Patrick Kaindl

Program Director- Chantilly



Patrick began coaching at the recreational level in 2017 before moving into a travel coaching position at the under-8 through under-10 ages for the Eclipse Select Soccer Club based in the Chicagoland area. He came to The St. James FC Virginia in the Summer of 2023 to head the Chantilly location at the under-7 to under-10 ages. Patrick’s role oversees the Discover Soccer program (2-5 year-olds), Chantilly Rec Soccer program (6-10 year-olds), Chantilly under-8 Academy program, and the under-9 and under-10 travel teams based in Chantilly.

Patrick is currently working towards a USSF D license in coaching. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Sport Management with a minor in Business Administration from the University of Dayton. He furthered his education obtaining his master’s degree in organizational leadership from Olivet Nazarene University in the summer of 2023.

His coaching philosophy is based in teaching proper technique and fundamentals while working to master them at game speed or “technical edge.” The idea is to master your technical edge leading to a more confident player that can execute under pressure a game environment. Outside of soccer Patrick prioritizes developing the human, not just the player, to work within a team setting learning to take leadership roles and accountability for their own personal player development.

Patrick grew up in the Chicagoland area where he played at all levels of youth soccer with the Chicago Magic and Chicago Fire Development Academy. Patrick and his wife Kelcey currently live in Sterling, VA with their dog Woody.
