Nicole Nienas

Hometown/first soccer experience: I’m from Brookfield, Wisconsin. Started playing soccer when I was 5. Played for Brookfield Club, now known as Elmbrook United. I played varsity soccer at Brookfield Central. I continued playing soccer in college at UW- La Crosse.

Family: I have 2 older brothers. Growing up we were always playing outside. Both my brothers played soccer, so a lot of our family time was spent going to each other’s tournaments. Every year my mom and I travel and take a trip somewhere new.

Years of Coaching: This will be my 2nd year coaching a team, and I started with PSU!

Favorite Team and why?: US Women’s National team. I grew up watching them play, viewed them as role models, and I’ve been to several of their national games.

Favorite Player and why: Favorite womens player is Crystal Dunn because she is a tough defender. Favorite mens player is probably Christiano Ronaldo because of his beautiful finishes.

Coaching Education: I am finishing my Grassroots License. I am excited to continue my soccer and coaching education.

Why did you start coaching? I love the game and can’t imagine my life without soccer being in it. I like to see players develop and see them find their strengths.

Coaching Role Models/Mentors: Troy Dusosky, previously with Elmbrook United. He was my most memorable coach when I was playing youth soccer. He was all about passion and team unity, and was always encouraging and created a positive team environment.

Favorite Coaching Memory: Summer camps. The weather was always beautiful, and the day was filled with fun mini games and scrimmages.

What are your hobbies outside of soccer? I like to travel, cook, read, and enjoy spending time outdoors.

Favorite Book: The Girl on the Train, The Witcher series

Did you play other sports growing up? I grew up playing soccer, basketball, softball, tennis, and golf. I still love watching and playing any sport.

What is something people may never guess about you?: I am left handed in everyday tasks, and left dominate in soccer and basketball. I’m right dominate in softball, tennis, and golf.

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!
