Steve Adlard Premier Soccer Camps


The Team


Andy Adlard- Camp Director

Andy was under his Fathers expertise the moment he was born. Andy spent countless hours in the back pack and on the field while Steve was coaching. He unconscoiusly absorbed all of Steve’s ability to coach and it wasn’t long before they were coaching together. Andy started by coaching the same way his Father did but soon grew into his own. Although he adapted his own style and brand of delivering the coaching methods the fundamentals and ideas stayed intact. Andy has more than 15 years of coaching experience at a very young age thanks to Steve.

She is in the Indiana Hall of Fame and held the all time scoring record until last year, where after 33 years it was finally broken at Evansville University (Where she met Steve). She came to learn and gain knowledge in the sport of soccer and she would often be consulted for advice on players and tactics from Steve.
