Alex was excited to have Chris as a coach from day one, and with each passing practice and game that sentiment has grown. She responds to the genuine respect he has for his players. He actively challenges them to be better and to work hard to play to their potential – and Chris’ personal experience as a pro player gives him the knowledge and tools to help them accomplish that. As a parent, I have rarely seen a coach who can so effectively motivate his players to rally during a game, especially when things get tough. Alex simply loves soccer, and for her to have a coach that helps nurture that passion is a real find.
