Coach Joe Mankiewicz
Coach Joe has been playing soccer in his home town youth program since he was three years old. Coach Joe’s family is from Italy and therefore his favorite soccer team has always been the Italian National Team, also known as ‘Forza Azurri’.
Coach Joe has always enjoyed working with children. While attending an AP psychology class in high school, Coach Joe was a teacher’s assistant at a local pre-school. He says, “I am truly passionate about putting a smile on a child’s face. When I see my students running and laughing after they’ve just scored a goal, it makes me feel blessed. Being able to make an impact on children at such a young age is by far the most gratifying aspect of being a youth soccer coach.”
