Meet Coach Nazeem Bartman

Nazeem Bartman South African Professional Soccer player with Stumptown Athletic
My name is Nazeem Bartman, I am from South Africa. Growing up in South Africa was extremely difficult if I compare it to my surroundings now. But in that time it was the happiest times for me as a kid. Regardless of not having any good fields to train on or even a safe environment to play outside it was still extremely special for me. As a kid I had to grow up extremely fast and be around things kids shouldn’t be surrounded by but I wouldn’t change a single thing about it, It has made me the man and the player I am today.

Currently I play for Stumptown Athletic and I am a forward/striker.

Previous Professional Playing Experience:
 ⁃ Atlanta SC
 ⁃ Vancouver whitecaps 
 ⁃ Ubuntu Cape Town

Collegiate Experience in the United States:
-Tyler junior college 
-University of South Florida

Before coming to America I played academy soccer in South Africa.
 ⁃ phantom Orion 
 ⁃ Ajax Cape Town 
 ⁃ Old mutual academy
 ⁃ Supersport United Academy 

Coaching Experience:
I started coaching my second year in America at the age of 20. It is my second passion which comes after scoring goals! 

One day when I am done playing soccer and hung up my boots, I’d love to coach academy soccer and hopefully make my way to college and then the Pros

Meet Coach Bay Kurtz

Bay kurtz professional soccer player with Stumptown Athletic
My name is Bay Kurtz and I'm from Crown Point, Indiana. I'm 24 yrs old and the oldest of six kids, the youngest being 8 yrs old. I started playing soccer when I was 3, trained and coached by my dad until I was 14. From there, I went on to play ODP, for two MLS academies, three D1 college soccer programs and now at the professional level. 

My dream, for as long as I can remember, has always been to play soccer professionally. Over the years I have watched my dad train and develop players both on and off the pitch. Naturally, I have developed a passion to do the same. Since the age of 17, I have been running my own team training sessions, as well as 1on1 and small group sessions. 

 My passion is to help cultivate a player's love for the game through proper training, to push players to be the best they can be, and above all to watch them develop into both better players and better people. 

My goal is to provide training that will develop a player's individual skillset and knowledge of the game, while challenging and encouraging them to pursue their own personal playing aspirations.

- 2020: Current player for Stumptown Athletic
- 2019: Played professionally in Australia for Olympia FC Warriors

The Power of Creativity
It's no secret that creative, deceptive dribblers and quality goal scorers like Messi, Iniesta, Neymar, Ronaldo, Alex Morgan, Tobin Heath and others are highly desirable skills especially in the modern soccer game. 

By creating the right training environment where players focus on developing skills, go man against man, girl against girl we are able to create an incredibly competitive, high pressure, and importantly, fun environment where creative development is allowed to grow and flourish.

The repetition of dribbling, fakes and moves, fast footwork under pressure and the ability to shoot at a small target area allows players to develop at a rate 4-5x faster than traditional soccer training.
Building Confident Leaders 
Our role at Charlotte Soccer Factory is simple we work with players of all skill levels and abilities, be it recreational, club, high school and beyond who aren't satisfied with their current development, or aren't confident in their current abilities on and off the pitch and provide them with a designed training environment and methodology to help them achieve excellence.

We focus on engaging, empowering and energizing kids to be creative, confident, risk taking, intelligent leaders on and off the field.
