Tony Catalano

Hometown/first soccer experience: Sussex, WI. Born in Yonkers, NY I started playing soccer at age 5. I later went on to play high school and college soccer.

Family: My wife Sarah and I have 3 children. Alex, Nico, and Alaina. All three children play for PSU.

Years of Coaching: I have coached for ten years.

Favorite Team and why?: Juventus (Club). I love Juventus because they always portray a “never say die” attitude and they are tactically fluid where they change their approach and tactics several times during a game.

Favorite Player and why: Roberto Baggio. He could do it all and make it look effortless.

Coaching Education: I hold a E License.

Why did you start coaching? I started coaching so that I could be around my children, because I love the game, and I want kids to learn to play the game the right way.

Coaching Role Models/Mentors: Matthew Cushing (my former college coach). Coach Cushing taught me well beyond just soccer and taught me about life.

Favorite Coaching Memory: 2019- having my PSU U12 boys beat Hartford in the semifinals of the Hartford Tournament on penalty kicks. We went down a goal with about 2 minutes left in the game only to tie on the last kick of the game. Watching the boys fight back and their excitement in winning on penalties is what it’s all about.

What are your hobbies outside of soccer? Watching all 3 of my children play sports.

Favorite Book: The Game. The history of the 1982 World Cup game between Italy and Brazil. Many refer to it as the game that changed soccer.

Did you play other sports growing up? Yes. I also played baseball and basketball growing up but nothing beats soccer.

What is something people may never guess about you?: I speak Italian fluently.

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!
