Fox Cities United Soccer Club is a youth soccer organization serving the entire Fox Valley, including New London, Hortonville, Greenville, Appleton, Grand Chute, Neenah, Menasha, Kimberly, Kaukauna, and Little Chute.
My name is Erik Karnebeek (44), originally from the Netherlands but living and working in the US since 2011, developing youth soccer programs and coaching and training multiple teams in different age groups.
After finishing a Masters study in finance at the University of Amsterdam, I have worked in the financial industry for 16 years and during that time I trained/coached youth soccer teams in the Netherlands (all kinds of age groups) and got my UEFA C and UEFA B certification. During that time several of my players got invited into the professional youth academy of Dutch top 5 club FC Twente. I have played for over 30 years myself and have more then 15 years’ experience in training/coaching, setting up soccer programs and developing young soccer players. In 2011 I was contracted by the Dayton Dutch Lions as their Director of Coaching to set up a European style youth soccer academy and from 2012-2014 I was the Director of Coaching for BSA Celtics in Beavercreek, Ohio. I am very passionate about developing young soccer players into the best they can be, both on and off the field, and I am very excited to be able to have the opportunity to bring my experience and expertise to EFCWI. I am looking forward to meeting everybody involved and can't wait to get started and help develop the players to the best of their ability.
