Coach Spotlight: Matt Sheeley

Get to know 13U girls red team coach,  Matt Sheeley.

1) Why do you coach soccer?

      I coach soccer, first of all, because I love the game. I love watching, playing and coaching because the game itself can teach us a lot about life. I also enjoy coaching in general. Coaching people can be so rewarding in any environment. When someone you are coaching grasps a concept and betters themselves because of that, it is awesome to see. 

 

2) Tell us about your soccer career/journey.

      I didn’t start playing soccer until a later age. I started playing with my middle school team in the 5th grade. I never had the privilege to play with a club growing up so coaching this year is my first experience inside a soccer club. I played during high school and then in college for a small DIII school called Maranatha Baptist University. I started coaching my my senior year as an assistant coach of a high school team, and then as the head coach of MBU’s women’s team the year after. 

 

3) What is one goal you have for PSU players?

     To grow as individuals as much as they do as athletes. Soccer has a lot to teach outside of how to kick a ball into a net. 

 

4) What is something soccer has taught you?

      Patience and perseverance. 

 

5) What is your favorite soccer team?

      Sporting Kansas City

 

6) How has soccer positively affected your life?

      Soccer is the sport that I have met some of my closest friends in. My past college coach drastically changed the way I viewed the world as a whole even outside of soccer. I can honestly say if I hadn’t played college soccer, I would be a different person.

19U Girls Team Update

Our 19U girls season kicks off this Saturday! We are excited to watch them compete. Over the last few weeks the team has had a few friendly games. In the second friendly, the team traveled to Hartford. We won 4 – 0! Goals were scored by Elyse V, Ella R, Morgan R, and Ally D. We scored in the first 4 minutes of each half which put a lot of pressure on Hartford. The passing was really good between our players. We had Miranda R, Lauren K, and Julia B play with us from the 17U team, and it was great to have them join us.

Don’t forget to check back each week for updates on this amazing team!

A New Twist On Street Soccer

 

Our Street Soccer Program provides players from 9U to 15U (and parents) with the opportunity to simply have fun playing the game. This fall PSU coaches and the I-Mentor program players will join each week to help coach. With the added help the program will be able to further each player’s soccer skills.

Games are played with small teams to increase interaction, teams are created on the day of the event to promote diversity, and games are played without referees to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques.

In this way, players develop their technical and tactical awareness and learn to solve soccer related problems.

Street Soccer will still be FREE! It will run from 5:00-6:30 at the Pewaukee Sports Complex. Please don’t forget your cleats, shin guards, and socks!
