Allan Brownlie

Allan Brownlie

Director of Operations

Hi! I’m Coach Allan.  I was born and raised in a small seaside town in Yorkshire, England called Scarborough.   I have been in the US since September 2019, living in Crown Point, Indiana with my wife Amy and mad rescue pup Barnaby. 

 

Prior to moving here I was a property Lawyer in the UK and took the opportunity to change career to do something I love and decided to coach Soccer (yes, I still want to call it football!) to kids that make me smile, every single day!!  I played all through school and with my local teams until I was in my 30’s. 

When I’m not coaching I enjoy reading, trips to the theatre, walking the dog and playing pickleball (yes, that really is a thing!).
