Varsity Head Coach Jason Page
Coach Page, a native of Athens, GA, is entering his sixth year as a coach at Sprayberry, his second as the Girls Varsity Head Coach. He grew up playing soccer in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. His college career included two years at Berry College and one year at Georgia Southern University.
Page’s coaching experience, in addition to his years at Sprayberry, includes a USSF ‘D’ license, instruction at the developmental stages and select level during the founding years of Athens United soccer, as well as
numerous camps throughout the southeastern US and Eastern Pennsylvania. He currently coaches two Athena teams with NASA-Tophat Soccer. Outside of playing and coaching, Page is also a certified official.
In 1999 Page’s career in restaurant management brought him, his wife, and son to Marietta. After the birth of his daughter Page decided to change careers, enrolled at KSU, and completed his degree in Social Studies Education. After graduation he spent two years as a teacher in the Cobb County alternative program, six years in elementary, and has been at Sprayberry the past four years.
Page’s coaching style can easily be tied to his teaching philosophy and the values passed down by his parents who both coached. Mastery of both the technical and tactical aspects of the game are essential. However, even more essential, is team chemistry and a sense of community. Page values encouragement and support and believes that “nothing positive comes out of negativity.” Athletes are expected to uphold high standards academically and athletically and should model outstanding conduct in the classroom.
