Our Coaches

A truly great coach is

so much more than just a coach

Our coaches are more than just soccer experts – they are teachers, mentors, motivators, and first-class role models. They challenge players to bring out their best, they inspire and support each player’s aspirations, and they nurture an environment of individual and team success. It’s why we invest so heavily in our coaches, ensuring they’re equipped with the tools, training, and resources to help our players be successful both on and off the field.

Each soccer coach at PSU has passed coaching excellence training.

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!
