    I am from Ohio but go to UCCS here in Colorado Springs. I have a passion for sports and health. In my free time, I love to run! I've been playing soccer since I was five and have never gotten tired of it! I enjoy being able to share my love and passion for the game with all of our little players here at Soccer Buddies!

    I am from Colorado Springs however I learned to play soccer at 10 years old in Bavaria, Germany. With teams like FC Bayern to motivate me, I really took a liking to the sport. I believe sports play a vital role in each child’s life by developing life long skills and passions. Soccer Buddies gives a special opportunity for young children to gain confidence on the ball in a very supportive and enthusiastic environment. Working at Soccer Buddies and teaching the children gives me so much joy.
  • Coach Ava

    Hey hey! I’ve lived in Colorado my whole life but I moved cities in 2016. I enjoy art or journaling, anything expressive. I used to play soccer but I don’t anymore, however I still enjoy it very much! Especially when I’m playing with the kids. Their energy and positivity is the most refreshing and exciting part about my day! I want the kids to have fun and enjoy being at Soccer buddies just as much as I do!

  • Coach Brandon

    I’m Coach Brandon, I’m from Las Vegas, Nevada. I’ve traveled all over, played sports all my life, and love giving back to my community. Soccer Buddies has by far been one of the best ways to give back, building up our youth is the most rewarding thing I can do in life. My focus as a coach, is too show kids how amazing they can be at soccer when they believe in themselves and trust their teammates to have fun and score some goals!

  • Coach Christian

    I was born and raised in Aurora Colorado, I am 16 years old and a sophomore in highschool. I have played soccer since I was in the 6th grade after playing a little of baseball and football. I play soccer for Eaglecrest Highschool where I also go to school. I found soccer buddies through my mom because shes works and plays at Arapahoe sports center since I was very little. I really enjoy my time working for them, I love my coworkers because all of them are amazing and have amazing personalities, and I especially love the kids that I get to see.
  • Coach Courtney

    I was born and raised here in Colorado. I love doing anything that has to do with being active like hiking, running, and soccer buddies! I love getting to build relationships with the kids while having fun and building soccer skills. Watching the kids progress not only from week to week but from one level to the next is great and I love being apart of it.
  • Coach Cyan

    I am from Colorado but often find myself encountering on a new adventure where ever I go. Though I love to travel, I love soccer just as much. Being able to share my passion and love for soccer with your kiddo is a wonderful experience. At Soccer Buddies, the love and fun of soccer brings families, kids, and staff together. As we have grown to create a community, being a coach at soccer buddies is something I love being apart of
  • Coach Dan

    I lived all over the place, from Costa Rica, Missouri, Oregon, Washington, and even Mexico! I played soccer all of my life, and in college at Northwest University in Washington.

    I love that Soccer Buddies kids get a chance to play soccer while also being able to use their imaginations! And I love to coach because I get to be a kid!

    My favorite Soccer Buddies game is the Crab Game.

  • Coach Dessire

    I was born in Lawton, Oklahoma, but have lived in Colorado Springs for 15 years now.

    I have played soccer since I was five years old, played varsity soccer all four years in high school. I love to be outside and active all around.

    What I love most about Soccer Buddies is that this is not just a job or company we are a family. Everyone who works for Soccer Buddies genuinely cares about what this company stands for and impacting children in a positive way. I have never been a part of something that I was so proud to say I’m involved with. I could talk about the benefits of Soccer Buddies for days. Another thing that I really love is that the company really makes a difference in the lives of the kids that participate. My son has been coming to Soccer Buddies for a couple years now and when he first started he would not talk to anyone. Hiding behind my leg is where he would stay, but after going and meeting the coaches and seeing how much other people cared, he started opening up much faster. Now I can't get him to stop talking about Soccer Buddies and Julie.

    What I love about coaching is that I'm not just a coach to the kids and parents, I become friends with them. I love being able to be another positive influence in their lives, I normally coach the youngest classes and seeing how much they grow and develop during sessions is like being a proud mother watching their child walk for the first time. All the kids are always so happy to see you and seeing the joy in their faces is priceless. No amount of money could take the place of the joy that fills my heart when I see the kids so happy and being active.

    I love all the games we have, but if I had to pick my favorite one it would have to be Bears in the Forest. The kids’ imaginations just run wild when we are traveling through the forest to help feed Buddy the bear. Allowing children to let their imaginations run free is a such a great feeling.

    I LOVE Soccer Buddies. I found Soccer Buddies by chance and it has changed my life. I have been with Soccer Buddies for three years now and it is the BEST place to be. I love being able to build a genuine relationship with my kids and have fun out on the field with a soccer ball. Watching your kids grow not only in skill but confidence is unbelievable. I can not wait to see YOU out on the field!

  • Coach Esai

    My name is Esai Hernandez or better known as Coach E. I was born in Kingsville Texas, but my father was in the military so we moved around a lot. I’ve live in Colorado three times, Texas twice, and Germany. I grew up playing football and basketball. Once I was in high school I played football, volleyball, rugby, soccer, and basketball. My favorite foods are tacos, ribs, soup, and spaghetti. I love to hike, play soccer, hang out with friends and family, and enjoy time working out. I coached high school varsity soccer for both boys and girls for four years and have been with soccer buddies since 2017. Coaching is one of my passions and being able to see every single kid/parent smile and laugh is what I coach for. I’m currently in the process to become a police officer for Colorado Springs and am working on going back to school in the fall of 2020.

