Brandon Borschel
Coach of Competitive Soccer


I fell in love with soccer as a youth, growing up in New Jersey. I went on to earned all state honors as a high school player and continued my career into college, playing division one soccer for Rider University in Lawrence Township, NJ.
After college I continued to play for multiple years in men’s leagues and had an opportunity to coach at the middle school level. This is when I realized how much I enjoyed working with and developing youth soccer players.
Currently, I coach the 2009 girls classic team and am working towards obtaining my D coaching license.

I have a true passion for the game and this comes across in my coaching. I give a lot of myself to my team and in return ask a lot of my players. I always ask for feedback and am honest and understanding in my feedback with them.
As a coach my ultimate goal is to bring the best out of every player. Working to develop both individual and team skills, to create a positive environment for them personally and for the team overall.
