These are the words of Aleks Mihailovic, one of the great innovators in the American game.  He is considered to be one of the best game managers and tacticians in the country.  His knowledge, coaching skill set, and passion for the beautiful game are second to none.

He has done just about everything in the sport, most recently being named the Technical Director for the American Soccer League (ASL).

“Aleks is one of the most respected soccer minds in the country,” ASL Founder/CEO Matt Driver declared. “His knowledge of the game and vision for expansion makes him the ideal Technical Director for the ASL.”

The ASL is a new league, but one with an exciting future according to Mihailovic.

“The ASL has great potential to be an outstanding league because of leadership, such as Matt Driver, Mike Wheeler, and many enthusiastic owners like Jim Antonakas who want to be involved in a league that is dedicated to unique style and effective play. Matt has done a great job in implementing the look and feel for the league. The key to success in any league is to make sound soccer decisions guided by what is best for the game and the league first.”

He has also served as National Director of Coaching for United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) and played professionally with the Washington Diplomats and Jacksonville Tea Men of the original North American Soccer League (NASL).

“It was a league dominated by some of the greatest players in the history of the game.  To be exposed to this environment was an incredible learning experience. Having the opportunity to be exposed to details of world-class individual greatness and high level improvisation was one of the greatest gifts the game has given me.”

Mihailovic played alongside and on the same pitch as some of the all-time greats including Franz Beckenbauer, Johan Cruyaff, Carlos Alberto, George Best, Eusebio, and of course Pelé.

He is also a Jacksonville University Hall of Fame inductee and ended his career at JU as the program’s all-time leading scorer and was a two-time All-American.  He was the third player in NCAA history to amass 40 goals and 40 assists in a career. Furthermore, his 54 career assists still rank sixth in the NCAA all-time record books even after 30+ years.

Mihailovic boasts over 20 years of elite-level coaching experience at the youth, adult, and professional levels. In 2009, he was inducted into the Illinois State Soccer Association Hall of Fame. He currently lives in Chicago where he serves as President of the Chicago Blast Soccer Club, one of the premier soccer clubs in the Midwest.

Chicago Blast has won over 100 tournaments and league titles in less than 10 years against serious competition. A focus on player development has made this incredible accomplishment possible.

“Chicago Blast is a unique soccer club.  It has brought diversity and opportunities for players to be trained in a sound and positive environment. It has given many players the opportunity to be part of a soccer family that goes beyond just soccer. It’s a club built on sound values and principles such as respect, loyalty, ethics and the will to develop and improve individually and collectively. Many of our players have had the opportunity to compete locally, regionally, and nationally.”

He is also the founder of Soccer Made in America (SMIA).  Since 1984 the program has touched over half a million players and coaches throughout the country.

“The mission of SMIA is very simple, to elevate technical and tactical awareness and the acceptance of the game throughout United States.  Soccer Made in America is nationally recognized for presenting outstanding methodology for players and coaches.”

The USSF “A” licensed coach has been actively involved with educating coaches and players for decades.  He has authored coaching manuals, been featured in instructional DVDs, and served as a featured clinician at events across the country.

Mihailovic credits both Hank Steinbrecher and Bora Milutinovic as major influences on his career, something his players say about him.

“Hank came to our game when the game needed him the most.  I was also very fortunate to be introduced to Sepp Herberger and German football at the age of 20. It truly opened my eyes to the game and it served as the start of my coaching foundation, however I owe much gratitude to our USSF coaching schools for the education I was provided.”

What people love about Mihailovic is his passion and love for the game.  He believes in the work he does and believes in America as a soccer nation.

“I believe it is an exciting time in our game and in our country. We have our U.S. Men’s National Team going to the World Cup in Brazil. The acceptance level of the game in the United States is rising, and soccer is now the #1 played sport in America. We have cities with passionate fan bases starting to take hold and our youth and adult coaches are tactically and technically improving the game all over America.”

Mihailovic believes the U.S. is headed in the right direction, but improvements in the areas of environment and talent evaluation would go a long way.  He also suggests that coaches need to pay attention to detail in training and development.

“You can’t teach the game unless you know the game. I think the focus at the early ages starting at U-8 demands experienced coaches who can install proper fundamental blocks in young players. In most cases we have most experienced coaches working with older players and less experienced work with younger ages. We need to balance and re-evaluate this process in order to develop natural and fluent movements in our players at early ages, supported by precision in teaching technical and tactical areas.”

