Coach Chris grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and has been playing soccer since about four or five years old. Coach Chris enjoys coaching and working with children both in school and on the soccer field, while creating a positive environment that helps the players develop both as a player and as a person. In his youth, coach Chris played club soccer and high school soccer for Grove United and for Buffalo Grove High School. In that time, coach Chris was able to travel all around the Midwest with these teams while developing as a player. Now, coach Chris is going to school to earn his EMT certificate and Fire Science degree to become a firefighter, and plays in soccer leagues in his free time. Coach Chris is so excited to get to work and hopes to have a lot of fun learning and growing with all of the great players that he is so lucky to work with!
