Wilson was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and moved to the United States when he was four-years-old with his mother, Susan. He grew up in Bellevue, Washington and attended Eastgate Elementary, Tyee middle school and Newport High School. He's currently in the Business Technology program at Bellevue College and grew up playing premier soccer at Eastside F.C. and Crossfire Premier. He's a lifelong football (soccer) fanatic and has supported Chelsea FC since he was eight-years-old. He's taken great inspiration from his former club soccer coaches as he has embarked on his own coaching career.
Wilson started his coaching journey with Titans FC mainly working with U9, U10, and U11 boys and girls. He was the head coach for the U11 and U12 boys and the 2011 Girls teams with Little Warriors Sports. He thoroughly enjoyed his time working with these groups. Throughout his time with Titans and Little Warriors, he fostered a learning environment for players to enjoy themselves and truly develop as young soccer players.
As a youth coach, he strives to help players learn to love the game, ignite their hunger to compete, and continuously hone and improve their technical skills. He believes that in the early stages of a career, a player must strive to develop consistency in their technique when controlling the ball (1st touch), ball mastery (ability to shift, mauver & change direction while dribbling), as well as ball-striking (passing & shooting). In every training session, he aims to maximize enjoyment, learning, and confidence-building factors players can utilize during competitive games.
Wilson sees himself as a student of the game, learning from peers and constantly seeking more knowledge to refine his coaching approach. He recently finished the U.S. Soccer 6-month D-License Coaching Course and will begin his C-license course this fall. Wilson enjoys every minute he gets to spend on the field, sharing his love for the game with the kiddos.
