Chris Goodman leads Complete Game Soccer. He has served teams across the state as a head coach, assistant coach and team trainer on specialized topics such as reading the game, building out of the back and team defense.

Having worked for over a decade with Maryland youth soccer players of all ages, he develops a training curriculum based on player ability that focuses on development of the whole player across four quadrants: tactical and technical skills as well as physical and mental development.

In addition to holding a United States Soccer Federation B, US Youth Soccer National Youth License, Chris holds a Regional Diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and continues his education via NSCAA as well as the USSF. He is currently working on his Level 1 Futsal Diploma as well.


“We are what we repeatedly do. Greatness then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

Complete Game Soccer works with youth players in all zones of development, from recreational to elite travel players. Its focus is on consistent improvement and building on skill as a progression of development.

Soccer training with Complete Game Soccer develops technical ability but also helps youth players take calculated risks to foster quick thinking and in-game adaptation. This focus on technical ability and tactical application ultimately creates more well-rounded players. The tactical/technical approach can be applied to players of all levels by breaking down complex processes into consumable sessions, based on age and ability.

Ultimately, players will be inspired to pick up a ball on their own and make it a habit.


A coach is measured on his/her ability to build chemistry among a team and the success of his/her players, and Complete Game Soccer has helped train some of the most successful teams and youth players in Maryland. Here are some of the accolades driven by Complete Game Soccer’s coach & players:

  • National Finalist for 3v3
  • Back-to-Back State Futsal Champs
  • Regional Finalist
  • Numerous All County, All Metro, All State Selections
  • Numerous State and Regional ODP Players
  • US Northeast Regional Futsal Finalists
Coach Chris is focused on developing well-rounded players who can not only perform skills but react quickly enough on the field to use them when it matters. Training helped me move to higher levels of play from recreational to travel to college.
