Opportunities they come and go and for a High School girls and boys varsity soccer coach an opportunity came to life. After the 2017 boys soccer season with Hawkeyes finishing 7-7-4 and a disappointing first round of districts ending in a lost, Robinson’s opportunity comes knocking on the door.

Tyler Robinson a teacher at Hamilton High School, has a different passion then just teaching it is coaching.

“I love every aspect of coaching. It’s my biggest passion. The one aspect that stands out though is the constant, yearly challenge of trying to figure out the “puzzle” of the team”

As a head coach for a varsity soccer teams at hamilton with being known for being a tough team to go against, coach Tyler Robinson gets his shot at this opportunity that he describes as “The opportunity to coach at Hope has really been surreal. It’s a win-win situation: learning from the best in my backyard and then applying lessons learned to my passion as head coach at Hamilton!”

As coach Tyler Robinson went to coach the boys Hope college soccer team for the 2018 soccer season after getting signed to go coach at Hope in March 2018. Coach Tyler Robinson is ready to take on the coaching position after having had much success with coaching for the boys and girls soccer teams for the Hawkeyes, now it’s was time for him to take his successfulness to the next level, college ball.

With coach Tyler Robinson showing more and more growth in coaching each year Robinson leaves the Hawkeyes to go to Hope.

With all the hard work and extra time spent during the off-season coach Robinson was the best applicant for the job. When asked what he does during the off-season with the hawkeyes to make them better he said, “During the winter, we have three days a week of after-school conditioning (one day in which seniors lead the workout) as well as weekly “open gym” session where girls can simply run up and down the court and play soccer.”

Robinson is an assistant coach at Hope working with some the greatest coaches one of them being Dave Brandt. Coach Tyler Robinson said, “each and every day was definitely a highlight.”  working with Dave Brandt and working everyday with what he specialized in which was goalkeeping.

Although coach robinson would missed the boys soccer season for the Hawkeyes, he will be able to pick up some more techniques and skill to bring back to Hamilton for the girls soccer season in 2019.

“Some of the stuff we had already done at the High School varsity girls soccer level simply was reaffirmed having worked at Hope, but I definitely picked up some specific pointers: ideas for team-bonding/team-building/team-motivation, intentional emphasis on one-and-two-touch play, passing patterns, set play design, coaching demeanor, etc.”

With having a great first season with the Dutch, working with the goalies he was happy to say,  “the crew of three goalkeepers that I worked with all season did everything I asked of them, and it was fun to watch them grow in multiple ways.”

Now with coach Robinson’s has returned for the girls soccer season, with the girls not starting out so great at first they have started to bounce back with only five more games until the end off the regular season with an overall record 6-4-1 coach Robinson has this to say about the team “The season hasn’t gone exactly as planned thus far in the W/L column BUT we play a tough overall schedule, are finally getting healthy, and the girls are getting more and more confident–especially some new faces on the team who are playing new positions on the field. The future looks bright!”

With the postseason coming up fast here’s what he has to say, ”We arguably have the best chance at post-season success this season than we’ve ever had since i’ve been the head coach–girl’s or boy’s soccer. We are super excited and motivated for what’s to come.”

With the season closing in upon us with postseason coming up, that just means that the boys season is just getting closer and closer.

“I do miss the boy’s soccer program at Hamilton. For sure. If I could do both–Hope and Hamilton–in the fall, I would!”

Sadly coach Robinson will not be returning for the Hawkeyes for next years boys soccer season. Coach Robinson is looking forward to still being an assistant coach at Hope for the upcoming season in 2019 and will be learning more about the game and more about goalkeeping.
