More About Coach Abdul

I am the proud founder of Charlotte Soccer Training. I LOVE the beautiful game of soccer. I enjoy learning about the art coaching, as I've studied the game for years, both the technical, tactical, physical and mental side of it from the United States Soccer Federation coaching courses, books, videos, tests, and coaching experience. Also, the concentration of my bachelor's degree from the University of South Carolina is in physical education. But where I feel I learned the most is from the experience and joy of coaching 1on1 and small groups for 9 years, and the experience of working with soccer clubs and teams such as South Carolina United FC for 2 years, Liverpool FC America for 4 years, Lake Carolina elementary school soccer program for 1 year, Langford elementary school soccer program for 2 years and Ridge View High School varsity team for 1 year in Columbia, South Carolina. I coached hundreds of kids, teenagers, and adults. I love coaching teams, but 1on1 & small group sessions give me the most satisfaction in coaching soccer. I love the feeling of watching my players learn new technical and tactical skills, improve their agility and speed, and most importantly improve their mental game. I absolutely love what I do 😊

Having the privileged of being born in morocco, I naturally grow up playing soccer at a very young age. Fast forward many years later I played JV soccer at Brookland-Cayce High School as a middle school student at Northside middle school, I played varsity soccer as a midfielder at Ridgeview High School, and I also played as a striker at the college club level at Midlands technical college in Columbia, SC.

From start to finish all my sessions include the ball, because the only way control and dribbling will become second nature for a player is when they get hundreds of touches each and every practice.

1. I start off with a fun warm-up that involves technical skills with the ball at a low level of intensity.
2. I work with the player on a small sided drill that involves technical skills at a moderate level of intensity.
3. I work with the player on large sided drill that involves technical and tactical skills at a high level of intensity.
4. 1v1 small sided games.
5. cool down with one of the following: juggling, penalty kicks or free kicks.
6. Conversation with the player to recap the main takeaways of today's session and the homework he or she will have to do before the next session :)

Client Reviews

Abdul was detailed in critics. We look forward to working with him further.

Abdul has been so amazing for my son. He is a patient knowledgeable coach and demands perfection which has made my son step it up a few notches! Abdul comes to our games and then together they review / discuss. We admire Abdul for his kind professional nature.

I have a 13yr old boy that has been playing soccer for 5 years.

If you are on the fence about getting any coaching for yourself or your child do not wait. Coach Abdul will be the best money you have ever spent to increase your ability. He is diligent, adaptable and hands down the most knowledgeable coach I have ever had the chance to work with. I'm not trying to go over the top here but he truly did make my kid so much better. And I thank him for that.

My 10 year old daughter has worked with Abdul for 4 sessions now, we are really starting to see improvements with her dribbling and first touches. She has more work left but our sessions with Abdul are putting her on the right path. I would highly recommend his services. He works well with my daughter. Keeps her engaged and teaches in a way she can understand. 5 stars from us!

Really connected well with my son. Gave great insight.

On a scale of 1-10, Abdul is 100! He is professional, responsible and his enthusiasm for soccer is evident in each session. He encourages players to reach and exceed their potential. Sessions are skill-based and challenging, however Abdul maintains a nurturing spirit and has fun on the field. Abdul not only focuses on the physical aspect of the game and improvement, but also helps players develop a growth mindset. I highly recommend Abdul as a coach.
Abdul is a highly skilled player and coach. Coach Abdul loves the game of soccer and his players are lucky to learn from him. Coach Abdul customized his training for my daughter and after a few months of consistent training she was playing at a speed and ability her club coaches couldn’t believe!! Abdul is AWESOME!!
I have two sons who have been training with him for years now. He is a great coach, puts a lot of effort in training, and he is very patient and dedicated. He helped my children grow tremendously technically, tactically and mentally. They consider him a friend more than a coach. Both started with him from the beginning. The older plays for JV and varsity at his high school and is doing great. The younger plays in travel/ club team at a higher age group and also is doing very well. My third son just joined him few months ago and his level shows significant improvement already. I highly recommend him for anybody who wants to learn soccer from the beginning to high levels.
My daughter has been training with Coach Abdul since November 2013 when she was 8 years old. Now she is 13 playing in the National Premier League. In the beginning he focused on general skills necessary for any young player, but now he hones in on skills specific to her position at center-mid. He has taken the time to review video looking for areas of opportunity and even attended a few games over the years. Abdul is extremely knowledgeable, has high attention to detail, and an abundance of patience! I highly recommend Coach Abdul and Charlotte Soccer Training for private or semi-private sessions for any player wishing to grow their skills at a more accelerated rate than their peers.
My daughter started training with Abdul at the age of ten. At that time, she was playing goalie and missed a year of touching the ball and playing in the field. After working with Abdul, she became the best technical player in her age group and the skill set she developed under his training led her to be a top player at the ECNL level. He is knowledgeable, easy to work with, passionate about what he does, and the best personal soccer trainer I have seen. I would recommend him to any player who wants to take their game to the next level!
The coach is very generous with his time and really cares about my child's development.
This guy is probably the best soccer player I know. He taught me everything I know and started me off from the beginning. I was terrible when I started but he trained me. He has lots of patience during training. He is an excellent coach and an amazing friend. I don’t know if I would even be playing soccer today without him.
My 2 sons have been training with him a while now. He is a great coach, puts a huge effort in training, he is very patient and dedicated. He helped children grow tremendously technically, tactically and mentally. They consider him a friend more than a coach. Both play in travel teams and are doing very well. They wouldn’t have reached this level without his help.
Very professional, the program is dedicated to improving my child's skills, game awareness and mentality every single session. Plus the value given outside the training session throughout the month is equally as valuable!
