I am Coach John. 

I have coached youth soccer for twelve seasons at the time of this posting (November 2007) and I like to hike, camp, launch model rockets, take photographs, write, play chess, travel, build sand castles, carve pumpkins (with power tools!), read, fight prostate cancer, yell at the TV with my wife (darn politicians!), and much, much more.

When I was growing up there was no soccer.  Well okay there was soccer, but not in most cities and towns of the USA.  It wasn’t until my son started playing that I first took an interest, then fell in love with the game.

I hope this site will help you learn how to START, RUN, and WIN at soccer.
