"A victory isn't always scoring more goals than your opponent; it's helping and watching a young player develop their soccer skills, falling in love with the game, and building character to be a future leader"

   Justin Krueger  Staff Coach
Played college ball at Ohio Wesleyan University
NCAA Academic All American
ODP State Team
Former Bishop Watterson Girls Varsity Asst. Coach
Former Goalkeeper coach Eagles FC 

Reasons I coach:
1). I love the game of soccer -- playing, watching, and coaching! 
2). I enjoy training young people and helping them develop a love for the game.
3). I believe playing a team sport instills important life lessons in our kids. It is fun being a part of that process! 

  Dave Barta  Staff Coach
  Cari Hockman  Staff Coach
Played at Ohio State University
Former Asst. Coach at Walnut Springs HS
Champion Grand Park Tourney
Mossl Tourney Champs

Reason I coach:

I have played soccer all my life and currently still play year-round.  I love the game; whether it’s watching, playing, studying, practicing or training. I enjoy developing young athletes and seeing them accomplish a new skill or move and pushing them to be the best they can be on and off the field. Growing their character as young athletes through soccer is very rewarding and one I take seriously.  I love to hear, “Coach, what can I do better or how can I improve?”  This is what drives me to continue developing these young athletes to hopefully someday play collegiately, professionally or for fun as an adult. 

Derrick Walling  Staff Coach

Former Graham High School Coach
Played for the All-Marine Corps Team
Played for the Quantico Marine Corps Base Team

Coaching Philosophy
1.      Develop team players while improving individual skills.
2.      Be disciplined and respectful.
3.      Have fun and love the game.

Slogan:“Do your job!”

I tell my players that if they are doing their job (playing their position with discipline) and their teammates are as well, then soccer becomes easy. We may not win every game when everyone does their job but we will at least put up a fight and make it harder for the other team to win!