According to Mihailovic, more academy programs in large cities would also be a major step forward.

“Having more academy programs does not oversaturate talent pool; it becomes an opportunity to develop more talent in a highly competitive environment. When you have cities of 15 million people with two or three academy programs, only an average of 90 players are affected in each age group.”

High-level programs cost money and that is something that still needs to be addressed.

“Everybody expects us to be on the same playing level with the world’s best clubs. Until the financial situation is solved where development is fully funded for advanced players, it becomes a challenge to compete with clubs who have a true structure in place. For example, Manchester City has a budget of approximately $3 million for their U-15 academy program. Most MLS teams have a similar budget for their first team and academy programs combined.”

Creating a “winning first” attitude and changing the adult game are other pieces of the puzzle.  Even though he is regarded as one of the nation’s best soccer minds, Mihailovic is admittedly a lifelong learner when it comes to the beautiful game.

“As a coach you cannot stop learning, you always have to keep up with the newest methods and opportunity for new learning. I think if you put what is always best for the game first; the game will always be there for you.”

He knows how important his job is and not to take it for granted.

“Being a soccer coach has the ability to impact lives. Teaching life lessons to your players such as hard work ethics, discipline, and desire to never give up will help players develop on and off the field.”

What we need are more people like Aleks Mihailovic, a leader with tremendous vision, a sensible approach to the game, and literally a world of technical knowledge.

Korrio understands it is your passion for coaching kids that drives you. We also know that the less time you spend dealing with administrative, communication and automation hassles, and the more time you spend on the field, the happier you’ll be. And because you play a crucial role in our children’s lives, we want you spending as much time as possible coaching our kids.

Matthew Driver is arguably one of America’s brightest soccer minds. He is regarded as an innovator with a creative spirit and a deep respect for the game and its traditions. Driver has devoted his life to the sport and has contributed to the careers of players from all walks of soccer life.  He has been involved in every capacity, from coaching to management to marketing and administration, in addition to serving as a well-known author, tactician, and presenter.

“I was told at a very young age that I would be more successful as a coach than I would be as professional player,” Driver recalled. “I showed great promise as a player and displayed great leadership, but I decided if I wanted to continue my lifelong love affair with the game and continue to make an impact, I would have to go into coaching. It was at that time that I began to immerse myself in learning from clubs, federations, methodologies, and coaches all over the world in order to help shape my coaching philosophy.”

Driver’s qualifications read like a world map thanks to licenses from Brazil, Scotland, and the U.S.  Each of the experiences have shaped him as a coach, allowing the different philosophies to shape his own style for playing and coaching.

The Glasgow, Scotland native has literally gotten it done at every level from MLS to USL to NPSL to WPSL and everything in between.  He is best known for his time as the First Assistant Coach with the New England Revolution, leading the MLS side to an Eastern Conference Championship in 2002 and another strong postseason run in 2003.  His time there was truly a “golden era” for the club.

Driver also managed and coached the South Jersey Barons (USL), AC Diablos (NPSL and WPSL), Philadelphia Independence (WPS), Philadelphia Fever (WPSL Elite), Philadelphia Fury (NAL), and AC Crusaders (NPSL).

The Independence and Fever represented the highest level of the women’s game at the time, providing yet another opportunity for him to succeed in the spotlight.

Driver, who helped made headlines with the Revolution, is back in the news as of late. He is launching a new league, American Professional Soccer, built on the hopes of improving player development in North America.

“The league was suggested to me by several colleagues to share my sustainable business model and philosophy so that others can create the same opportunities for American players within their own markets,” declared Driver.  ”My vision is to create first-tier professional opportunities for homegrown American talent to provide them the competition they need. They need that competition to showcase their talent for greater opportunities either at home or abroad.”

Driver has learned (and taught) a lot about both sustainability and player development over his 20-year career.  These are two priorities for APS moving forward.

His experience in the private sector has helped him develop solid models and brands, ensuring his success in a number of soccer franchises and now a new league.  Dollar signs and attendance numbers are great, but Driver knows that the players are what the game is all about.

Finding the keys to developing players is needed for American to take a giant leap, or rather step forward.

