Kyle is the director of Illinois Skill Schools, Illinois' most effective skill-specific soccer training organization and has over 10 years of experience coaching young children. When he isn't on the field, he also teaches 4 - 7 year olds as PE Department Chair at North Shore Country Day School. Kyle also has a 6 year old daughter. Needless to say, he is no stranger to children.

Kyle believes strongly in getting young children on the field as soon as possible. It is so important for players to get a positive start to the game. Their first experience is make-or-break. 4 - 7 year olds are quick to make a decision on whether soccer is for them. We try to create the most positive, encouraging and productive environment as possible so we create a lifelong soccer player. Included in the curriculum are 7 key skills that are fundamental to skillful play.
