Coach Spotlight - Candice D’Arcangeli
A former Division 1 athlete at North Dakota State University, Candice has spent the majority of her life around the sport of soccer. As a midfielder and forward at NDSU, Candice helped lead the Bisons to the NCAA tournament her senior year. Candice started coaching youth soccer while she was playing at NDSU and has been honing her trade for 14 years. Candice has been with Maplebrook the last 3 years and currently coaches our 2005 Maplebrook Girls Premier team. Her philosophy as a coach is to not only help players reach their full potential on the field but also off the field. Candice says, “The game of soccer has the ability to instill life skills in players that they can take with them beyond soccer and help them succeed wherever they go in life.” Her favorite team is the US Women’s National Team and when she is not coaching, she likes to stay active with her family and friends with activities like axe throwing, golfing, traveling & camping.
