I’m Jim Schneider, head coach here at Cherry Creek. In addition to girls soccer, I'm also the varsity assistant coach for the boys team. I am state certified and have my national D license for soccer. I have taught English in the Cherry Creek School District for 29 years. I opened up Eaglecrest High School in 1990 and transferred to Cherry Creek in the fall of 1998. During my career I have coached football, baseball, basketball and lacrosse at the high school level. I’m married and have two daughters who attended Cherry Creek. Emily earned a B.A and a law degree from CU Boulder, and Amanda earned her business degree at the University of Arizona. Amanda played varsity soccer for three years and was lucky enough to play on the 2012 state championship soccer team. If I’m not on the field, I’m probably playing cowboy and riding my horse.
I am the assistant varsity coach at Creek. I have been coaching girls and boys in the CCHS program since 2002. Soccer is my passion – I have played on three continents, and still enjoy playing around town in the “old-men’s leagues.” I coach my kids’ club teams, and am an avid Premier League and Bundesliga fan. I teach Video Production at Cherry Creek High School, and run the Friday video morning announcements through my Broadcast Journalism class.
