Soccer is a long-standing sport at Crosspoint, having started in the fall of 1992. When I began coaching soccer, we had to use fifth graders and girls to fill our boys roster. This 2015-2016 season we are blessed with a roster of 24 players ranging from 7th through 12th grade. I have seen a significant improvement in the tight bond the players have developed this year as well as the strength of their walk as young Christian men. It has been incredible to see significant improvement and growth of the soccer program over the years, and we are looking forward to continuing that growth in the years to come.

Coach Zeitzmann is retired Fire Chief for the city of Glendale, serving Glendale for twenty-seven years, fourteen of them as chief of the department.

When asked why he coaches, Zeitzmann replies, "I truly feel this is a calling God has placed on my heart. I love to teach players about the sport and what it means and, most importantly, what it takes to be successful as a player, in the workforce, after school, and in their walk as followers of Christ."
Assistant Soccer Coach
Taylor Nageli came to the CCS coaching staff with the 2014-2015 season. Taylor is a 2013 graduate of Moody Bible Institute, where he received a degree in Missionary Aviation Technology. His heart for coaching stems from his years growing up in Brazil. "I played soccer every day, and it played an important role in my development as a person and a man. My desire is that the young men I am helping coach will have the same opportunity that I had to learn from the sport and from the coaches."
