I offer a player-centered approach during my sessions with clients. On the first day, we will put your skills to the test and evaluate where you are in the major areas of foot-skills, passing, receiving, communication, heading, striking, shooting, understanding of the game, positioning, mentality, and coachability. From the first session, I will tailor make you a program for as long as you would like OR we can go session by session based on what you would like to learn.

I can help mentor anyone who wants to play D1, D2, D3, or NAIA soccer in college. I have the experience and know how to help anyone with the proper drive.

I have been coaching soccer for over 5 years, I started with 3 year old's and made my way up to 18 year old's. I am a US Soccer 3v3, 5v5, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11 certified coach. I have coached for the Chicago Red Stars Youth Academy and in my free time I mentor underprivileged high school soccer players who want to play college ball. Ask me anything and let's get you the skills you need to make your dreams come true.

Cat is a wonderful instructor! She is open, friendly, and extremely skilled at soccer. Her drills for passing, shooting and foot skills were easy to understand and have already expanded my repertoire. I'm a mid-level soccer player with a few years of high school experience, but my lesson with Cat has definitely boosted my confidence (and agility), and I'm already starting to see results in my indoor soccer league. Thanks again Cat!
