To progress in any sport, an athlete must train on their own.  Two practices, and three hours a week isn't enough to cover all the basic skills especially if the player is behind.  We have uploaded Coercer foot skills that are easy to do at home.  Please encourage your player to juggle on his/her own, and work on the skills in the video.  If you send us a video of the student working on the foot skill we will post them.

Coach Mike Menard

We want to thank Coach​ Menard, who held training sessions on Sunday evenings for the Crusaders.  Coach Menard is currently the trainer for the boys’ soccer team at Pine Ridge High School where he won two District Titles and made a Sweet 16 and Elite 8 appearance in the FHSAA State Tournament.  One of the original founders of the Deltona Youth Soccer Club, Menard has been a mentor and coach to thousands of players around the country.  He holds a Brazilian Certificate as well as an Advanced National Diploma from the NSCAA and a “B” license from USSF.  We are very excited and fortunate to have his experience and expertise on the field with us.  Coach Menard was the club coach of Coach Korkus, and the high school coach of Coach Alexander, Coach Sweeney, Dr. McPhearson, Coach Erickson, and Coach Robinson.
