Welcome Coach Va Shon




Get to Know Coach Va Shon!  


I grew up playing all types of sports outside with friends. It was during the 94' World Cup that I felt a connection with the sport. I never watched soccer on TV before, and here seeing others playing the same sport I played was thrilling. I was so excited that I'd watch the first half of a match, then immediately go outside kicking the ball around missing the second half entirely. It didn't matter that it was a Chicago Summer, humid and hot, I was having a blast. I played rec soccer in my early years. My love of the soccer grew deeper when I saw the end of the Champions League Final where Manchester United came from behind to win the 3-2 against Bayern Munich. This is when I started playing travel soccer with Wheaton Wings couple of years before joining Team Chicago for a couple of years. This past year I played for Aurora Borealis in the USPL 4th division.

I wish I had a time machine that I could visit London when Arsenal played at Highbury and attend a match there. Those early years of Arsenal under Arsene Wenger were magic, to watch them play. It's the reason I wanted to coach. I wanted to replicate the beauty in which Arsenal played. I started coaching with Carol Stream Panthers before moving to Alithsa for 3 seasons, then joining Palatine Celtic for 2 seasons. I'm always looking for ways to improve my coaching ability from watching the men and women professional league around the world to taking coaching education courses. I've recently completed the USSF National C Course last Fall.
