Coach of the Month 
November 2017

20171106_135745 

Drew Hanna

"You are not a victim of anything. Get up, be a leader, and focus on what you can control."

 

Current Team:  Sparta United Soccer Club 07 and 06 Premier Girls and 06 Boys

Coaching Experience: I have coached 15 years in age groups ranging from U6 to U19 and coached 5 state championship teams.

Playing Experience: I started playing in 8th grade and played 3 years collegiately for Central Baptist College.

Favorite Soccer Teams:  My kids that I coach of course! I also like Atlanta United, Real Salt Lake, and FC Dallas. My favorite European team changes all the time as I don’t have any connection to one, but just like watching the best teams play.

Favorite Soccer Player: Zidane was my favorite to watch. I also liked watching Carles Puyol at Barcelona, he was the man!

Most Memorable Soccer Experience(s):  My most memorable soccer experience came when I was cut from my 9th grade team. One of the coaches told me I was too far behind and would never make the varsity team. In 12th grade I was captain of the Varsity team. When times get tough, I think about how I can work hard, be tough, and come out on top.

Coaching Philosophy: I believe in aggressive 1v1 play. I teach the players to believe in their skills and that they can hold the ball and play under pressure as well as combining with team mates. It is about believing in yourself and your team mates.

Favorite Movie: Either Home Alone 2 or Jingle all the Way

Favorite Food: Cookie Cake or Pizza

Special Interests: I love soccer and it is my life, but I also like to dabble in real estate and follow the stock Market.
