He holds an Advanced Regional License through the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and has worked various camps between New York and Massachusetts. He has also coached youth club teams, including Boston Blast F.C., one of the premier youth clubs in Massachusetts, and volunteered with youth soccer in local towns around the Greater Boston area. Goin grew up in New York, playing soccer for one of the most wellknown clubs in the state, the F.C. Westchester soccer club. He attended Long Island University-Southampton College, where he played defense and midfield for the men’s soccer team. While a student-athlete there, the program was nationally ranked every year, reaching as high as third in the nation one season. Upon achieving his undergraduate education in liberal studies with minors in sports administration and marketing management, Goin stayed on to coach at Southampton as an assistant coach. In 2005, he moved to Boston to begin his career with the Saints.
