Hey there! My name is Coach Katrina. Growing up I have always had the passion for the sport of soccer. Starting at age 8, I joined my city's soccer league, made the select team, and then at age 12, I got invited to proudly represent and play for Alta Loma Arsenal FC (go Gunners)! Having the opportunity to play with my premiere team allowed me to excel in my skill level and led me to a starting position on Rancho Cucamonga's High School varsity line up.
After playing at the varsity level all four years, being granted with the Captain title for two, and making it to the CIF Championship game my senior year, I was blessed to receive a soccer scholarship to California Baptist University, where I graduated in '05 with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration/ Management. Staying in tune with the soccer scene and continuing my love for the sport, I decided to interview for the Miss LA Galaxy title... and... I won! So, for an entire MLS season I not only got to market for the LA Galaxy and attend every home game, but I got to give one of the most respected players in the world a high five... yep, David Beckham. I know that might sound minimal, but hey, coming from an athlete who loves this sport, it was pretty cool :)
Now having the chance to learn a little about me and my soccer background, I definitely want you, the parent, to know that it has been a dream of mine to share my love and passion for this sport to young children. To be involved with HappyFeet has got to be the most rewarding experience I have been given. To own a moment such as this, I look forward to sharing enjoyment, confidence and success with your child!

Coach Christina, Coach
I am a pediatric Occupational Therapist, so working with kids comes second nature to me. I joined HappyFeet in 2015 and have loved seeing the kids progress through the five-week course! I enjoy teaching the kids simple skills and having fun doing it. I have been playing soccer since I was eight years old and truly enjoy giving back to the kids. There’s nothing better than seeing the kids smile after conquering a new move.

Coach Sam, Coach
Hello Happy Feet Friends, My name is Coach Sam. I started playing soccer when I was 5 years old in AYSO. To play in a competitive league, I moved to a club team and played on Jr. Varsity & Varsity at Cypress HS. Soccer is a great sport that builds confidence and shows kids how to work together as a team. I am excited to pass on what I have learned. I’m full of energy which makes working with children a blast! See you on the field!
Hi! My name is Anna, and I am the Administrator of the Accounting Department for our HappyFeet team. With the 20 years experience I have in the accounting field, I am thrilled to assist all HappyFeet parents with any questions or concerns.
Soccer has been a part of my life for the past 19 years, when my two children started playing. I am excited to put my granddaughter in the HappyFeet program as soon as she turns 2. Teaching the fundamentals of soccer along with the positive input that HappyFeet provides young children, is what motivated me to join the HappyFeet team :)
