Coach Schumacker grew up playing with Busch Soccer Club in St. Louis, MO. He played high school soccer at DeSmet Jesuit in STL and Regis Jesuit in Denver where his teams won 2 State Championships and was runner-up once.
He began coaching soccer at a competitive level 5 years ago and enjoys teaching his players and inspiring them to reach their potential as players and as people.
Soccer is a player’s game and Coach Schumacker’s philosophy is to allow the game to teach by challenging his players in training with thoughtful games and exercises that allows players the freedom to make decisions, which they will do hundreds, if not thousands, of times in any single game.
Born and raised in Arkansas, Coach Hatley began playing soccer at the age of 4 and has continued to play/ be involved with the game every year of his life. Coach Hatley played varsity high school soccer in Russellville, Arkansas and due to the lack of opportunity in his hometown, played club soccer in Little Rock, Arkansas. He was also a member of the Arkansas Olympic Development Program (ODP) team throughout his prep career. Blessed with the opportunity to continue to play the game past high school, Coach Hatley played Division I college soccer at Missouri State University.
Coach Hatley’s love for soccer has always existed, but his love for coaching developed while working summer soccer camps at Missouri State University. From that point on, he has taught private lessons and coached off and on for approximately 18 years. Teaching the game comes second nature to Coach Hatley and he takes pride in not only teaching the game of soccer, but also the life lessons that are learned while participating in team sports. Being respectful to adults and peers, working hard and learning to successfully work as a team are just a few of the points he stresses to the athletes he coaches. Coach Hatley strives to make the athletes he coaches better people, not just better soccer players.