  • Coach Hunter

    Hi my name is Hunter! I am a singer/guitarist and I do graphic design for businesses in my free time. My top priority in life is family. I have multiple cousins who have been coming to Soccer Buddies since they were about 1. I just got out of high school and I'm still doing what I can to figure out what I want to do with my life. (Aren't we all?) What I do know is that my passion is working with kids. I really love working for Soccer Buddies because they remove the stresses of usual youth sports. I did a dozen different sports when I was younger and I got burned out of all of them because of stressful social situations, lack of confidence in my own abilities, and honestly just bad coaches. Sports in general are so amazing for kids and I want to help them realize just how fun they can be! My favorite things about being a kids soccer coach is that I can play a part in showing kids what it's like to work hard for what you want and what disappointment is and how to work with it to better yourself. Sports can carry kids through the hard parts of growing up. They are our future and I want to help in being a positive role model in their lives.

    Hey to all my “Soccer Buddies!” I’m Coach Laura. I grew up in Reston, Virginia.
    I love soccer, skiing, biking, painting and being outside! I am a mom of 2 boys (ages 4 &2) and was a special education teacher. I’ve been coaching and teaching kids for over 10 years and have found a home with Soccer Buddies. This program allows kids to learn fundamental skills while having fun. Every season you get to watch your kids confidence grow and performance get better and better.
  • Coach Lauren

    Hi, I’m Coach Lauren and I LOVE kids! I grew up here in Colorado with three older siblings and three younger siblings. I have been coaching with Soccer Buddies for 1 year this May, and I have learned so much from my fantastic co-coaches! My favorite part about coaching is watching the kids grow together as well as individually with each class. There is no better feeling than to know you you are helping a child learn not only soccer skills, but also social skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. I also have lots of experience coaching kids with special needs.

    Colorado has been my home for the last 20 years, and it is wonderful to live in a place that promotes being active and having a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy snowboarding during the winter and camping in the summer, and of course playing any kind of sport.
    I have been coaching with Soccer Buddies for the last 7 years and It’s amazing to see how much fun the kids have in our program. Every class is an opportunity to learn something new. Most importantly, each one of the kids is able to grow in their confidence in playing soccer and working together as a team. I love being a part of the Soccer Buddies family.

  • Coach Makenna

    Growing up, I played nearly every sport imaginable that a girl could. Whether it was soccer, softball, volleyball, basketball, track, or dance, I was definitely the athlete of the family. I started playing soccer here in Colorado Springs at the age of four and will continue playing throughout college at UCCS, as soccer has become the only sport I have a passion for! Coaching at Soccer Buddies is such a great opportunity for me to stay involved with my community in the best way possible, sharing my love for the game with all of these other little players that are ready to learn and have bundles of fun! My favorite game we play here at Soccer Buddies is Birds Nest. I think it is so cool how much the kids love pretending to be birds and how they get touches on the ball when we try to "hatch the eggs".

  • Coach Mario

    I was born in Colorado Springs and have lived here all my life. I am a Senior Engineering student at UCCS studying for my Bachelors of Science with a Major in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Aerospace Engineering. I am an avid hockey fan (Go Avs), and I have been in love with soccer my whole life. I played soccer as a child, along with basketball. I discovered Soccer buddies when searching for a second job in my junior year of college. I have since grown very attached to the program and the work and service we provide to the youth of our community. Connecting with the kids, watching them grow and learn in their love and skill for soccer through the work we do is inspiring and truly an incredible experience. I've said to those closest to me that if I were able, I would be a coach for Soccerbuddies for free, because the smiles, laughs and experiences I get to share with the kids is extremely rewarding in itself.

    I am a Colorado native and have lived here my entire life. I love doing anything outside and hiking in the mountains. My favorite thing to do is play soccer, I've been playing ever since I can remember and have loved it since. I love the family that Soccer Buddies has developed, these kids love learning soccer and being around their coaches which makes me so happy. The relationships that we build with kids are so important and watching the kids grow and develop as people and players is so fun. I love being a part of it.

    I am a proud Colorado native and have lived in Aurora my whole life. I enjoy being in Colorado's nature, painting, playing guitar, trivia, and of course soccer. I started playing soccer when I was five and it has been a huge part of my life ever since. That's what I love about being a part of Soccer Buddies: I get to share this amazing sport with all the kids and watch it positively impact them the same way it impacted me. Through Soccer Buddies not only do the kids improve their soccer skills, but they also build their confidence, discipline, teamwork, imagination, and have tons of fun! It is awesome to be able to watch and help the kids learn and improve as we explore the adventure of playing soccer.

I love Soccer Buddies and am so beyond grateful to be a part of this growing family.

    I will be continuing my academic career, majoring in nursing. I have cheered for eight years and danced for three. Throughout high school I coached cheerleaders at an elementary school, and started working at Soccer Buddies to teach kids to have fun, and help grow their passion for soccer on and off the field, being confident in themselves and growing new friendships with their teammates. I have grown my own strong passion for soccer and confidence in my skill set. I love coaching, sharing laughs, and new skills with everyone on the field!
