Mark Crawford began coaching youth after playing the game for 18 years and reaching a semi professional level, and has enjoyed teaching the game to both boys and girls of various ages. Now entering his 18th year of coaching, he joins the DMCV Sharks program because of the opportunity to truly develop players and by giving back to the game that gave him so many valuable experiences.
Some of these experiences include playing in several tournaments in Western Europe as a player, teaching the game to orphans in southern India, and enjoying the World Cup in South Africa. His passion for this game has given him the constant desire to become a better coach and help as many young players as he can.
He currently holds his USSF National “B” License and USSF National Youth License. Mark is a Certified Advance Sports Technology Facilitator.
