Before going to Jamestown, Nienhaus was an assistant coach at Shattuck-St. Mary's School, a private boarding school with a residential soccer program in Minnesota. During his time there, he helped two different teams to a National Final (2010 & 2013) and coached several Regional and National level players.

I have used the Soccer in College site for 8 years, and it has helped me keep my personal and soccer information up to date, and has helped be track college contacts and interest. I think the site helped me prepare for college offers, and helped me determine that I wanted to play for UNC.
