As a parent and a business professional, Kevin has experienced the ins and outs of youth sports and the youth sports ecosystem. With those life and professional experiences, Kevin joined the NW ELITE FC board to make a difference and create an experience our children will enjoy and develop as soccer players and as people.
Kevin has raised four lovely young women, and has experienced the youth sports culture in all its glory personally via his kids and his own experiences as a youth. He understands the value of "clubs" and the impact they have on youth. Kevin is excited that he can give something back to NW ELITE FC in the sincere hope that the experience produced from playing soccer will forever be a positive one for every individual who participates in the process. Player, Parent, and Family alike.
