Coaches and Directors

Program Director:

Lew Potter - Program Director & Staff Coach
Lew has over 25 years experience as a soccer coach and administrator. He has worked with and developed players of all ages and various ability levels, including; Club, Premier, High School, College, and ODP (Olympic Development Program). After years of success with older club/premier and college teams, Lew decided to focus more time developing programs to improve the technical development of younger players, while also bringing in and retaining more players in the sport of soccer. If we do a better job of developing players at 2-8, we will have much better players at U10-U16. Lew grew up playing soccer with his 3 brothers and now is father to 4 boys of his own - also currently playing soccer. Lew resides in Depew with his wife Michelle and sons Wyatt, Griffin, Austin & Leo.
