Biography: Hi I am coach Kian! I am a San Jose native currently in my senior year at San Jose State University, studying Economics.
I grew up loving the beautiful game and have been playing since I was Four. I played competitive soccer all throughout high school and into college, and loved every second of it.
Coaching has been something I’ve always wanted to do once I stopped playing competitively, so this last year and a half of doing this has really been amazing.
I believe it is important to make soccer both fun and challenging so our players can develop the tools they need to become successful both on and off the pitch.
