Why I coach at AC Brea, "There are so many reasons I love AC Brea and many reasons why I originally chose to coach here (and why I continue to do so), however, in a few words AC Brea is truly a community based organization...this sense of community brings an amazingly close family feeling to the players, parents and others within our small town and there is something truly special about that...additionally, after over a decade of living in Irvine my wife and fell so deeply in love with the community of Brea that we moved our large family here a few years back and we can all tell you with complete certainty that moving here was a great decision as being residents of Brea has been wonderful experience and has only furthered our love for this city!"
