Geneva Soccer Camp is excited to have former Pittsburgh Riverhound Professional Soccer Player and Quaker Valley High School head coach, Andrew Marshall returning to the soccer camp staff for the third year. Andrew has enjoyed a long and very successful professional career on the field and has now turned his attention to teaching the game he loves. “Andrew is a fantastic addition to our camp staff. He has the unique ability to teach the game of soccer from his on-field experience as a professional soccer player in a manner that is fun and easy to understand,” said Camp Director, Gary Dunda.
The soccer camp staff will consist of current Geneva Coaches, former Geneva Student-Athletes, and other high character coaches who will provide a common and passionate soccer learning experience. Some of the student-athletes in Geneva's current programs are chosen as well on the basis of their ability to teach, demonstrate, and positively motivate young soccer players. Our coach-to-player ratio is better than 1:9, and all staff must be committed to high moral and ethical standards.
