Kacey Burke has all the qualities that you would want in a mentor. Through her tremendous playing career at UNC, various national team environments and the professional game, she has gained the experience and the expertise that not many people share.


As a teammate, Kacey was always encouraging, competitive and hard working. She separated herself from her peers with her technical ability, and her comfort with the ball at her feet was always admirable.


Maybe most importantly, Kacey is a trustworthy and thoughtful individual and I know working and learning from her would be incredibly beneficial!

Kacey Burke was my collegiate soccer coach at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and has helped me tremendously over the past year on my path to becoming a professional soccer player for Taby FK in Sweden.


Not only has she helped develop my skills on the field and helped ease the transition to the professional ranks, but Kacey saw beyond the skill set needed to make it to the next level by strengthening my character and helping me endure any obstacles

I have had to overcome along the way.  Kacey has mentored me off the field and helped advance my mentality and confidence which has provided me with countless opportunities.


Her ability to network with her numerous contacts around the country and abroad has opened doors and prepared me to be a successful person and athlete in the future.

Our family has known Kacey for over 10 years. We first met her when she played at UNC. Since then she has served as a technical advisor, coach, friend and mentor for our own daughter. In our opinion, there is no one in the country who is better prepared to help guide young women through the college recruiting process.


Kacey has all of the attributes that you want in a coach and mentor for your daughter. She was an All-American player at UNC and member of the US National Team, so she has played at the very highest level.  In addition, she has extensive college coaching experience.  She understands all aspects of the college game including the recruiting process.   Perhaps most importantly, she is a person of great character and passion.


Kacey will help your daughter achieve her dream of playing collegiate soccer.  In addition, she will help your daughter become a better person and one who is well prepared to handle the sometimes difficult transition to college.
