Coaching since: 2005
Coaching Licenses:  NSCAA Advanced  National
Bio:  Head Coach Clayton High School Girls Soccer and 05 ODP Coach
Coaching goals: 
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.

Joel Tucker - Staff Coach
Coaching since: 1997
Coaching Licenses: NSCAA Advanced National, GK Level 1 & 2, USSF National D License & National Youth
Coaching Philosophy: My focus, as a coach, is very much about “player development”. I want to encourage the players to be creative with the ball.  I want to help give the players a chance to learn soccer skills, strive to improve speed & strength, grow and have some fun along the way. We will stay focused on the ability to control and manipulate the ball, and learn tactical awareness during the play of the game. I want them to learn a little more about the game of soccer and hope to develop in them a love for the game, while trying to teach them about team spirit, good sportsmanship, improve and master soccer skills. I will do my best to refrain from “over-coaching.

Rick Miller - Staff Coach

Teams: 00 Boys Silver
Has been coaching since 2005
USSF E, NSCAA Advanced National, NSCAA GK 1 & 2
Favorite Professional Soccer Team Bayern Munich
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. 

Tom Eure - Staff coach

Coaching since: 2008

Licenses: USSF D National, NSCAA National Diploma, NSCAA GK 1 & GK 2
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.  

Tyler Van Hall - Staff coach

Coaching philosophy:  You are how you train.  Train like a champion, win like a champion. The same work ethic that will carry you as a soccer player will drive you to be successful in life.
