our coaches must hold an 'E' license or within one year of coaching within the club. Many coaches hold much higher State and National Licenses. The Club is
committed to raising the level of coaching licenses and training. Soccer classes, symposiums and training for all coaches are paid for by the club in an effort to provide players
with the finest coaching available. The club further demonstrates its focus on coach and player development through its inclusion of our club consultant.

As a player at heart I'm coaching soccer because I love the game! I first
started coaching youth soccer in the Anchorage area 10 years ago with my
first stint at Spyder Soccer. I then put in a few years coaching
recreational teams for Cook Inlet Soccer Club before moving over to the
Northern Lights Soccer Club where I coached competitive girls' soccer teams
for a few years. At present I'm looking forward to helping develop our NLSC
Academy into a strong program where children learn the basics that make them
into great players of the beautiful game. email@example.com
