Nick Soutar

Originally from Essex, England, Nick has been coaching youth soccer for almost 2 decades. Nick played and captained both Club and High School teams in Essex before going to play at Buckinghamshire University in High Wycombe, England where he studied Sports Management. Nick started every game his Freshman season and won “Player of the Year”. While playing, Nick had been coaching in the local community and passing on his passion for the game. Nick stopped playing due to injury after his Freshman year and decided to focus on coaching. In England Nick coached in the youth development system of professional English clubs Wycombe Wonderers F.C. and Cambridge United F.C. Nick also coached the Buckinghamshire University team before he decided to take his passion for the game stateside in 2007.

Nick’s philosophy is that every player needs to want the ball and know it is okay to make mistakes if learning is taking place and the player has confidence. Nick also believes each player should play with their own unique personality. His teams play possession, attacking, high intensity-oriented soccer where technical players can be allowed to express themselves with flair and creativity. Nick has coached players who have gone on to win Texas High School State Championships, play Division 1 College Soccer, play for club National Championships within Liverpool FC IAA and enter the academy level at clubs such as Tottenham, West Ham and Chelsea.

Nick lives in Carrollton, TX with his wife Laci and two sons, Sawyer and Dallas.
