Coaching philosophy

I want to help players to be excellent decision-makers and find the answers while improving soccer actions (verbal and non-verbal communication — decision making — decision execution) as often as possible and as long as possible. Since long-term participation in a sport at the highest level of an athlete’s potential requires coordinated movement, full-body strength, balance and overall enhanced mechanics to reduce the chance of injury and improve performance.

Non-soccer passion/hobby
