Meet the Team
Our incredible team is truly the heart of Twin Cities Soccer Academy. It’s their dedication, passion and talent that keeps players invested in the learning process. More of our 2024 coaching team will be announced soon.
Founder and Director of Operations
In 2019, when I founded TCSA I had a goal of providing a fun and educational experience for kids who are passionate about the sport.
Since the start, I have been thrilled to see how excited kids are to learn new skills. Watching them grow and develop their skills over the course of the camp has been incredibly rewarding.
It's been especially exciting to see some of the campers excel and become more confident on the field as a result of the training and guidance they received.
I am proud to be a part of a positive and supportive environment where kids can have fun and learn at the same time.
Thank you to all the families that have joined the TCSA family.
Head Youth Coach
Reenie is from St. Paul, Minnesota and recently graduated from Carleton College where she has been playing on the women's varsity soccer team throughout her time there. She's been playing soccer for 17 years now and played at a variety of different levels in St. Paul as well as surrounding suburbs.
Reenie has coached at Top Soccer, Central Soccer camps, and was captain on her high school soccer team. This is Reenie’s fourth year with Twin Cities Soccer Academy.
Soccer is an important part of her life, and she is really excited to continue being involved in it this summer! She hopes she can facilitate a love for soccer that she's been so lucky to find.
"I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and having a bunch of fun playing the beautiful game!"
Avery is a senior at Minnetonka High School in Minnetonka, Minnesota and will be graduating this year. Avery is currently commited to Augsburg University for the upcoming year. Avery is a strong wide player who can attack and defend well in spaces, she is a high character teammate who will work hard and bring toughness to the field. Also, she is a certified referee for competitive youth soccer matches and has coached for Tonka United Soccer Association. This is Avery's third year with TCSA.
These experiences have taught her to be patient and articulate under pressure. With a passion for the game, Avery loves to connect with players all around the area to unify through sport and create lasting friendships. One of her favorite things about soccer is the opportunity it opens to connect and bond with others. During camp, she is excited to help the players connect with each other and develop a love for the game.
Michael is looking forward to making a positive impact this year. He brings with him invaluable experience as a player for his club's top academy team, showcasing his own skills on the field. Not only does he excel in his own game, but Michael also dedicates his time to supporting his younger brother in building his soccer abilities. Let's give him a warm welcome.
Director of Program Development
Swen spent his days and nights creating a program that has benefited so many already.
These are his words on why he is a youth soccer coach:
"Truly wonderful the mind of a child is."
I see protecting our children as one of my tasks alongside competent soccer coaching. Our children reflect the behavior that they see with us.
It is very important to be a good role model and it is our job as trainers and parents to teach them good values and to set an example every day.
Values such as respect, truthfulness, fairness, sense of responsibility, compassion, gratitude, friendship, peacefulness, striving for personal maturity, help to make the lives of children and people easier to deal with.
The bliss of our children enrich our lives, keep us young, full of joy and positive energy.
This radiance in their faces and eyes, this joy that they express with their entire body, after a personal success and with the team, after every praise, before / in and after the training / game. That is one of the special moments and a big why, why I work with passion and enthusiasm in children's and youth soccer as a coach in addition to the competent soccer education.
Meet coach Daouda, a dedicated coach who values every child's ability and pushes them to reach their full potential. He strives to help them develop their skills and confidence on the field. His coaching style is not just about winning, but also about building character and fostering a love for the game in each child. He is a true role model for youth athletes and inspires them to give their best effort both on and off the field.
