We would like to welcome McKenzie Creamer to the Soccer Shots Los Angeles team! She will be helping us in the office as our Administrative Assistant as well as coaching in the South Bay.
“I am excited to help kids gain the same rewards that soccer has given to me.”
Soccer Shots is a rewarding position for McKenzie as she gets to work with the two things she enjoys most, kids and soccer!
McKenzie was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. Her love for soccer has taken her all over the nation. McKenzie started playing soccer at the age of four years old as she grew up watching her nine older siblings play ball. McKenzie was involved with soccer year-round through travel teams, clubs, and ODP.
She was a four-year varsity high school player where she played for her hometown school, West Salem High School. McKenzie was chosen captain by her coaches and teammates both her sophomore and junior year. McKenzie’s senior year she moved out East to be with her sister in Farmington, Connecticut. That year her team took home a State Championship.
After high school McKenzie returned home to Oregon where she received a scholarship to Clackamas Community College for soccer. In her freshmen year her team won the NWAACC Championship. There she was captain her sophomore year as well as took home the MVP and All-Star Student Athlete Award. Her success and love for soccer awarded her with another scholarship to Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri. McKenzie ended her soccer career and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Business Administration.
Every summer during college McKenzie ran her own All-Star soccer, basketball, and arts and crafts camp for ages 2-15 years. It was there that she had fun passing down the family tradition of soccer and sports to her 15 nieces and nephews. The camps grew from just the family to the community and friends. Her excitement and love for the game and kids will carry over to the Soccer Shots team.
Please join us in welcoming McKenzie to the team!
