Coaching history Coach for Downtown United Soccer Club for 9 years, U6 through U10 Academy. Coached for Carlos Oliveira Soccer Academy for 4 years, camps and classes. 

Coaching philosophy I believe that soccer should be fun and challenging. My goal is to teach kids the skills they need to be better players. Give them freedom during their game and let them use their imagination. Teach them the value of hard work and playing fair and by the rules. Also I believe in teaching them to be responsible for their own, and each other’s, success. Only they themselves can really help each other improve; I can provide them with the tools they can use, but they choose whether or not to use them.
