AS SEEN ON:
My name is Erica
I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and soccer trainer (USSF C License) who works with youth soccer players across the state of Maryland. I am currently the head strength and conditioning coach for the Baltimore Celtic Soccer Club, and design comprehensive in-season and off-season programming to improve players' performance and reduce chance of injury.
I provide strength and conditioning and services to all athletes in Ellicott City, Maryland and Cockeysville, Maryland. In addition to this, I coach technical soccer skills to ages 7-25.
I’ve been a strength and soccer coach for over 5 years at the youth, high school, and college levels (Johns Hopkins). I work with athletes who are committed, hard working, and in it or the long haul. If you expect results overnight, we will not jive.
My philosophy is sports development takes time, patience, and work ethic. It's an oscillating journey -ups and downs, twists and turns, defeats and victories - that makes athletes resilient both on and off the field. The lessons learned in training help our kids both physically AND mentally.
If you're looking to become strong and powerful and more skilled, reach out and let's start this challenging, yet rewarding and dynamic process of athletic development.
