All The Answers To Those Burning Questions

Everyone's First Questions

Are You Going to College?

I have been accepted and will be attending Casper College starting this fall.

What Will You Study?

My major will be Psychology, and I eventually want to specialize in Sports Psychology.

Will You Live On Campus?

I will be living in the dorms. Talking to the coaches and Nathan, living in the dorms will make it easier to be a part of the team and develop team chemistry.

Will it be challenging to manage Soccer and classes?

I have had to juggle classwork and training/playing for 4 years now, so I am not worried about maintaining that balance.
Unlike high school, I can adjust my schedule so that during season my course load will be more manageable with the large time commitments Soccer will require.

What is the path to becoming a Soccer Coach?

I have done a lot of research into USSF coaching certifications and what is required as I advance through them.
Starting off, it is just a simple online certification, and then I just need to coach (at any level) for some experience.
After the first license (Grassroots), there is a progression of licenses with USSF that I hope to move through until I can get a Pro level license at some point in the future.

Current life plans

Associates Degree In Psychology

After Casper College, I would love to continue to play soccer at a 4 year school and continue my degree.

Bachelors Degree in Sports Psychology

If playing after Casper College is not an option, then I most likely will continue at UW. This is still a ways off so I have time to look into other schools and how they would fit my degree needs before I have to make that decision.

Get Certified as a soccer Coach

Right now I am just focused on playing, learning from the Coaches, and being part of the program to learn how a high level head coach and staff operate. This should give me a good look into where my focus needs to be after school to get where I want to go.

On to bigger and better things!

Thank you for sharing this special day with me. No one knows what the future will bring, but I know I will tackle it head on and do my best to make my parents, family, and friends proud.
to a bigger better future
