Els Theunissen I live in Holland, and have played for
several teams from 5th class to 1st class. I am 27 years old and I teach
Physical Education to children in primary school. I have played soccer since I
was nine years old, and I love it! In the past few years I have worked for the
Royal Dutch Football Association, as an assistant coach of women under 15,
district east. Combined with a project that encourage children to exercise and
do sports, soccer in particular. I would love to come to St. Louis and share my
skills and knowledge, and in return I'll enjoy playing soccer with you.
Joost van Elden I started playing at the age of 6. Club:
Avanti Twello. Maybe interesting to mention I played for Modesto Christian High
School Crusaders in California one season as an exchange student. I started
coaching after ankle injury prevented me from playing at the level I saw for
myself. Coached at one club for 6 years, Lycurgus Groningen, preparing talented
kids for a spot in FC Groningen's pro academy, also taking care of the Lycurgus
academy as a whole. After moving to Nijmegen I didn't coach the first year.
This season I coach a ladies team at Nijmegen club VV Trekvogels. Talented
girls in Holland's fastest growing sport (ladies soccer).
