ABOUT US

Becky Janssen - Director

Soccer has been a part of Becky's life since she was 4 years old. With 25+ years of playing experience, 17 of those also spent coaching players ages 3-23, she has developed a true passion for the game. After finishing her college soccer career, Becky moved from the Chicagoland Area to South Dakota to enter the world of coaching at the collegiate level, while pursuing her Masters in Sports Administration. Her path in life took a "slight left" when she met her husband and married in 2007. No longer focusing on coaching at the college level, Becky decided to work with an age group at the other end of the soccer spectrum - players under 10 years old. And this is where she found her calling. Since 2005, Becky has worked with youth soccer players, and she has never looked back. Her background in both soccer and education, as well as her love of children, have played a major role in this newest venture, Soccer Sprouts. Becky hopes to spread her love of soccer throughout the Sioux Empire, so that children of all ages can experience the world's most beautiful game!
