Matt comes to us from Overland Park, Kansas where he was the Recreational Program Coordinator/Age Group Director and head coach for five competitive teams (U9 boys-U12 girls).  He brings a driving passion and positive leadership to NorCo Rush . . . we are thrilled to have him."

The coaches, players, and parents will see a lot of Matt on the field, either working directly with teams and/or coaches.  He will spend a considerable amount of time communicating with coaches and players. One of his many strengths is that players enjoy the game while developing within a community club.   He is looking forward to becoming a part of our NorCo Rush family. Matt commented, "I’m very excited to begin my journey with NorCo Rush. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone involved and helping the club grow over the coming years. I’m already confident after meeting with the board and a couple of coaches that this is a great environment for any player.  This is the type of club I want to be a part of and I’m honored to be given such a great opportunity.”
