After building a successful career in the software industry, Sam was able to get involved in local sports when his daughter began participating. His love of sports soon became more focused on soccer as he pursued coaching and higher education of the world’s most popular sport. Sam attended top level coaching programs and seminars and received multiple certifications including his NSCAA Advanced Regional Diploma.
He was awarded as “Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) Volunteer of the Year” in 2013 for support of sports and academic enhancement programs at Montera Middle School and the Oakland Middle School Soccer League (OMSSL). Sam’s coaching achievements include OMSSL Boys and Girls championships, and a U13 Girls NorCal Bronze Level State Cup Championship.
He has brought successful Mighty Kicks programs to pre-schools and elementary schools, as well as coaching highly successful competitive middle school and travel club teams in the East Bay area of California.
“If you want to give your student(s) a great experience playing sports and learning life skills, Sam Foresman will deliver. He is a gifted leader, role model and coach. Sam was a key partner with me on quite a few student-centered school initiatives. In addition to running the sports program at Montera, he was also my son’s soccer coach there where he capably coached a wide range of abilities. Sam not only knows the technical aspects of the game, he is also insightful, conscientious, collaborative, supportive and fair. I highly recommend Sam as a service provider and coach.” Nina Senn, Former VP of Academic Enhancement, Montera PTO.
After leaving St Petersburg in early 1993 to pursue his high tech career, Sam returns home to help bring the beautiful game to our youth, along with the life skills development needed for our kids to be successful teammates, students and community members throughout their lives.
