About Travis McCausland:

Just to let everyone know a little bit about myself, I have been married for 15 years and we have three wonderful children.  I was medically retired from the United States Army in 2011 and have been coaching soccer for 9 years, five of which have been with the Arsenal FC Club.  I strive for maximum growth and development of all my players while giving them life skills they can carry with them beyond the game of soccer.  It is important to be set up for practice and ready to go before the first player arrives to the pitch.  I will be the first one at the pitch and the last one to leave so when the players arrive I can learn a little about them to better know them, and possibly do some one on one training with them before practice begins. The teams that the Arsenal FC organization assembles are always professional and very talented.  I encourage any 2002 born young athlete that may possess the technical skills needed for the advancement of their young careers to contact our club and request a tryout.  We guarantee the tryouts will be fair, very rigorous, and a impartial assessment will be conducted.  I look forward to the future training of your player!  Go Arsenal!
