Coaching Qualifications: E License, High School Diploma
Coaching Experience: I joined TKO in the spring of 2019. I have been coaching high school soccer for 10+ seasons. I have been at Loy Norrix, Parchment, Plainwell, and Gull Lake High Schools coaching both girls and boys. I am currently the boys varsity coach at Gull Lake entering my 5th season this fall. Along the way my teams at Gull Lake have accomplished the following:
- 2 district final appearances, 1 district title
- 1 regional semi and final appearance, 1 regional final championship
- 1 state semifinal appearance
- An undefeated regular season
- 1st ever SMAC regular season and tournament championships.
Playing Experience: I started playing the sport at age 5. I went to Loy Norrix and was a 3 year varsity player there. I also played with TKO when I was younger.
Why I coach for TKO Premier SC: I coach for TKO because of the focus on player development they have created. I believe all of our coaches are there for the individual athlete.
Fun fact about me: I was coached by current TKO coach Matt McCullough and played with current TKO coach Brenden Groggel in high school.
"Coach Matt Streitel fills in a lot of boxes on the list of top-quality coach attributes. He is an excellent communicator. Coach Streitel has a strong moral character. His character guides him in decision-making and how he interacts with players. He understands the importance of building relationships with each player. Coach Streitel is the kind of coach you want your son to be influenced by."
"Matt has been such a positive influence on our son. He looks to Matt for guidance both on and off the field. Matt listens to his player's ideas and strategies during game time which helps them invest in each play and the game. He consistently communicates with players on the sidelines so that they can learn from mistakes. Our son looks forward to any opportunity he has to work with Matt."
