Coaching Notes

James is entering his 9th year coaching at Granite Bay FC. He began as an assistant coach before becoming a head coach at the recreational level.  He has coached 2005 boys on the competitive side since 2016, and will be coaching the Comp In Training (CIT) girls team in 2021.  James developed a love for the game at an early age while playing at the rec, select, and high school levels.  Locally, he played at both San Juan and Natomas High School.  In addition to soccer, he also grew up playing baseball and hockey.  He continues to play both soccer and hockey in local adult rec leagues.  As a coach, he emphasizes strong work ethic, teamwork, and a positive attitude while motivating each player to give their maximum effort.  He believes that the boys' development will extend beyond soccer and hopes to create leaders and confident individuals.
