Jakub Opelt - Coach Kuba

My name is Jakub Opelt. I am known at Lindenhurst Area Soccer Club as Coach Kuba. I am 22 years
old and coach 3 teams at LASC which are:

U10 girls

U10 Boys select

U13 girls select

I was born in Poland and lived there for 10 years of my life before me and my family (parents and
older brother) moved to England. I have always been very passionate about soccer/football starting
my own adventure with the sport at the age of 5!

I am a very happy and energetic individual. I love working out and listening to music, but my biggest
passion is and has always been soccer. Every day I wake up happy and grateful to be where I am
today, and I am very excited for the future.

I will be graduating with an honour’s degree in soccer coaching and development this winter. I have
completed my FA level 1 & 2 football coaching badges. Furthermore, Last year I was a part of a UEFA
B licence in Wales which was a fantastic experience. I have been coaching for 5 years and I’ve loved
every second of it.

The past fall season (2019) was my first ever season coaching at a club team, having the role of a
head coach in charge of my own teams and I am very grateful to have had that opportunity. All 3
teams improved as the season went on and I am proud of all my players for the goals they have
achieved individually as well as improvement of the level of soccer we are playing as teams.

The year 2020 will be my 3rd year of coaching in the U.S and I am very excited to see what the future
holds for me and my teams as well as the club itself.
