Lawrence Jorash

Lawrence Jorash

Lead Coach

My name is Larry Jorash. I am currently enrolled at Nichols College for a pursuit in Child Psychology. I have been working with children for the better part of the last decade and have been playing soccer since I was 7 years old. Personal pursuits in soccer began for me in the off season of ice hockey for conditioning purposes, and the game has always been a part of my life. I moved to Orlando in August of 2015 and shortly after found Soccer Shots completely by accident while looking for a place to play the game. After stumbling across this franchise I soon fell in love with the concept and haven’t looked back since. I love my job and the passion it brings not only to me, but from my students as well. Soccer is sometimes known as the beautiful game and my efforts to teach the sport reflect that.

Passing on my love and knowledge of soccer to kids is something I take a lot of pride in.

Kevin Glick

Kevin Glick

Coach

Soccer is my passion. I have played since I was 5, teams I have played for include UW-Oshkosh, FMI, I was a part of the USA player pool from 1995-1999, and was fortunate enough to play professionally for the Milwaukee Wave ( although that lasted for only two weeks due to injuries). I have been fortunate to be coached by such great soccer icons as Thomas Rongen, Hayden Knight, Herbie Dundun, Tony Meola, Ray Hudson, and Victor Nogueira. Currently I am a junior at UCF getting my degree in sports science and am very excited to continue my coaching career here with Soccer Shots. I have been coaching for 6 years now, mostly at the high school level but have ran soccer camps and soccer academy’s for ages 3-19 since my high school days. I love this game, I love teaching this game, and I love showing others the passion, fun, and opportunities this game has to offer. Soccer Shots is perfect for getting kids into the game to see all the wonderful things this game can give and am very excited to be apart of it.
