Currently, Alex coaches as Mad Skillz and has a passion for cats so he helps at Field haven Feline Center in Lincoln, California. 


His goal with Mad Skillz is to learn as much about the Mad Skillz methodology as possible, while bringing his own flair and vision into developing better soccer players and people. He looks forward to his future with Mad Skillz and would love to be a leader on and off the pitch/court!


Alex is an industrious individual who coaches his never-say-die mentality into those he plays and coaches with. Whatever the task, he strives for perfection or the best possible outcome. Alex is thrilled to be a part of the Mad Skillz famiglia and will do anything for the betterment of the group!

Meet Bridget Pelzman


The kids love coach B!

Bridget started playing soccer at age 4 and has continued to play from that day forward.  As a 9 year old she began playing comp soccer for Placer Blues and began training with the ultimate Mo Ruiz!!!  The next year she went to Placer United and has been there for the duration of her career up until now. 


Mo Ruiz was one of the ultimate trainers that she had during her younger years that helped develop her into the player she is today.  She has been playing on the US Development Team with Placer United for the last three years and has been the starting dominant Center Back for the entire Club.  


Bridget had a starting position with Humboldt State as a freshman but recently decided to stay closer to home and continue to work with children, and she will be a starting Freshman for the Sierra College Women’s Soccer Team for the upcoming year.


Get out and cheer her on anytime you can work it into your schedule. Bridget loves training with Mad Skillz and loves working with all children.
