About Coach Knight
Coach Knight has a great passion for the position of GoalKeeper. He has loved and played soccer all of his life. He began playing as a young boy in South Jersey and currently still competes, year round, on two recreationally competitive indoor and outdoor teams.
Although he started as a goalie in the youth travel leagues of New Jersey, he experimented with other positions on the soccer field throughout his JV and Varsity years at high school in Elmira and Albany, NY. During his college years at Rochester Institute of Technology, he returned to his passion of playing goalie for the strong intramural teams both indoor and outdoor. From then on, you could always find coach Knight in between the posts, truly believing that it is the best position on the pitch!!
He found his true calling for coaching young athletes about 15 years ago in the local traveling soccer club. He has coached young players, both boys and girls, of all ages and abilities. Currently he is the Boys Varsity Head Coach for Schoharie High School. Previously from 2014-2017, he was the GK Program Coach for Voorheesville High School. Here he would assist the Varsity coach and hold specialize training activities for all of the goalies from the Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity programs to help them develop into strong keepers.Coach Knight holds the following certifications and diplomas:
USSF National D License – 2010 NSCAA Level 5 Diploma – 2013 NSCAA Goal Keeping Level 3 Diploma – 2015 NFHS/NSCAA Professional Development Certificate – 2015 NSCAA Special Topics Diploma: Training the Goalkeeper – 2015 NSCAA Player Development Curriculum Diploma – 2015 NSCAA Special Topics Diploma – Reading the Game – 2015 US Futsal – State Level 2 License – 2016
Guided by his love for the game of soccer and the passion he has for the position of Keeper, he is able to pass along that passion and his knowledge to his players helping them to reach their full potential.
