We caught up with former Bundesliga and US Mens National Team star Tony Sanneh and Gopher Soccer Head Coach Stefanie Golan following their diplomatic trip to Kenya. We talk about connecting with kids across the world, Tony's recently awarded Bush Fellowship, the Gophers spring season, and how the game is growing in Minnesota.

When BV United was created through the merger of two clubs, they also took on a new clear principle to operate under: all girls teams would be coached by female coaches. We sat down with Technical Director Greg Holker, Director of Girls Coaching Jen Larrick, and Coach Taylor Greathouse to talk about what it means for girls to be able to see themselves in their coaches, how to develop a pipeline of great coaches, how other clubs can take the same step.
