Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Stanley Nyazamba moved to the United States in 2003 to play college soccer on a scholarship. In 2008, Stanley graduated from Lee University (TN) with a BSc Degree in Business Administration. As a Collegiate Soccer All American and Academic All American, Stanley graduated and then played professionally for Columbus Crew (MLS), Richmond Kickers (USL) and FC Tampa Bay (NASL).


Stanley's older brother, Ray, introduced him to soccer when he was 3 years old and that simple act changed his life forever. He never stopped playing, and after moving to the US, Stanley developed an interest in youth soccer coaching. For over 10 years Stanley has touched the lives of countless youths of various ages through the beautiful game of soccer. He founded Kidz 'n' Kicks Soccer as a way to help youth in the US develop a love for sports, encouraging an active lifestyle from a very young age. Stanley's culture and parents emphasized traits of respect, humility, listening, empathy and caring and Kidz 'n' Kicks reinforces these lessons as well.


Stanley has gained valuable experience by being around the game his entire life. He has also played professionally for the last 6 years and has been coaching preschool kids for 3+ years.


Soccer changed Stanley's life and his commitment to Kidz 'n' Kicks Soccer may do the same for your child or children.
