Director of Operations
Dennis has been involved with SSL since moving to the area in 2010. With 5 children, he has coached 6u, 8u, 10u, 12u, and 15u teams in our recreation program. He has held the positions of Western Coordinator, Director of Recreation, and Vice President of the Board of Directors. He has held the title of Department Manager, Co Manager, and Store Manager in 20 years working retail. He received his Masters of Business Administration in 2012. He loves to coach and see his players progress and is excited to help take the club to the next level.
I fell in love with soccer in 1994. Watching the World Cup for the first time and witnessing the passion from the players, the fans, and everyone else involved was amazing. I signed up that fall and haven’t looked back since. As a player I enjoyed the non-stop action and how involved you have to be to play.
I started coaching in college and learned that most of what I knew was through self discovery. My goal as a coach is to create an environment where the kids can figure out how to solve the problems with a
little bit of proding.
Currently, I am the head coach for the men’s and women’s programs at Croatan High School. I took over the programs in the fall of 2007.
