Best soccer advice you ever got?

"Winning isn't everything but wanting to win is." "It's not over until the final whistle." "If you do not believe you can do then you have no chance at all!"

Best experience(s) as a coach at the Stanford Soccer Club?

I began coaching with Stanford SC in November 2011 when I took a U12 girls team. They were not shy in telling me they did not have the success they wanted in the league and tournaments, but I knew with hard work and belief that would change. In a single season, the girls won the league, were crowned Palo Alto Tall Trees Tournament champions and runners up at District Cup! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a group of players start believing in themselves and in what they can achieve.
