4. Previous Soccer experience & accomplishments:
I started my soccer career of with FK Omladinac, (Gradiska, Republic of Srpska) playing there from 1992 through 1997, which is when my family migrated over to United States. Upon arrival, I joined the youth system of United Serbians. During this time period we managed to became national 3vs3 Got Milk Champions. I went on to play for Marquette University High School (2 state championships and a finalist finish) and then Marquette University itself (Division I soccer). Before coaching at the United Serbians, I coached at the Racine United SC (formerly known as Racine Soccer Club) for one year and North Shore United for 2 years. Prior to my coaching career, I was a referee at the club and high school level for a few of years.

6. Goal/Vision for USYSC:
My vision for this club is to become a top 5 academy in the state of Wisconsin. With the coaching staff that we have in place today and the facilities (St. Sava & St. John’s) we have at our disposal, I am confident that we can put our community on the soccer map while providing a fun and safe environment for the children of our community to grow and prosper in.