“A player has to have the desire, drive, ambition as well as the technical, tactical, and physical attributes,” Driver added. “But in n my opinion, the most important thing is professionalism. Having a true grasp of what it takes to get to the next level and having the commitment of going about your business on a daily basis in a professional manner clearly defines a mental toughness. And having an understanding of what type of player you are and being the best of what you do.”

But the players need a world-class system and there is certainly a need for improvement in certain areas.

“In a country of 300 million residents and 5 million soccer players there’s only about 1,200 true academy players between the U-14, U-16, and U-18 age groups,” Driver concluded. “We need to create other types of academy programs to create more opportunities for more players to come into the system. Increasing the numbers of players at the higher-level coupled with experienced ex-professional players/coaches we should be able to replicate the same type of competition and learning environment for those players to develop. No one has the exclusive recipe for the development of professional players and we have many chefs in a large kitchen.”

You can see why a lot of people have taken notice of his ideas.  The renowned Canadian Soccer League (CSL) is amongst them.  APS and CSL came to a historic agreement just weeks ago, ushering in a period of strategic development for teams on both sides of the border.  Male and female players of all ages, from youth to pro, will be the true benefactors of this one-of-a-kind arrangement.  The agreement is far-reaching and looks to be a difference maker  in the North American soccer landscape over the long-term.

It would be hard (ok, nearly impossible) to find a professional with Driver’s diverse experience, especially when you factor in several years of high level work in the gaming industry.  It’s very clear that any player would be privileged to call him “Coach” and any organization fortunate to have him involved with their teams.

Matthew Driver is truly an inspiration for all those that love the beautiful game.

ISN Stars of Coaching Presented by Korrio – November 2013

Eric Kissinger is a player’s coach, one that has enjoyed the best the beautiful game has to offer and has chosen to give back in a big way.  He has the best of both worlds, playing as a professional for the USL PRO’s Dayton Dutch Lions and serving as a teacher and coach for the Miami Valley School in addition to serving on the staff at the Dutch Lions Academy.  Essentially he has dedicated his life to growing the game and serving others as a coach and teacher.

Photo Credit: Jeremy Blurton/Dayton Dutch Lions

He is someone that has built his entire career around hard work and determination.  That immense effort has paid off big as Kissinger has made a name for himself in the Dayton area and beyond.

As a player, he has been with the Dutch Lions organization since the team first took the field in the PDL in 2010.  He has been a “rock” for the organization, which has become one of the fastest-growing brands in the entire country.

As a coach, he has become known as someone who can get the best out of any player. He serves many roles: teacher, mentor, strategist, and motivator. Simply put, he has a bright career ahead of him on and off the pitch.

Powerful moments define careers and Kissinger has been part of some big ones, none bigger than facing off against MLS side Sporting Kansas City in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

“Walking into that big of a stadium, seeing the quality of the pitch, hearing how loud the fans were, it gave me goosebumps,” Kissinger admitted.  “It was an incredible experience.”

Playing week in and week out in USL PRO is nothing to sneeze at either, considering the league is home to many great players from around the world.

But there are special moments that happen outside the glitz and glamor of professional soccer.  One of those happened when Kissinger was an assistant coach at Miami Valley.  It was powerful, a defining moment in the young man’s coaching career.

“I would have to say the district final game against Springfield Catholic. It was two very tough teams just going at it. You could feel the emotion emanating from the players on the field with every goal or tackle.”

But how did Kissinger get here? He made it because of a lot of people helped him, but none more important than his high school coach Mario Carrillo.

“The man is the consummate professional. He always holds himself to the highest standard of sportsmanship, professionalism, and quality, while expecting the same from his players. He understands that you may not be the most talented person out there, but as long as you give it your true best shot, that’s all he can expect. A very large portion of my soccer knowledge and what it takes to be a professional in all aspects of life has to be credited to him.”

That experience and inspiration has helped Kissinger become a role model for his own players and students, in essence giving back to the sport he dearly loved.  The idea of “paying it forward” defines what Kissinger has become as a coach, giving back because he has been given so much.   His players are certainly lucky to call Kissinger “Coach,” having someone who is still playing and contributing at a high level in the pro game.

Kissinger knows how important player development is and has created his coaching style as a result.  It’s all about sharing lessons and experiences that players can learn from.

