"I have been coaching soccer for a few years now. And it is so awesome watching these kids grow and become more confident in themselves. I love watching the kids progress week by week."
"My favorite thing about coaching is watching all the small wins every week. Whether it's seeing a kiddo be able to do an extra toe tap or score their first goal. The excitement of new wins each week makes me so happy!"
"What I love most about Keiki Kicks is watching everybody's personal growth arcs. From coaches fine tuning how to get their message across to quiet kids becoming confident soccer players to experienced players growing into game-ready talent, it's all awesome to watch!"
"What I love most about Keiki Kicks is getting to meet the wonderful families in my community."
"I have two children of my own and I used to own Keiki and the Pineapple, a kids coffee shop. I love spam musubi, going to the beach, watching tv! What I love most about Keiki Kicks is I get to meet new families and kiddos and watch how their skills start to form over time!"
"I love seeing the kids smile and have fun when I coach with Keiki Kicks. It’s always a blast playing games with them and meeting all their personalities. I love to see them improve their skills each and every week!"
