Today we welcome one of our soccer coaches-Jesse! Jesse says he was “born and bred in Crouch End, North London but have lived in Stevenage for a couple of years now. I’m known by my friends for being able to ride a unicycle.”
He says he is most excited about “getting to work and have fun with kids for 10 weeks and having the opportunity to help mould them for their future lives. Also to see the beautiful North Carolina!” and he says the coolest thing he has done is “travelling to Qatar just to play Soccer! I got to go on a sand rally drive and ride camels. Also had the fortune of training and playing at the Aspire Academy, which is one of the best Soccer facilities in the world.”
He is really close with his family and talks about them here ” It is me, my Mum, Sister and our Cat, Paris! My sister lives in Leeds which is a couple of hours north. We’re all really close and have a lot of fun when we’re together.”
He is proud of his hometown (London) and says “it is the best city in the world. It has everything and caters for everybody! Definitely want to move back there as soon as possible.” He also loves Soccer but also loves to play Tennis, go on bike rides and go swimming- any sort of sport really!
Jesse had an amazing experience to play semi professional football for Tottenham Hotspur FC before achieving his level 2 soccer coaching certificate and becoming a soccer coach.He says he LOVES coaching children because he gets to “See the kids you are coaching enjoying what they’re doing and learning new skills!”
Well Jesse-We can’t wait for you to arrive for a summer of a lifetime!
