Director of Coaching

Hello,

My name is Coach Angela Lorraine. I am a mother of three teenage boys.  I have been working with children in some capacity almost my entire life including church activities, coaching Rec Soccer, and assistant teaching in a public school.

  1. What made you want to be a Soccer Shots coach?- I played intramural soccer at college and fell in love with the game.  I coached Rec soccer when my children were younger, and when we moved to VA I found out I could do what I love and earn a paycheck at the same time.  Soccer Shots is an amazing program with an outstanding curriculum and I’m so grateful to be a part of this program.
  2. What do you love most about being a coach?- I love when children learn a new skill or score a goal and their faces light up with joy and accomplishment; especially if it’s something they thought they couldn’t do.
  3. What is your favorite food?- Against the Grain Pizza and COFFEE.
  4. What is your favorite Soccer Shots game?- The Bees and the Bear and Escape From Soccer Island.
  5. Fun facts about yourself- I’m a musician, ultramarathon runner, and an avid reader.
