Why do you coach youth soccer? I enjoy watching players develop from a young age in a sport that they love while working through adversity and finding success. Creating friendships that will last a lifetime. Seeing the players excited for training and games reminds me of my son when he was their ages.

Why HUSC? HUSC prides itself on developing kids the right way. Instilling a strong soccer foundation through technical training while teaching players tactical concepts, all while promoting the players to be self-thinking. All levels of competition cannot be achieved without this. We have players from all over southeastern Wisconsin that have the same desire for success through the soccer journey but it is not just about the sport, it is also about the life lessons they have learned that will build kids into hard working, confident, self-thinking adults.
