Athletics offers a great opportunity for learning many of life's lessons. It teaches: teamwork, focus, resiliency, dedication, and ethics. Given the myriad of issues individuals face in life sports can help young people coupe with the many pressures they face. I will be coaching soccer for my third season at SSICP. I look forward to working with the squad and establishing a tradition of sportsmanship and athletic competition. Given that we have a state-of-the-art field I feel we have constructed a sense of invaluable pride in our team and school; I think the light will shine on our team this year. We have many talented and hardworking players returning. I think my experience as an NCAA athlete and professional collegiate coach have helped foster the team's development. Go Tars!
