The Huskies have a long tradition of a strong soccer program and anticipate a great future in the new stadium that will be opened in the fall of 2012. The boys and girls teams compete in the Minnesota State High School League and our boys’ team participates in the Eastern Minnesota Athletic Conference. The boys won the conference in 2009 and 2010 and are looking to reestablish their dominance at the top of the table in the future. Both teams are excited to start playing in their new home stadium this fall!
The boys are coached by Turner Neal who has been coaching at ISM since 2007. Turner is a USSF licensed soccer coach that has coached professional youth players in Germany and competitive youth sides in the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association for both the Northfield Soccer Club and the Eastside Soccer Club. Turner has also coached in the Men’s Amateur Soccer League and is the current club coach at Hamline University in St. Paul.
Tom Schmidt spent his first year with the ISM Huskies in 2011 and led the team to a successful first season. Tom has a USSD coaching license and several years of coaching experience with youth players. Tom was an outstanding player – ending his High School career as a captain, two All-Conference awards, and two consecutive 2nd place finishes in the Minnesota State High School League State Tournament.
The Huskies also have outstanding lower level coaches. Coach Aaron Van Hout has been with the program for several years and continues to do an excellent job on the boys’ side. Lead PE Instructor Sarah Totall has been with the program for 10+ years and does a phenomenal job with our middle school girls’ program. Teacher Michelle Olson has been with the program for several years and continues to do a great job working with our grade school girls as they begin to learn the game.
