Jennifer Powell will have her grass roots license in preparation to take her team to the comp level. Last year she organized and coached an advanced soccer team in the Copper Mountain recreational league as a creative solution for her advanced players. Her organization and development of the team was extremely successful and gave her more advanced players the opportunity to excel. As a coach, she has an excellent balance between making it fun for her teams while keeping them focused on improvement. There is an intense emphasis on positive feedback combined with direct correction. Her philosophy is rooted in the idea that soccer, or any sport, is played because it’s fun to play. She wants her players to build friendships, trust, responsibility, teamwork, discipline, humility, confidence, and the satisfaction of achievement. These principles are the building blocks of success and the fundamentals of her approach to coaching.
