Coach Chris

Coach Chris

My name is Chris and I am a Senior at SUNY Binghamton. As a Portuguese-American, I have grown up looking at Cristiano Ronaldo as a role model and got involved in soccer when I was entering high school in 2013. Since then, I have gained a lot of experience through playing soccer both competitively and on my free time with friends. I am very excited to be coaching for Soccer Shots and I am ready to have a fun season with our future soccer stars.

My name is Peter, from Endicott NY. I’m a recent graduate from the Public Relations program at SUNY Oswego. I grew up playing on the fields at Highland park, and I haven’t stopped playing since. I have 4+ years of coaching at different levels of sport. I look forward to making an impact and growing with the program.

Coach Emily

My name is Emily and I recently moved to Ithaca, NY from Denver, CO! I currently work as a healthcare administrator, but I am always eager to get myself out on the soccer field whenever I can. Although my soccer career ended in high school, I have had the privilege to be a youth soccer coach for the past 3 years. I am looking forward to not only continuing to teach the skills of the wonderful sport of soccer but to also help each child grow individually as a person as well as a team (While having fun of course!). I’m so excited to be a part of the Soccer Shots team, and can’t wait to meet you all on the field!
