I have a sustainable, progression based training and coaching model that’s based in European, African and South American methods that states what I do, what I am and what I am trying to achieve with players and teams. My coaches and training staff also perform in line with this training vision. We work in unison to develop and institute a coaching program that develops a player’s mind, body and soul in playing soccer with an IQ.

My main focus is to create an environment for players to express themselves, thus they will grow in confidence. I take away the fear of not winning a game and bring forth a child’s confidence in playing the game. Winning does not equal development, but will come as a result of correct player and team development.

My model focuses on individual growth in knowing what the player should do with the ball in non-pressure and pressure situations. I teach children how to play possession style soccer. The player will have no fear in making a mistake because they will be taught how to recover if they do. I refuse to let a player be fearful of just playing the game. My main focus is to create an environment for children to express themselves, thus they will grow. The progression is implemented by myself and my trainers in such a way that your child is guaranteed to find success in this beautiful game of Fütbal.
