Director of Coaching
I have been involved with soccer since I was 7 years old. I have played at Varsity, Club, and Collegiate levels. I love to watch and play as much soccer as possible. I started coaching on a volunteer basis for youth organizations in my hometown as well as local high schools. A fun fact about me is that I have a Karelian Bear Dog from Finland who loves to hike, camp and travel.

Hi, my name is Danielle, but I usually go by Dani. I have played soccer since I was in kindergarten and have been a part of many teams over the years. I am currently going to school for Physical Therapy and I enjoy running and going on hikes.
Hey soccer shots! I’m looking forward to getting to know you all this next season! My name is Rachel, and I started playing soccer when I was three years old. It was the first sport I ever played, and it was so much fun! I’ve also been a swimmer, track runner, volleyball player, and a rower. Some day I want to be a physical therapist, but for now I’m a student at Ithaca College. I like hiking, going to the beach, and visiting new places. Oh, and I LOVE chocolate 🙂
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 I am so eager to begin coaching your little ones.
I’m Coach Jackie and I’ve been playing soccer for as long as I can remember. I was a member of the Women’s Soccer team at Hilbert College. Outside of soccer I am a Masters student at IC where I study Exercise and Sport Science. I enjoy playing soccer, spending time with my dogs, and kayaking.
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.
Hi, I’m Coach Lisa! I am from Binghamton, NY. I spent the last six years living in Philadelphia, where I attended Temple University and received my Masters of Education in School Psychology. When I’m not coaching, I work full time as a school psychologist in a local elementary school. I also like to cook, read, and go on adventures with my dogs in my free time. I am so excited to be back in my hometown and to have the opportunity to make a positive impact by working with kids in so many fun and unique ways, and I can’t wait to meet all of you!

I started playing soccer when I was in elementary school. I grew up in Southeastern Michigan and just moved to New York to start my graduate studies at Binghamton University for Biomedical Anthropology. I received my bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Spanish Language. I have taught Spanish vocabulary at a children’s Montessori, co-directed a children’s CSI Forensics camp, and was an assistant coach for my high school tennis team after graduating. I love playing silly games with my two nephews who are one and three years of age. I am excited to join soccer shots and begin my coaching journey!
Hi Soccer Shots! My name is Coach Grace, and I am originally from Tivoli, NY. I have been playing soccer since I was 5 years old. It was the first sport I ever played, and I fell in love immediately! I took a few years off of playing soccer when I was in college to pole vault and hurdle for the University of Vermont, but have recently been getting back into playing soccer. I can’t wait to share my love of soccer with you! And a fun fact about me – I have a twin sister!
My name is Rob Mariottini, I was born and raised in New Rochelle, New York, in Westchester County, and am currently a student at Binghamton University. I am pursuing a major in English with a focus in Creative Writing and Poetry. My father came to America straight ‘off-the-boat’ from Rome, Italy, and he is the reason I love soccer as much as I do. I’ve been playing soccer since I could walk, and I have been coaching since I was 17. When I’m not playing soccer, you can find me playing the drums, which I’ve played as long as I’ve played the beautiful game.
My name is Christian Pacode. I’m from Ivory Coast and you might tell from my accent, French is our first language. Soccer is my passion and my favorite player is Ronaldhino.
