Mission:
Coach Sean feels passionate about developing his players both on and off the field. He says it's not just about winning.

Coach believes FC United gives players the best opportunity for youth soccer on the North Shore of Chicago due to the community they have created and the resources they have available.

Coach Sean's Piece of Advice:
No player has a ceiling in their development. To have a ceiling means a player won't work harder to keep improving. A player holds the cards in how far they go in soccer and how fast they develop.
