Episode 75: Shawn Danhouser Talks TOPSoccer and How You Can Make an Incredible Difference


This week The Coaching Journey Podcast is excited to welcome Shawn Danhouser on the show! Shawn is a TOPSoccer coach in the Chicago area as well as having roles with Illinois Youth Soccer and US Youth Soccer with the goal of growing TOPSoccer programming!

Our discussion today focuses on how Shawn got involved with TOPSoccer and why he believes everyone should have the opportunity to get involved in this great program. We discuss the formative experience Shawn and his volunteers have found working with the program, as well as exploring the powerful language we use when discussing these issues. Shawn shares his tip for any coach to maximize the involvement of any and every player you have in your squad, and it is a truly powerful conversation sharing a side of the game we don't include enough of.
