Kalen first started playing sports at 3 years old, and his very first sport was soccer. Football did become his primary sport as he played for 13 years and coached for 4 but he has brought that passion for sports and working with kids to Soccer Shots since summer 2020. The coaches that he had as a child inspired him to create the same kind of positive impact on the youth of today. With three kids of his own Kalen fully understands how vital programs like Soccer Shots can be to children. When Kalen isn’t out on soccer island he is often reading, writing, or gaming but he always has at least one of his kids joining in on the fun!
Noah is a huge soccer fan, but an even bigger statistics nerd. With his passion for the two, he has developed an interest in data analytics and forecasting. It is that interest that brought him to Soccer Shots. Joining the company in 2018 as an intern, Noah is now a graduate assistant continuing his studies at the University of Baltimore in pursuit of a master’s degree in business administration with a focus in data analytics. In his free time, he has developed his own fantasy soccer league from the ground up that he and his friends participate in yearly. Other than sitting behind a desk, Noah is an avid runner and soccer player who loves coaching with Soccer Shots as much as he loves his spreadsheets!
