Coach Petersen
Coaching Philosophy & Playing History

Shaun Petersen was born and raised in Lavender Hill, Cape Town, South Africa currently living in Brooklyn – New York City

 

My coaching philosophy is rooted in the philosophies that I learned in my native country South Africa (SA). I started playing soccer at the age 8 until I was 25 years old. Along with teaching me the techniques of soccer and how to play the game at a high level, my club Greenwood Athletic Club is still the best club in our district. My coaches were the best and they paid close attention of the game on the field and off the field equipping myself and others with life skills. These ideas still stay with me today and I have integrated these into the philosophies with the youth.

From being a discipline soccer player, I got the opportunity to coach the junior teams at my club. I coached the U9-U11 teams. As a coach I led by example – I reminded the youth that they should take every day as an interview as you never know who is watching, so be respectful to everyone young and old.

I can’t wait to bring my passion that comes with lifetime of playing, teaching and loving soccer to my youth. My aim is to teach them the basic of soccer and how to have fun while playing this awesome game. The goals for the program are to cultivate a fun, safe environment where players can learn the game and develop to be great soccer players and people.
