About the Coaches:

Varsity Head Coach: John Thompson (Coach JT)

I have been with TJ Soccer since 2014 starting as the JV Head Coach. I became the Varsity Head Coach in 2018. TJ has made the playoffs 3 out of the last 5 seasons marking the most appearances in recent history. As a coach, I have my National “D” coaching license and am currently working on my National “C” coaching license. I started my coaching career when I was 16 years old here in Colorado working for Colorado Elite Soccer Club. I played club soccer for Real Colorado, Rapids Academy and played at Douglas County High School. I then went on to play 4 years of college soccer in the Pacific Northwest at Pacific Lutheran University. Outside of TJ Soccer, I like to stay active in the weight room, on the golf course, and in indoor soccer. I do not teach at TJHS but instead work in the private sector.

Varsity Assistant Coach: John Thompson (Coach OT)

Coach JT invited me to assist with the TJ Soccer Program in 2018 as the Assistant Varsity Coach. As a coach, I have my National “D” license. I have coached boys and girls in Colorado since 1989 with Littleton, Real Colorado and Colorado Elite. I was honored as the Colorado Boys Developmental Coach of the Year in 1999. My entire coaching career was with Club Soccer until Coach JT recruited me.

I played club soccer in Washington State at Thomas Jefferson HS (Federal Way, WA), and college soccer at Green River College. Showing my age, after the NASL folded in the US, the only semi/professional soccer was the West Coast Alliance. I played in the Seattle Storm Program for a couple of years. When I moved to Colorado, I tried out for and was asked to play for the Colorado Foxes. Unfortunately, my wife told me no as we had children on the way. I do not teach at TJHS but instead work in the Healthcare Tech Sector.
