Stuart Barlow 

Director of Coaching
 

A life dedicated to soccer: A phrase that best describes me and my journey so far.

After growing up in the UK, playing for Hartlepool FC Academy, Stuart realized that a career in soccer would be a dream come true. Playing semi-professionally and coaching local youth teams kept him on the field and involved with young players - while also igniting his passion for player and coach development.

In 2010, Stuart moved to the U.S. to help lead the development efforts of UK International Soccer program setting-up soccer programs around the Midwest, helping to improve the opportunities available to young players and coaches.