“The most valuable lesson I can share with my players is this: never give up, always persevere, and never hesitate to take action. So many kids are nervous because they are afraid of doing the wrong thing. But in doing so, they don’t realize that they don’t do the right thing because they hesitate to act in the process. Especially at the younger ages, take a chance, try a move, make a pass! If it doesn’t work out, your team may lose the ball, your coach may get mad at you, but it’s a learning process. Without trying things, you’ll never know what you are truly capable of.”

Playing and coaching for a great club like DDL is a privilege, considering the club is a leader in developing players.  Kissinger has bought into their principles wholeheartedly, showing great belief in the academy system that is paramount in the European game.

“The Dutch Lions pride themselves on providing a high level of coaching. We aren’t going to teach the basics of the game just so we can play kick and run and beat teams into the ground at the youngest age possible. We teach the fundamentals so that we can create a possession-oriented style from a young age. From the youngest to the oldest teams in our academy, we play the same style. It doesn’t matter who the coach is or which players we have, each team will know the style that is expected of them and have the skills necessary to implement that. Since we are more of an academy as well, all the coaches know most of the kids, even if they aren’t on their team. It creates a sense of community that is lost when each team is an independent unit under a figurehead of a name.”

That consistency and commitment to excellence has made the Dutch Lions a “mover and shaker” in the world of Ohio soccer.  The addition of a team in Cincinnati, along with an impressive operation in Houston, makes the Dutch Lions a force to be reckoned with on a national level.  They are clearly at the pinnacle of the game and plan to add several more franchises in the coming years, creating an even bigger national and even global footprint.

There is no doubt that Kissinger will be part of the club’s growth and success moving forward.  Kissinger and the Dutch Lions are a perfect pairing, combing passion and excellence and mixing that with high-level coaching and clear player development goals.

His growth is certainly aligned with that of the American game, representing a new generation of players and coaches that are bound and determined to make soccer “the next big thing” in the United States.

“America has an incredible untapped market of soccer players. Every time I see some of our football or basketball athletes, I think about how awesome it would be to have a target striker built like LeBron James starting for the U.S. National Team. I think that the potential within the next 5-10 years is promising. With MLS expanding and becoming a larger presence, kids are starting to be more aware of the possibility of a career beyond high school or college. We’re starting to see more kids want to play in college and even beyond. This will translate to a larger pool to draw from in the future. However, we need coaches that are willing to develop at the expense of winning sometimes as well. Lots of high schools just play kick and run because it’s their best chance to win. That’s not going to help anyone develop or get better throughout their career.”

So Kissinger is aware of the challenges he faces as both a player and coach, but he has the tools necessary to be “the next big thing” himself.

Korrio understands it is your passion for coaching kids that drives you. We also know that the less time you spend dealing with administrative, communication and automation hassles, and the more time you spend on the field, the happier you’ll be. And because you play a crucial role in our children’s lives, we want you spending as much time as possible coaching our kids.

ISN Stars of Coaching Presented by Korrio – September/October 2013

Hector Marinaro is a special player and coach who has done it all.

Marinaro is joined by fellow legend Otto Orf as they celebrate a championship in Cleveland (Photo Courtesy of Otto Orf)

He is a legend in the indoor game, finishing as the all-time leader in points and goals for all of professional indoor soccer. He had an jaw-dropping 1,223 goals and 701 assists over the course of a 21-year playing career, 16 of which were spent in Cleveland. He was the MISL scoring champion nine times along with being named an All-Star a whopping fifteen times.  Marinaro won the league MVP award so many times (seven) that they named the award in his honor. This was yet another record in American professional sports.

His colleagues, including fellow indoor soccer legend Otto Orf, are quick to praise Marinaro’s career.

“Hector has always been a special player, but more than that he was a pure ball striker and the most natural finisher the indoor game has ever seen.  If they pick up a fraction of his gift the team will have great success!”

He successfully joined the coaching ranks in 2002, pulling double-duty as a player-coach with the Cleveland Force until 2004.  He would then be named the head coach at Division III side John Carroll University in 2006.  He’s had similar success at JCU, winning the OAC Tournament Championship in 2007 and leading his squad to the OAC semifinals five times and the championship match three times.

Marinaro was named the head coach of PASL expansion side Cleveland Freeze in September, giving a new franchise instant credibility.

