About Janet Schaefer

Janet is the Author of the FYSA Arctic Kickers Coaching Manual and has conducted several FYSA recreational coaches training clinics over the years. However, when Janet isn't coaching or volunteering in the Fairbanks soccer community, she is a professional volcanologist at the Alaska Volcano Observatory. Janet and her husband share a love of the outdoors and keep busy with her three active boys (ages 17, 14, and 10) through activities like skiing, snowboarding, running, biking, playing basketball, and spending off-time at the family cabin in the Wrangell Mountains. Though soccer plays a central role in her life, but Janet also understand the importance of time spent together as a family. Janet is currently the Head Coach for the Fairbanks Rush 03B Black team.
