My name is Brad Nelson.
Having graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a Degree in Sport and Community Development, I moved to the USA to coach soccer full time with Challenger Sports. I coached full time for 6 years whilst also undertaking an account management position for Challenger, which resulted in overseeing the fulltime coaching responsibilities for the Naperville Park District. During my time overseeing the program we helped educate new coaches, develop new curricula and the scheduling for the 100 team program. Then in 2018 I join Galaxy SC, also based in Naperville as head coach of the 2007 Girls Black and 2011 Boys.
Outside of coaching I love to watch and play as much sport as possible, mainly golf, tennis and rugby.

My name is Jeff Sampson. I have been coaching with Lisle FC for 15 years now.
I hold a National D license and have participated in many continuing education courses.
I started playing soccer when I was 5 and the love for the game has integrated into most parts of my life. I played soccer up until this year rounding out an almost 30 year career. Injuries have limited my playing recently but the love of the game is no less.
The "light bulb moments" are what make coaching so rewarding. Taking the knowledge I have in my head and transferring it to the players makes it all worth it.
