  • Assistant Coach
    Dave has coached all levels of boys' and girls' soccer over the years. He began coaching in 2000, with a short time away from the game 2016 - 2018. He remains a student of the game learning tactics from each coach he works with. Being outside in New England during the fall season is a highlight for Dave and enjoys teaching a beautiful game to players during the first few months of their school year at NMH. Dave played goalie back in his glory days of high school, so coaching shooters or defenders along with goalkeepers is how he contributes to player growth during the season. "I am very excited to join the GV Soccer Program this year and working with Coach Aldred and Coach Thurber is fun and rewarding every day."
