In his new role, Visser will work in tandem with head coach Bob Lilley, guiding the pro team’s scouting and player recruitment efforts to build a championship-caliber team next season and beyond. He also will work directly with the Riverhounds Academy as the club continues to build a direct pathway for its players to rise through the development program to the professional level, both with the Hounds’ First Team and to opportunities in the global soccer market.

Visser took time out of his busy schedule in his first few days in this position to talk to PSN’s John Krysinsky for the latest episode of Sounding Off on Soccer.
