Soccer Starts at Home
My name is Ian Keeble and I am the head girls soccer coach here at Lovejoy. The purpose of this note is to introduce myself, my program, and help you make sure your child has a great experience as a youth soccer player. I also want to improve the soccer being played at Lovejoy by reaching out to parents before their daughter tries out for Lovejoy Girls Soccer in the 7th grade. Next year will be my 10th year here at Lovejoy after spending six years as the boys assistant. In the six years I was with the boys program, we went to the third round of the playoffs three times. Since I have moved over to the girls program, the team went from winning three games the year before I arrived, to 15 this year. I am currently the head coach for the 2005 North Texas Boys State Team and on the South Region Staff for the Olympic Development Program. I hold a USSF National "C" Coaching License, USSF National Youth License, and a United Soccer Coaches Premier Diploma. I also played soccer at Austin College for four years. As a parent, if you are interested in improving your daughter's (or son's) experience playing soccer here is part 1 and here is part 2 of an article/interview with Tom Byer who shares his "soccer starts at home" philosophy. You can click here for some online support materials to see what he is doing with the Houston Dynamo youth program.
I will be hosting a camp over the Summer as well, click here for more information and to register. I would be happy to send you more resources, help educate you on the club soccer system, or start some private/group training sessions with your son, daughter, or their team. If you have any questions or need any help please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
