Bella Turelli

Hometown/first soccer experience: Born and raised in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Started playing soccer for Brookfield at age 4. I continued my career playing club at Brookfield then once I got to high school I switched to Elm Grove. I played Varsity all 4 years at Brookfield Central High School, then played college soccer at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. To this day, I continue to play in soccer leagues around the area.

Family: I grew up in a family of 4. My mom Debbie, my dad Dan and my brother Daniel. I have 3 pets, a chocolate lab named Luco, yorkie-poo named Daisy-loo, and an orange cat named Leo.

Years of Coaching: 6. Started doing private lessons with young kids and worked my way into PSU.

Favorite Team and why?: Women’s US team because I like way they play and how they are so close together like a family.

Favorite Player and why: Alex Morgan because I love her foot skills and the way she portrays herself on and off the field.

Coaching Education: I have my F coaching license and plan on working my way up!

Why did you start coaching? I did not want to stop my soccer career after college, so coaching was a perfect fit. I have a passion for educating young kids about the game.

Coaching Role Models/Mentors: My dad is one of my role models when it comes to coaching. He was a high school and college football coach for many years. I have learned great tips from watching him and how to handle different situations.

Favorite Coaching Memory: One of my favorite coaching memories is being undefeated with my U9 girls. I loved watching each player grow and develop their skills.

What are your hobbies outside of soccer? I love working out, staying active, being outdoors, taking my dogs for walks, and hanging with friends and family.

Favorite Book: Twilight series

Did you play other sports growing up? I played competitive volleyball all throughout High School.

What is something people may never guess about you?: I am 100% Italian

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!
