Thomas Goodman

My coaching philosophy is to give my players the tools in which they can use to become creative and successful players and model citizens through having fun and creating a passion for the game.

I have nineteen years of experience coaching youth soccer in England and the United States. I have a passion for creating highly educated, creative and motivated athletes with an unshakable sense of self-worth. I am a dedicated and well-liked coach with a reputation for building confidence, morale and skills to create winning teams.

I am currently the girls varsity soccer coach at Tecumseh High School, in my first year we finished 3rd in the league, winning 9 games. I was awarded the 2017 County Coach of the Year Award

In 2017 I was the volunteer assistant as Siena Heights University for the Men's program, 4 games into the season I was given the team as the interim head coach and went 6-6-0 for that year coaching the team to a stadium record of 6 wins and having the best season for 8 years.

Before moving to Michigan I coached at at Willamette High School for five years, and in the time when I served as the girls JV soccer coach the team only lost four games in three years. In addition, I was the boys varsity soccer coach for the past three years, and under my leadership they won the league for the first time in its 63-year history! I was awarded the 2011 and 2012 MWL Coach of the Year and 2011 Oregon State 5a Coach of the Year.

I earned my BA in Education Foundations from the University of Oregon and Master's Degree in Recreation and Sport Pedagogy with a focus in soccer coaching from Ohio University. I am currently working towards my Doctorate in Higher Education and Leadership at Concordia University. In addition, I have two high level coaching licenses - my UEFA A and USSF B and I plan on receiving my UEFA Pro license in 2019.
