Springfield Demize Academy - Girls Head Coach
Demize Little Stars - Director
Tim is a native of Springfield, MO and began playing soccer in Southwest Missouri at a very young age. His club team played locally, but also travelled to play in various competitive tournaments across the state. In High School at Hillcrest, he was a three year Varsity letterman. During his senior year in 1996, Hillcrest, made history, advancing into Districts further than any team before. Tim is still playing and has played in various leagues in and around Springfield and most recently was part of a team that finished 1st multiple times in the ultra competitive “Over 30’s” league.
As a parent, Tim wanted to see his daughters receive proper training as early as possible. He started coaching their teams when they were 3 years old, Tim spent the next couple years as a volunteer coach developing his daughters and other players and keeping their team competitive. During this time the team won or placed in multiple 3v3 tournaments. Many of those players went on to play important roles on various club teams. After multiple years of coaching his independent team, he folded the core group of players that remained on his team into the Total Demize Soccer Club.
Tim has been coaching with the Springfield Demize Academy since Spring 2014. During this time he has maintained winning seasons and continued to dominate 3v3 tournaments in the region. He fielded 2 teams in the 2014 Republic 3v3 tournament taking 1st and 2nd place in the same division. His team was also champions in the Branson Shootout in 2015 and recently finished second in the local futsal league at LCS this past winter session.
In 2014, he took over managing the Springfield Demize Academy Little Stars program for ages 3-6, which provides a great learning environment for our younger players to learn soccer basics while having a lot of fun. Currently the Demize Little Stars program has over 35 youth players in the program.
