About Graeme

I grew up in England and therefore soccer, for me, is life. I played soccer since I was 5 years old, and I have loved very minute of playing, watching and coaching the game. I played through college in England before I started to concentrate more on my coaching and came out to the USA. I have an extensive background and knowledge of organizing, planning and running soccer training practices for 1 on 1 or group sessions.

At college I obtained my coaching qualifications and experiences. Since then I have worked in America, coaching on summer camps, recreation, travel and select teams for over 8 years. In 2009 I volunteered to take part in a fantastic coaching program in Botswana, Africa, where we worked with 23 of the local schools in Maun. Back in England I was also part of the Arsenal.

My coaching specialties are: Dynamic warm ups; Speed, Agility and Footwork; Technical dribbling touches; Skills and turns; Finishing/shooting techniques and Defending techniques.

My philosophy for training sessions (both individual and group) is to maximize the number of touches taken on the ball by each player during practice time. I truly believe the more touches a player takes the better they become and also the more confident they are to want the ball.

I also firmly believe that the players must be given tasks that push them to help to ensure a high training performance which can translate into a competitive situation.
