Coaching for Midwest United FC has been a great humble experience I am honored and ecstatic to be able to represent the largest travel soccer club here in West MI and to help develop players of all level including top talented players to get them where they want to be and work together as a club, team, and individually to achieve top level competition and State, Regional, and National Championships. Coaches here at Midwest United FC positively impact the life of a player, to uniquely connect with them and their families and help them understand all they are capable on the field and in life.
I am very excited to be leading the futsal developmental program here at Midwest United FC I will be striving with my futsal leadership to grow this program each year more and more, We as a club are using futsal as a developmental "tool" to the develop soccer players on the field which is a great tool to have for the complete soccer player and all players from all levels can benefit from and for those that want to take futsal to the next level and compete this will be an option as well.
