U-13 boys season preview

ACADEMY: U-13 Boys | DA season preview

U-13 Boys led by Head Coach Dan DeGeer


What we’re excited for: Building a new team culture 

Dan DeGeer: “I am looking forward to getting to know this group more. After a few weeks into preseason, I have really enjoyed their trainings and games. We have been focused on finding our rhythm and getting to know each other.”

This group is unique

DD: “The team has a wonderful mixture of skillful, physical and smart players. Something unique about this team is that we have a lot of part-time players that play with us and our Partner Clubs. We have built a strong connection with our Partner Clubs and we will be working closely together to continue developing these future talents.” 

Fun fact: Mark Christie passes the torch

DD: “One of the challenges of taking over this team was trying to remember all the nicknames that [U-12 head coach] Mark Christie gave to all the kids. I am getting there slowly but it will take some time.”
