More About Coach Alex

I have experience coaching kids individually of all ages, mostly club soccer, from the recreational level as well as the competitive level. I have been lucky enough to be able to work and learn around the country where the professional game has taken me. Playing for various coaches has given me the opportunity to pick their brains and allowed me a further insight into the intricacies of the coaching world. Currently I am taking my badges to further my coaching education inside of the US Soccer Program.

I have experience at every level of the game in US Soccer. I played for the US Youth National Teams from the U-15s, U-17s and the U-20s. In addition to that I attended the US U-17 Residency program from 2006-07. 2007 NSCAA/adidas Youth All-America Team and the 2007 Parade All-America squad. Earned all-star honors at the adidas ESP Camp in 2006. I played my college soccer at the University of North Carolina from 2008-2011 winning ACC titles and went to 3 straight NCAA College Cups. Signed my first professional contract in 2011 as a homegrown player for the Houston Dynamo and played there from 2011-2014. Rochester Rhinos from 2014-2015 winning a USL Championship in 2015. Jacksonville Armada 2016 - Energy FC 2017-2018 - Hartford Athletic 2019-2020 - Pittsburgh Riverhounds current.

A typical session with me will normally consist of a warm-up and graduate into technical work: passing, dribbling, etc. I believe that getting as many touches on the ball as possible is essential to becoming a better player.

Client Reviews

Coach Alex is amazing, extremely down to earth, and takes the time to make practices fun but also focused and extremely productive. I have never seen my son smile and enjoy a practice as much as he did with coach Alex. He focused on points of improvement as well as technical aspects of the sport. I am very excited for continuing practice with coach Alex, and so is my son. I would highly recommend him.

Coach Alex was patient with my young son and daughter. He provided excellent communication before and during the session. He was organized and planned a great session around our development goals.
