Coach Raad is originally from Bangladesh. He grew up in Queens, NY. Soccer has been apart of his acquired culture throughout his youth now branching into his adult years. Starting off from watching his grandfather playing soccer from their local park in Queens, to taking him to impromptu scrimmage games with the other neighborhood kids, he was able to grab the ropes of the sport at a very young age. Growing into his teenage years, he later joined a league associated with his neighborhood mosque. Going through middle & highschool, he was heavily playing recreationally with fellow students. Growing to love the sport, while also finding a passion to help and nurture young children has helped him find his crossroads with SoccerCric.
