I’m Ian Tudor, the guy behind Portable Sports Coach. I started playing recreational soccer at 5 when my family to moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. As I progressed, I played on travel teams for many years. Nearly every weekend, I was playing soccer. As I grew older, I stay engaged with soccer and was fortunate enough to be in Berlin, Germany during the summer of 2010. I witnessed the World Cup along side my new German friends in the biergartens throughout the city. It is a memory that I will forever cherish.
Several years later, I found myself in Rio de Janiero, Brazil during the 2014 World Cup. I watched several games at Estádio do Maracanã. I can still feel the energy in that stadium; it was unlike anything I have ever witnessed before.
Soccer has been a big part of my life ever since I was a child. If I am not on the pitch coaching youth soccer, I am thinking about the sport. It is my true passion.
Over the last few years, Portable Sports Coach has grown into a useful resource for youth soccer coaching with hundreds of thousands of site visitors each year. Welcome!
