Mike Dixon Bio

 Dear parents and players of Dillsburg Area Soccer Club,

My name is Michael Dixon. I was born in Liverpool, England and I am 27 years of age. I started playing soccer back in England when I was 8 years old. I represented my local club team for a number of years, and was also fortunate enough to represent the team created consisting of the leagues best players. I also played for my school team, in which we progressed all the way to a cup final. The final was held at Anfield, the home of Liverpool Football Club, who are the team I have supported since I was a young boy. This was a dream come true for me. I also was invited to tryout for a former Premier League team Bolton Wanderers, and I represented their youth team for over a year.

I began my coaching journey back in 2006 when I left school back in England. I started taking my coaching badges and also attended college for 2 years to further enhance my experience. Between 2009-2011, I attended University for 2 years to complete a Coaching Degree in Sports Coaching. In 2012 I was offered a life changing opportunity by UK Soccer to coach soccer over in America for 3 months over the summer. The experience was phenomenal and I returned again the following summer. I was then offered the opportunity to coach over in America for 9 months in 2014, and I worked with a variety of different teams across various locations in PA, including Dillsburg. My stay in America became permanent in 2015 when I was offered a full time coaching position at UK Soccer. I live in York PA with my lovely wife Bari, and our two little dogs Hank and Izzy.
