“Manhattan has been my home for over 30 years and I have navigated the NYC soccer scene as a player, coach, board member, volunteer and parent.  DUSC is already a model for holistic and inclusive player development in NYC so I am excited to be involved in supporting and growing the progressive platform of programs that DUSC operates. I am passionate about bringing my value-based approach to DUSC and my initial goal is to build on the strong and positive soccer developmental experience for all the DUSC stakeholders: players, parents, coaches and employees.”

A good coach is one who helps his players maximize or discover their potential. That is his principal function.
