Coach Spotlight - Dave Malley

One of our more experienced coaches, Dave has been coaching youth soccer in Minnesota for 18 years. He has worked with a number of clubs including MTA and St. Croix on both the boys and girls side of the clubs and has spent the last 5 years coaching in Maple Grove with Maplebrook & MN Eclipse.  Dave believes in developing a positive environment for all players to improve their skills and knowledge of the game, while teaching accountability for actions and the value of have a good work ethic both on and off the field. Dave currently coaches our 2004 Girls Premier II and 2005 Boys Premier teams and we wish them luck as they compete in State Cup this month! 

When Dave isn’t coaching, he enjoys spending time with family and friends around the bonfire, playing bags and going for walks with his dogs!
