About Switching the Field

Do you feel that no matter what you do, there always seems to be more you could be doing in and for your club?


You do so much work in  the organization, that you simply don’t have the staff, resources, time, or energy to work on  the organization. 


Switching the Field provides mentoring to help you fill the voids in your soccer club so that you can become the program that everyone wants to join. 


Whether you want to increase player and coach retention, elevate the level of your players, implement new programming, improve coaching effectiveness, grow your organization, or increase your bottom line, we can help.
