Coaching Philosophy: My goal in coaching goalkeepers has three prongs:  Technical excellence, mental sharpness and impeccable judgement.  If achieved, our goalkeepers will have the confidence that will allow them to know and understand they are an integral part in their team, not just a player called into action a handful of times over the course of a match.  With luck, I hope that confidence will transfer in their every day life.

Coaching since: 2008
Licenses: USSF D National, NSCAA National Diploma, NSCAA GK 1 & GK 2
Bio: coming soon
Coaching Philosophy:  I believe that player development is more important than a win/loss record.  I believe in and teach “possession” soccer.  I believe that a good coach can make a life-long positive impact on kids they come in contact with.  I originally started coaching to spend more quality time with my own kids.  Once I got a taste of coaching, it quickly turned into a lifelong passion.  My ultimate goal through coaching is to teach this beautiful game and be a positive role model for the kids I am fortunate enough to work with.

Coaching Philosophy:  Discipline, respect, hard work and have fun while doing it. I don't consider Success winning every game, I consider success when I can get an entire group of kids to play together as 1 team and to see every kid playing better than when the season first starts.

Rick Miller - Staff Coach

Coaching since 2005  
Coaching Licenses: USSF E, NSCAA Advanced National, NSCAA GK 1 & 2
Bio: coming soon
Coaching Philosophy:   I believe that being a coach is a greater responsibility than teaching kids to play soccer, helping them navigate the challenges in life by focusing on Character, Integrity and teamwork.  How you carry yourself in life will dictate your success, both on and off the field.  I like to play and coach a possession style of soccer, working the ball out of the back through all thirds of the field, using width and depth to open up attacking space.  I feel a player should leave all they have on the field, it does not matter if you are the best player on the field, but if you were the best YOU on the field.  I encourage my players to strive harder to excel at the best of their ability and to continue to fail harder.  The harder you fail, the harder you work, the better.

Brian Stevens - Staff coach

Coaching since: 2005
Coaching Licenses: NSCAA Advanced National
Bio:  Head Coach Clayton High School Girls Soccer and 05 ODP Coach
Coaching Philosophy:  I have taught and coached for many years and enjoy seeing youth grow into confident young adults.  I believe in placing players in complex situations where they can learn and develop.  I believe that if a player is placed in their optimal learning environment, they will grow to their potential.  My training philosophy is based on perfect effort, not perfect performance.  I have an open door policy to discuss player development.  I encourage parents to ask questions and engage in their player development in a positive and supportive manner.  Soccer is a sport that develops life skills, so my players are taught and expected to respect the sport and everyone involved in the sport including fellow players, coaches, referees, and opponents.  Although winning is great, I believe it is a byproduct of hard work, determination, and player development.
