Martin comes to us with an amazing resume of accomplishments which include playing professional soccer in Europe, UEFA A License and his Masters degrees in Physical Education and Sports Science and Psychology. We are very pleased and fortunate to welcome Martin to the family of North Delta Soccer. We know once you meet Martin and see what he has to bring to the Club you will be as excited as we are!
Please read below for Martin’s Biography.
Martin played soccer at a professional level on several Czech Republic teams. He was a part of FC Viktoria Plzen Professional Academy, Football Association of Czech Republic, Tj Jiskra Domazlice, and FC Zandt Germany. He was also a member of the selective U15, U16, and U17 regional and national teams. Martin played for his elite level high school team where they won the High School Championships twice, and went on to represent Czech Republic in the 2001 High School World Cup Championships. The same high school team also placed first in the High School Futsal Championships.
In addition to his experience as a professional player, Martin has also coached at an elite level in Europe. He worked as a head coach for the U17-U19 FC Viktoria Plzen teams as well as assistant manager and coach for FC Zandt German Soccer Club. During his time as a player and coach, Martin spent eight years studying simultaneously at the University of West Bohemia and the Charles University in Prague. He graduated with two masters degrees, one in Physical Education, Sport Science and Psychology, and the other in Physical Education in Sport. Martin also played Varsity Soccer for the University of West Bohemia during his studies. Throughout his studies at the universities, Martin also spent two years nearing his graduation doing research and analysis for his thesis. He has written two books which were featured in the Czech Republic Football and Training magazine and the Football Association of Czech Republic website. His first book was based on his year-long research and analysis on Offensive and Defensive Activities in set plays. The following book was based on another year-long research where he analysed and compared the results of successful defensive tactics in the 2006 European Cup.
Throughout his work and studies, step by step, Martin is proud to have accomplished and completed the UEFA A license. Martin’s interests and studies have revolved around the sport of soccer for many years. He is truly passionate about the game of soccer and his goal is to be able to share his knowledge and experience with young athletes, motivating them to improve and develop as players.
Player health and safety is a high priority for BC Soccer , thus it is recommended to err on the side of caution if ever in doubt in any situation regarding the health and safety of players.
