Chris Rodd


I have enjoyed playing soccer throughout my life, participating on teams at the College of William and Mary, USF, Bryne, Brentford FC, and the New York Cosmos. I love the game, and have enjoyed working as a coach and technical director since 2008. I love teaching the game, and watching young players grow a passion for a sport that has meant so much to me.
