Adam Neylon

Hometown/first soccer experience: I grew up in Northern Illinois and first played when I was around 4- or 5-years old

Family: My wife Hannah and I have 3 kids, Elizabeth, Tommy, and Henry. Elizabeth is in Micros and Tommy will be starting Explorers in the Fall.

Years of Coaching: This is my third year. 

Favorite Team and why? I love to follow young Americans playing abroad, especially in the UEFA Champions League. So right now, I’m watching Christian Pulisic at Chelsea, Gio Reyna at Dortmund, Weston Mckennie at Juventus, Sergino Dest at Barcelona, Timothy Weah at Lille OSC, Brendan Aaronson at RB Salzburg, and Tyler Adams at RB Leipzig. 

Favorite Player and why: Gio Reyna because his dad Claudio was my favorite player growing up, and I feel a connection to him and his family. 

Coaching Education: I’m enrolled in obtaining my Class D License through the US Soccer Federation. 

Why did you start coaching? To improve my knowledge and understanding of the game. 

Coaching Role Models/Mentors: I’m a big fan of Pep Guardiola for his positional play and training techniques, but I also love young innovative coaches pushing the envelope like Julian Nagelsmann. 

Favorite Coaching Memory: Coaching my 4-year-old daughter on the Micros. 

What are your hobbies outside of soccer? I love following and playing other sports like baseball and basketball, and also enjoy hiking, reading, watching documentaries, attending concerts, traveling, and hanging out with my family. 

Favorite Book: Anything by Malcolm Gladwell. While very different, I also love reading John Steinbeck novels. 

Did you play other sports growing up? Yes, I also played baseball, basketball, and American football growing up. 

What is something people may never guess about you? I’m currently elected to my 5th term in the Wisconsin State Assembly, proudly representing Pewaukee, Sussex and Waukesha is the state Legislature.

street soccer

In our Street Soccer program, players have the opportunity to create their own teams, make their own calls, and unconsciously develop their technical and tactical awareness–all while expressing themselves with the ball at their feet. We believe players should be able to manage themselves and have the freedom to play, interact, problem-solve, innovate, and take ownership of their participation in the game. Teams are created the day of to promote diversity, and games are played without referees to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques. Our I-Mentor coaches will supervise each field making sure that players and facilities are safe while maintaining a fun and challenging environment.

PSU’s Street Soccer is open to all 9U to 19U players. Our Old School Street Soccer is open to any parent, soccer coach, and their significant others. Bring the whole family!
