I have been coaching soccer for 7 years professionally now and I have been lucky enough to travel the world because of that. I have worked at one of the biggest soccer clubs in the world, Liverpool Football Club. Here I was fortunate to learn from some of the best. I have coached a variety of age’s and ability of children and young adults. I want to hopefully work on developing the wonderful coaches of Arlington Soccer Club and provide the tools that will take you to the next stage of your coaching pathway. My playing career has definitely helped my coaching career grow and grow. Having played at some of the highest levels of Women’s Soccer in England and Europe, it was clear to me that I wanted to take my skills on the field and develop not only as a player but as a coach for the future. I have worked for Challenger Sports for 3 years, all have been in the New England region. I am the coordinator of the high class Challenger staff who were handpicked to be a part of this fantastic Soccer Club.

This is my 3rd year working with Challenger Sports, and my 3rd year coaching in the US. My first year was in the Atlanta region, working mainly in south Florida. My second year was here at Arlington Soccer Club, as well as summer coaching throughout New England. This will be my third year and I am really happy to be back again at Arlington Soccer Club, I hope to have more of an impact to help to improve on last year’s programs.  I greatly appreciate the ASC philosophy and am focused on player and coach development.
After competing in youth level Scottish football I came to the US with a collegiate soccer scholarship. I attended two very different colleges:  Mars Hill Soccer, NC – NCAA DII and Grand View University, IA – NAIA.
This year at Arlington Soccer Club I want to be able to coach as many children as possible, to help them improve and have fun in a safe environment. I am excited to be back here at ASC

 

Coach Michael

Home Town:  Carndonagh, Ireland

I have previously coached soccer for Challenger Sports in the Providence, Baltimore and Western Canada regions as an academy coach. I also work as the youth football coach coordinator with my local Irish club (Carndonagh) with a focus on teams from ages 8-16.  I live in Carndonagh, Donegal at the most northern part of Ireland.  I have heard a lot about ASC and I can’t wait to put my knowledge and experience to use.

Coach Brogan

Home Country:  Scotland / Canada

I started work with Challenger sports in 2014 all across Eastern Canada doing summer camps for kids aged 3-18 years.  I followed this with a season in Chicago working with both travel and recreational teams.  In 2015 I worked for Challenger sports as an academy coach in the New England Region.  My family and I moved over to Canada 6 years ago where I graduated with a specialization in Fitness and Health from Conestoga College.  I have worked in the Scottish Football Association level where I obtained level 1.1 and 1.2 SFA coaching badges. I am in the process of obtaining my US National licences.  I have heard great things about the ASC and I am looking forward to the Spring season.
