Why I coach for TKO Premier SC: I have had a passion for the sport from a young age, and have looked for ways to stay involved now that my playing days have slowed down. The opportunity to be a part of a great youth club and develop young players is very exciting. Soccer is a great sport to challenge athletes physically and mentally and I'm really excited to support one of the younger age groups on that journey!
Fun fact about me: I have two sons, Elliott and Owen and along with my wife we try to find time to watch English Premier League games on weekend mornings. I’m a big Arsenal supporter and we’ve been teaching the kids some of the chants sung in the stadium (the age appropriate ones at least).
Parent Perspective: “Coach Wade has not only demonstrated a strong understanding of the game, but also coaches with a great temperament that is both positive & encouraging for our young boys!!”
