Calvin Deutsch

A passionate advocate for the game, Coach Deutsch describes his coaching philosophy as “At the younger levels soccer practice and games should be super fun. The players should be learning soccer without even knowing it, and we should be disguising soccer development in the form of fun games. As the players get older, I believe they should understand the dynamics of the team and how the team is more important than themselves. This translates nicely into the idea that competitive youth sports is really just a tool to help players develop character traits that they will use in the rest of their life.”

As Co-Technical Director, Deutsch will provide planning and on-field support to our volunteer parent coaches in an effort to continually improve the player-coach experience.  "Through helping our coaches structure and execute functional training sessions we aim to provide guidance and consistency to the training environment."

Coach Deutsch holds a USSF "D" Coaching License.