“Having Hector Marinaro join the coaching ranks of the PASL is tremendous,”PASL Director of Operations Sydney Nusniov commented.  ”If you look at some of the coaches in our league now you have Marinaro in Cleveland, Tatu in Dallas, Richard Chinapoo and Gino DiFlorio in Harrisburg, Bernie Lilavois in Ontario, Genoni Martinez in Monterrey, Mariano Bollella in Hidalgo and on and on it can only help develop the game when you have that kind of talent that you can tap as a resource. Not only can they teach the sport, but they give younger players something to aspire to.”

Teaching, inspiring, and guiding a new generation of student-athletes and pros is a mission for Marinaro.

And it is a mission accomplished, according to former JCU striker Jeffrey Kosek.

“Coach Hector Marinaro instilled values of assertiveness when holding strong belief, respect for all involved in the program, as well as the importance of positive team chemistry. He developed in players a winning mindset and attitude, and served as a player’s model for carrying himself on and off the field.”

Becoming a model coach wasn’t always an easy task for Marinaro.

“As a player, you can make a pass, make a tackle or score goal that has an immediate impact on the game. It was a little frustrating early in my coaching career to be on the sidelines and not to be able get out onto the field. As a competitor, I wanted to be on the field, but I have learned to trust my players and trust that they will get the job done.”

They have done just that and more thanks to the values that Marinaro passed along.

“The overall team concept is more important than the individual. In order for a team to be successful, everyone needs to buy into the team first concept.  Just like in soccer, your success in the real world will depend on others.”

The legendary player is always looking for his next challenge.  Being a head coach for a new indoor franchise and at a D-III college certainly fits into the challenge category, but Marinaro always looks for the positives.

“In Cleveland, indoor soccer as we know it with the boards has kind of gone by the wayside. We used to have 10-15 indoor facilities that played indoor soccer with the boards. Most of those facilities have gotten rid of the boards and are now just soccer facilities with kids training for outdoor soccer. We need to bring back the excitement of true indoor soccer back to the fans that used to love it back in the 90’s here in Cleveland.”

Marinaro added the the D-III level is great for student-athletes that want to get a great education while continuing their soccer careers.  He admits it can sometimes be a challenge to balance education and soccer.

“My rule as a coach at the DIII level is that if you have a class and practice at the same time, you go to class. The level of kids we get at JCU is tremendous. They have their heads on straight and realize that their education is what’s most important for their future.”

He clearly has a passion and love for the game, but cares just as much for his players and what happens next in their life journey.  While not many D-III players make it to the next level in terms of soccer, many make it big in the world of business and education.  Marinaro has seen many leaders emerge in his eight years at John Carroll and is proud of his players’ achievements on and off the pitch.

Marinaro also understands the big picture in the sport and truly knows what we need to do to get to the next level of footballing nations.

“We all know that America develops the best athletes in the world. Unfortunately, all the top athletes are playing football, basketball, and baseball because those are the top sports in America and they get the most exposure. Soccer is very much a suburbia sport where parents pay top dollar for their kids to play at the best clubs in their area. Therefore, a lot of inner-city kids don’t get exposed to the game of soccer and the opportunity to play for the top clubs in their respective region. We need to find a way to get the best athletes playing and training from a young age and then not lose them to the ‘big three’ when they reach their formative years. In pretty much every country in the world outside of the U.S. and Canada, most of the top athletes are playing soccer as a way for a better life for them and their families. In the U.S., they see football, basketball, and baseball as their ticket to stardom and a better life.”

Photo Credit: JCU Athletics

This is an argument that has been made for years, but hasn’t gotten much attention from the upper levels of U.S. Soccer.  All of us need to do more to make the beautiful game more accessible and more attractive to all athletes.

Playing a fast, fun, and high-scoring version of the game certainly can’t hurt. Futsal or traditional indoor soccer both can do the trick.

“In outdoor soccer, a player that is not technically sound can be hidden on the field. In indoor soccer, that same player will be exposed really quick. I like to play 2-3 touch soccer and in order to do that you need to have a good to great first touch. Indoor soccer forces you to play quickly and technically which translates into great outdoor players.”

So Marinaro emerges as yet another great coach that is making an impact on the game and his players’ futures, whether that future is on the pitch or in a classroom or in a corporate boardroom. The lessons Marinaro has taught will certainly apply in everyday life.

The beautiful game is lucky to have Hector Marinaro as a steward for the sport we all love.

We wish him well in finishing out the collegiate season and beginning a new chapter in the PASL!
