Hi Central Coast Soccer Fans,

I am excited to be the new Central Coast Director for the Catalyst Soccer programs. A little about myself… I am 24 year old and getting married in December. I graduated from Cal Poly in June of 2013 with a business degree but my true passion is teaching. I played Division I soccer under coach Paul Holocher for four years as an attacking player.

While there I learned and developed as a student of the game in the 1-4-3-3 system. I first learned it as a player but a main stressing point of Coach Holocher was for us to be able to coach each other on the field. This experiential knowledge has helped in my coaching ability post-college soccer where I have coached high-school and club soccer, both boys and girls. I have been a part of many Catalyst camps over the years as a coach and I enjoy working with all age groups teaching them what I have learned. I love the game and can’t wait to share my passion and joy with the kids.

Chris Gaschen, Catalyst: Central Coast Director
