About this pro

I don't believe in "I can't". I believe everyone is capable of becoming who they want to become both as an athlete and as a person. It's about developing the mindset that you're unstoppable and the only person who stands in the way of accomplishing what you want; is you.

Watching someone develop into the very player they dreamed of being.

    Coach Lauren is very patient, knowledgeable and a great listener. She not only explains in detail the skills she is teaching but also demonstrates the exact moves herself to our daughter, 7 years old. Her coaching style is on point for our daughter. She is very skilled and generous with her knowledge when training. Coach Lauren will definitely be one of the keys to success for our daughter.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Talk about personal goals mentally, physically, soccer wise as a team contributor and for individual performance. I like to get to know your "why" as well as your strengths and weaknesses. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am extremely big on work ethic. I live by the quote "hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." If you're not ready to exceed your potential and overcome adversity, then I am not the right fit for you. I will make you work extremely hard, making sure your game is sharp in physical as well as mental aspects. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I will initially charge $50 (possibly more if I have to drive farther). I have many years of experience. If you enjoy the intial practice and want to continue doing weekly lessons, we can talk about pricing. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started coaching in high-school when my high-school team hosted summer kid's soccer camps. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Students of all ages of all talents. I don't discriminate with experience. If you've got the mentality that "you can", and all you need is someone to help develop technique, conditioning, etc. I WILL help you accomplish your goal. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The most recent soccer event I had a blast doing was my collegiate team bonding of paint war. I miss my college team very much. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Growth and becoming the best player comes from discomfort and overcoming adversity. Any coach can run you through basic drills, but few coaches can help you advance to where you want to be. I am one of those few coaches who knows from experience as a player what it takes. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What motivates you to play?

What makes you want to be better?

What is your goal for this month, 6 months, a year, 5 years?

Do you want the easy route or the hard one?
