Hi there! My name is Bethany and I am from Willet, NY. I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s in Counseling and will be going for my Masters in Occupational Therapy to work with children with special needs. I began to play soccer in Middle School as a way to make new friends. Since then, I have fallen in love with the sport. Along with Soccer, I have ran Track and Field and Cross Country as well as played Volleyball. I have worked with children for years now, from being a babysitter to a camp counselor, and even to a day care teacher. Since I could remember I have always loved working with children. In my free time I love to be outdoors, go for runs or just relax and read a good book. I am new to the coaching atmosphere, but am so eager to begin coaching your little ones.

Coach Andrew

Coach Andrew

Hi all, my name is Andrew, and I am from Freehold, New Jersey. I am a graduate student at Ithaca College in my final year to earning my DPT or Doctor of Physical Therapy. I have a strong strength and conditioning background, which stemmed from playing soccer and being active in my childhood. I started playing soccer at the age of 5 and have played competitively for over 12 years. I did baseball, basketball, and track and field throughout my childhood, but I fell in love with the sport of soccer by the age of 10. Although I do not play competitively anymore, I enjoy playing pick up with friends and watching and following international soccer. In the near future, I hope to travel the world and work with kids and athletes as a physical therapist.
