Hello! My name is Mackenzie Jaroch, founder, owner and head coach of MacRoc Soccer Academy. Thank you for visiting the site! Let me tell you a bit about myself.
I am originally from Libertyville, IL where my mother, father and two sisters still reside. I have had an amazing upbringing that I cherish everyday. I could not thank my parents enough for everything they sacrificed for my sisters and me; I will say, if it were not for them, you would not be reading this right now. They gave me the courage to create my own path through life, they taught me how to overcome life's many challenges and most importantly, they showed me how to dream big and never give up. To this day, they are my greatest fans. God has also found His way deep into my heart and I am gratefully overwhelmed with His Grace in my life.
Beginning MacRoc Soccer Academy is yet another dream I am chasing. It all really started when I began playing soccer at the age of 6. The years went on and all the sudden I was playing varsity at Libertyville High School and then graduating high school and playing at the University of Arizona for the Division I Women's Soccer Team and the Women's Club Soccer Team. In 2013, I received the opportunity to study and play at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. After a life changing experience, I traveled home and decided I was not satisfied stopping my competitive soccer career after college graduation. Therefore, I dedicated my senior year of college to begin training for the USA National Women's Soccer League tryouts. In 2014, I played for the NWSL Chicago Red Star Reserve Team. In 2015, I played for the Colorado Storm USL W-League Women's Semi-Professional team. I have also been fortunate enough to carry out a career in sports management over the years and have made multiple connections all over the country with sports professionals, coaches and directors. In 2011, I successfully obtained my United States Soccer Federation (USSF) "E" coaching license in Tucson, AZ. In June of 2016 I received my USSF "D" coaching license in Milwaukee, WI.
I began training out of college while directing and operating summer camps and small clinics for the Chicago Red Stars. I began to network quite a bit and in time I had coaches requesting me to come out and train their teams. When I moved to Denver to play, I continued to train many teenagers. Since moving to Green Bay, I have personally trained players and collectively coached teams while having the pleasure of getting to know a majority of the soccer representatives in the area and the wonderful parents of the multiple players I have worked with thus far.
I am an individual who wants to positively impact the world, however the realism of that is far fetched; but hey, we all need to start somewhere. Soccer has shaped me into who I am today and it continues to do so as I start each new chapter of my life. I never would have thought the game would hold such great importance this far down the road, but it has continued to open so many doors that I have never hesitated walking through. I am all about helping others, giving as much as I can and sharing all I have to offer to those that are willing to let me.
I would love the opportunity to work with you or your son/daughter. I look forward to hearing from you and I can't wait to get started!
