The San Francisco Seals
John’s English accent makes him stand out when you first meet him. When you get to know him, his friendly can-do attitude is what you’ll remember him for.
That, and for being such a soccer fanatic!
John is passionate about serving in the community where he lives (in the Haight for the past 5 years, formerly in The Richmond). He has taken a “gap year” (a year off between high school and starting at Haverford College) to be of service in the sport he loves. We’re thrilled he is spending this time with SFPAL!
John started soccer when he was 3 years old and grew up in an English family passionate about the game. Now, he plays midfield on the San Francisco Seals Soccer Team! You should ask him about traveling to Spain for a tournament last summer and to Denmark and Sweden to play tournaments in the summer of 2011.
What does John do for SFPAL?
As the Assistant Coordinator of Soccer Programs here as SF PAL, he says that no question is too small! He is here to help you with anything from a frantic Saturday morning call asking “Where is my kid playing today?” to an email asking for an explanation of the rules about when a ball is considered out of play or even a Facebook comment asking for a high resolution copy of a photo of your kid practicing drills will her friends you saw on our web site.
Right now, he is focused on pre-season work, like working with Field Marshalls. Once the season starts in mid-March, he will be your “go to” person for all things soccer on the weekends.
Don’t be shy! Get to know him now. Say hello to John by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, on our Facebook page, and give him a call at 415-401-4666. He really does love hearing from you!
