In Episode 26 of #Onthetouchline, Jason Broadwater @SoccerCoachJB talks to Skye Eddy Bruce, @SkyeEddyBruce. She is the founder of the Soccer Parenting Association. The mission of the Soccer Parenting Association is to inspire players by empowering parents. We believe a strong and supportive community of level-headed and like-minded parents and coaches will inspire players. We believe a more collaborative environment between coach, parent, club, and player is in the best interest of player development.  We believe when parents seek information about how to best support their player, great things will happen. We believe youth soccer parents will be difference makers when it comes to improving the game. Special Offer for my listeners: Go to https://www.duktigbrand.com/ Place your order.

Episode 25: Bryan Gettman, @CoachBryanG
In Episode 25 of #Onthetouchline, Jason Broadwater @SoccerCoachJB talks to Bryan Gettman, @CoachBryanG After every Dark Age is a Renaissance. That is a phrase I heard when I was an undergraduate student. Some times you don't realize you're going through a rough patch until you're out of it. Bryan Gettman is experiencing that renaissance right now as a coach. Growing up in a military family, Gettman lived all over the United States and had periods of his life where he entered and exited the game of soccer. It wasn't until his daughter started playing that he found his calling as a coach. He is currently the head boys coach at Spring Grove Area High School near York, PA. He also coaches at the club level for FC Ballyhoo. Gettman talks about his journey and how he found Spartan Races as a hobby during a rough stretch in his life. I think you'll find Bryan relatable and resembling a coach you might know in your local community. We need more Bryan Gettman's in our game.

Episode 24: Aaron Rodgers, @OhioSoccerCoach, @OhioWSoccer
In Episode 24 of #Onthetouchline, Jason Broadwater @SoccerCoachJB talks to Aaron Rodgers, @OhioSoccerCoach. How do you make people feel?  That is a phrase Aaron Rodgers, the head women’s soccer coach at Ohio University has in his Twitter profile. I lead with this question to start our conversation and how he developed this mindset as a coach. Building a desirable culture is something each and everyone one of us as coaches strives for with our teams or programs. It is something players seek when selecting a program or club. Here’s a quote from Rodgers. “John Wooden said this, “I want the players to be the best athlete for the team – not the best athlete on the team.” I admire that Aaron has played the long game of getting to the Division 1 level as a coach.  He volunteered, worked in the club game, worked his way up the college ranks.  If you’ve been following me on social media you’ll know this love affair that has developed in coaching goal keepers. I’m taking steps to enhance my knowledge and licensure when it comes to the position. Aaron was a goalkeeper in his playing days. He talks about how this has benefited him as a coach throughout his career and how this has helped him understand and read the game.

Episode 23: Chris Kessell, @TheChrisKessell
In Episode 23 of #Onthetouchline, Jason Broadwater @SoccerCoachJB talks to Chris Kessell, @TheChrisKessell. “Black kids in my neighborhood don’t play soccer.” That is the thinking Chris Kessell has encountered throughout his career. Kessell is the president and a coach at West Side Soccer Club in Charleston, WV and works with primarily under-served and under-represented communities – mostly African American, rural, and low-income. Chris Kessell wants each of his players to make soccer a lifelong activity. Black, white, Hispanic doesn’t matter. Soccer isn’t just for some – it is for all. He helped lead the creation of a futsal court to start a futsal meet up program on Friday’s in the Charleston community. He is bringing soccer to youth players who may have never touched a soccer ball before. It is no secret – I am drawn to passionate, all-in coaches. Chris Kessell cares deeply about soccer in the United States and soccer within the state of West Virginia. He has been an outspoken critic of the United States Soccer Federation. He has been an advocate for promotion/relegation as a normal way of life for us as soccer fans here in the US. And, he ran for the US Soccer Federation Vice Presidency last fall.
