Coach Rob is married to a wonderful (and very forgiving) wife and has raised six children and they have five grandchildren! His family has been very supportive in allowing him to spend myriads of hours to build a club and environment like none other.
Coach Rob has been coaching since 2000 and operating successful businesses since 1997. This background helped when serving seven years as Treasurer and subsequently President for the Burrillville-Glocester Youth Soccer Association where helped grow the association to 32 travel teams.
This experience then led to the formation of the MACH 1 Fútbol Club in 2017, when he saw a huge potential for a “family-centered” premier club program where the youth player could get a higher-level coaching staff, a more committed teammate and keep the community feel many families love about town soccer. His hard work and dedication to the players and families does not go unnoticed and the club has continued to grow and flourish with 23 teams from the u7-u23 age groups!
As a coach, Rob has enjoyed coaching all groups. He has coached the very youngest where the love of the game is created and continues into his eighth season as the Burrillville Boys Middle School Soccer Coach, and upwards of those young men just entering High School. However, it can probably be said that he truly enjoys coaching the u10-u12 age groups where his experience as a father is so valuable.
