Why We Love Where We Work
At World of Soccer we all show up to work every day because, well we want to get paid. Humor aside, we show up because we care about soccer and more important we care about grassroots soccer.
What makes our company different is Tony Waiters.
Tony has a love for the game. Even more so he has a love for the kids who play the game of soccer. His knowledge, patience, and great teaching ability are just a few of his attributes that contribute to making our company unique. Tony’s inspiration, excitement and expertise brings devotion and creativity to everything World of Soccer develops.
Tony has been a professional player, a professional coach, a teacher and a father who has coached both his children’s soccer teams. As a result of Tony’s well-rounded experiences, he creates coaching tools with quality factoring in all elements.
Of course he would not be able to get anything accomplished without his invaluable associates.
While Anne is crunching the numbers, making sure that Tony crosses his T’s and dots his I’s (too many kicks to the head as a goalkeeper). Victoria is trying to keep up with the youngsters aka techie gurus of the world, to transport World of Soccer into the 21st century.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. When you follow your passion, put in hard work, and sacrifice, what you create is limitless.
This manifests in everything World of Soccer conceives.
Victoria's love/hate relationship for technology & social media has helped World of Soccer get on the map. Although there was many a time you could catch her screaming at her computer, she was able through brute force & ignorance to figure it out. With technology moving at such a rapid speed, staying up-to-date can be a full time job (especially with all those 8 year old computer geniuses) but Victoria seems for now to be holding her own.
Player, Coach, Manager, Parent. In his years here on this earth he has practically done it all. His love and passion for football/soccer shines through every project he is involved with. Tony's dedication to the game of soccer, the players and the coaches shaping their futures is why World of Soccer and Byte Size Coaching was created.
Anne's impeccable organization skills is why World of Soccer runs so smoothly. Without her coordinating all the going ons behind the world of soccer scene, we are not sure where World of Soccer would be today. Anne and Tony are a great team, filling in each others weaknesses and growing each others strengths. Allowing World of Soccer and Byte Size Coaching to be the great influence on soccer that it is today.
Tony thanks for being such a great Coaching inspiration and overall good man!
We had a meeting with the U8 Boys coaches last night and there was much reference to your byte size coaching program. The coaches have found it to be a great tool! They love it! Just thought you would like to hear the positive feedback.
I’m the parent who volunteered to coach my 5 year old’s team because they had no coach. I was somewhat daunted by the task as I’ve never coached anything before. Your program has been great in preparing me for the task and has me excited about being a coach!!
Thanks Tony. Great site. So much information. I can’t wait to use this in practices starting in the new year.
You're a great coach. Andre is really enjoying the practices and the Numbers Game. Sometimes he get a bit silly/distracted during the activities, but he always looks forward to it.
Tony is a great coach, great husband, great father.
Tony was a great coach and I remember his great quote was that he didn’t practice the NASL shoot-outs because he didn’t believe in them.
Hi Tony. Thank you very much for coming out to Marpole and putting on this short coaching clinic for us. I found the session engaging and enjoyable. I am actually looking forward to both Kenji and I incorporating your suggestion on 3v3 World Cup scrimmages into our practice tomorrow!
