of this award honors the person that has gone above and beyond when working
alongside athletes with exceptional needs in the TOPSoccer Program. Charlie has
fundamentally developed our TOPSoccer program and has taken the initiative to
promote our TOPSoccer program to the community via different outreach programs.
Charlie has organized and developed relationships with our local
FUSE organization (Families United for
Support and Encouragement) to help bring our TOPSoccer program to as many
families as we can reach.
Charlie takes pride in recruiting Buddy’s for our TOPSoccer
program and works with them to pass along the knowledge he has gained from the
past two TOPSoccer coaches clinics he has attended. Charlie coaches the kids in
an Academy style format where at first we are working with everyone as a big
group. He will always take the time to work individually with either an athlete
or a buddy to make sure they are performing the correct soccer move. Charlie
makes sure that even the littlest athlete gets a chance to have the ball and
get a shot on the goal.
Charlie not only is the our TOPSoccer coach but has spent his time
as a Board member on both Greenfield Area Soccer Club and USF Real boards, is
the Assistant Fields manager for Greenfield Area Soccer Club and is the Travel
director for USF Real soccer club. As you can see, his time and energy is
spread pretty thin, but nothing will let him miss a TOPSoccer event.
