Craig joins Slammers having moved to the USA from England in 2002, where he worked for Barnsley FC in their Football in the Community Program. Here soccer was a way of life and not just a passion. As a head coach Craig’s goal is to develop a good technical and tactical base for his players. “I strive to challenge the players in a fun and educational environment. While I believe that results do matter to a small degree at youth level, the key to everything is the focus on individual and team development. Regardless of a teams status, it will never deter me to sacrifice my long-held soccer principles.”
Craig currently coaches with our ECNL Program having previous worked with Strikers FC and Laguna Hills Eclipse. As well as coaching teams with Slammers he also directs the ID Program that filters players from all the Slammers licensees into the elite programs, USSDA, ECNL and College Showcase teams.
Craig currently holds a USSF C License and his FA Coaching Certificate.
