Alexis Sponable

Name: Alexis Sponable

Hometown/first soccer experience: I am from Middleville, Michigan. I first started playing when I was 4 for an AYSO team, when I was 8 I started playing club soccer. I played all throughout high school, and then played 4 years at the collegiate level.

Family: I have 5 siblings, one of my brother’s is a Marine, and the rest of my family lives in Michigan.

Years of Coaching: This will be my 5th year coaching. I have coached the past four years at Watertown High school.

Favorite Team and why? I love Manchester United. My grandpa got me hooked on them. We watch their games together any chance that we get!

Favorite Player and why? I have so many different favorite players for different reasons. One of my favorite men’s players is Cristiano Ronaldo, that man is a beast. Works hard and is so very passionate about it. My favorite women’s player is Amy Rodriguez, currently playing for N.C. Courage in the NWSL. She is my favorite because I think she is underrated and yet works so hard, is a good leader on her team. I also learned a lot from her as a player because I played the same position as her.

Coaching Education: I have my Grassroots License.

Why did you start coaching? I started coaching because I love watching kids learn new skills and grow to love the sport that I love.

Coaching Role Models/Mentors: My dad – coached me my entire life. Coach Pill – coached and taught classes that I took. Both men are great coaches and are both passionate about what they do.

Favorite Coaching Memory: This last year the girls beat a team 2:1 that we had lost to the previous 2 seasons quite badly!

What are your hobbies outside of soccer? I love reading, hanging out with friends, and being outdoors.

Favorite Book: John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success

Did you play other sports growing up? Soccer was the only sport that I ever played.

What is something people may never guess about you? I write, eat and drive with my left hand, but I throw balls, bat, etc. with my right hand.

street soccer

We’re excited for Street Soccer to return in Spring 2022!

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!

Sign up required for waiver completion. But then just lace up and show up!
