What Do You Like Most About Being a Soccer Coach at SoccerGemz?

Coach Beth

I love coaching at SoccerGemz because it gives me the opportunity to bring my passions of teaching, coaching and athletics together. My role allows me to build relationships with athletes and their families and foster life skills such as sportsmanship and determination.

The athletes and families at SoccerGemz are truly what make this program so spectacular. We keep the classes engaging, interactive, and most importantly fun! They’re always changing, so when our athletes come back for the next session, they’re guaranteed to learn something new. We love to see growth!

My favorite SoccerGemz game has to be Raging Bulls. ¡Olé!
