I've coached both my son and daughter through many of years of NASA starting in 2008. I love soccer's recreational teamwork for kids of all ages and I am eager to help develop the NASA community in these interesting times.

Vice President

My daughter has played for NASA for several years and recently, they needed a coach for her team. I stepped up to coached her team and it was a great experience. I believe every kid deserves to play and NASA gives the opportunity.

SHANE LEWIS

Secretary

I have coached youth soccer in North Austin since 2005 and served on the NASA Board beginning in 2008.  I grew up playing on the rock hard "soccer fields" of Dallas suburbs in the 1970s, coached by parents who had never seen an actual game.

Board Member

I have been coaching with NASA for over 16 years, and have been active on the Board for most of the last 11 years. I am committed to NASA's mission of providing soccer opportunities to the widest possible range of youth players, in order to lay the groundwork for a lifelong participation in the sport.

CARRIE PATTON

Board Member

I have been coaching our sons' teams here with NASA since 2012. Our players have basically grown up on NASA fields together. When I am not on a field coaching, my main role is being an informal educator. For years I have enjoyed volunteering in the Austin community for various organizations, projects and youth programs.

Board Member

I am a NASA coach, passionate about soccer, and certified to train youth soccer. I support NASA's mission and I will help to accomplish it. With NASA,  players tend to be more creative, play better as a team and become a better athlete and person.

Board Member

Recreational sports can provide so many good things to kids in terms of camaraderie, fitness, overcoming adversity, and fresh air. NASA provides these opportunities to kids and, from my experience, has a holistic view of recreational sports that emphasizes health and well-being and personal development and fun.
