2 QUESTIONS WITH SCHIPPER
Who is your biggest soccer influence and why?
My dad. He was born in the Netherlands where soccer is their national sport. He got me playing soccer when I was five, kept me interested in soccer all of my life and helped my drive to get better. Another influence would be Thom Schauerman, my goalkeeper coach, who I started training with the summer of my freshman year in high school. He has helped me work to reach the skill level I'm at today and brought me in to try out for Lower Merion, pulling me out of a dead end club where I wouldn't have been seen by college coaches.
Why did you select Yale?
Because of the friendly, calm attitude of the coaches as well as their ambition, the reputation of Yale for academic excellence and the chance to play Division I soccer. The combination of these conditions seem like an opportunity too good to pass up. If felt Yale to be a place I could succeed academically and athletically.
Coach Stannard On Schipper: "One of the most important traits I look for in a goalkeeper is presence and this is not just about size or communication but a certain confidence and calmness which I noticed from Kees the first time I saw him. It doesn't hurt that he is 6'4" and wears size 15 boots. Kees' father is from the Netherlands and his mother was a varsity basketball player at Penn State so he brings a soccer and athletic pedigree. Kees also moves pretty well for his size and is pretty comfortable with the ball at his feet. He has been trained well and has some tools that provide an excellent foundation for the future. Kees will have his work cut out for him but will have a chance to compete right away."
