"I had the opportunity to create something that I didn’t see existing in the Portland area; a soccer camp with an old fashioned “camp” vibe. Outdoors a majority of the time with a ton of activities and just too much to do in one day for even the most ambitious and energetic camper." - Tyler
Tyler is from Chicago, IL and as a youth played for Chicago Sockers FC before becoming a NCAA D1 All Conference 4 year starter at the University of Massachusetts and Valparaiso University. After his collegiate career Tyler played for Indiana Invaders FC of the PDL (now the USL2) for 2 seasons and then spent some time in Bolivia hanging on to the dream! He began his coaching career at the college level with Wabash College and then joined the PDL coaching staff for Indiana Invaders FC.
Tyler moved to Portland in 2014 and founded Balance Soccer, LLC in 2015. He served as Oregon ODP Head Coach and Regional Training Center Director for multiple years before going full time with Balance Soccer. He recently joined the Soccer Chance Academy Coaching Staff for the upcoming 2022 season.
Since 2019, Tyler has also served on the Board of Directors for 501(c)(3) Fields of Dreams Uganda and was recently named Director of Coaching. He works with the staff in Uganda as the club becomes more competitive and professional. Tyler travels to Uganda 1-2 times a year and intertwines his unique experiences and perspectives into his training.
He learned all about life with a ball at my feet and hopes to share his passion of the game and love of life with every camper. He has invited his two best friends to coach with him for this camp season!
