Nicholas Manzoni

Founder

Nick is a former Division 1 soccer player at Drake University. With over six years of coaching experience, he is always eager to further his soccer knowledge on and off of the field. A former Minnesota Thunder Academy player, Nick has the experience at the highest level of youth soccer.

At the age of 17, he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that put his life and his future soccer career in the balance. After nine months of treatment and three surgeries, he was able to recover what was lost and compete at the Division 1 level. During treatment, he was very limited physically, forcing him to train his mind rather than his body. It was from this experience that the SportsLab360⁰ mission took shape.
