More About Coach Andres

I am currently a coach in DC United's Youth Soccer Program/ DCscores. I have been coaching with them since 2012. I was a volunteer in Tuckahoe Elementary School in Arlington, VA with Arlington Soccer Association. I have my US Soccer Federation E and D License to coach soccer.

I have been playing soccer since I was 7 years old. I grew up in Colombia but I moved to the US 6 years ago. In Colombia I played soccer for Universidad de Ciencias Aplicadas y Ambientales. I also played soccer for four years in Boyaca Chico, a professional club in Bogota.

10 to 15 minutes of warm up. - The player runs from the end line to the midfield line. Then he or she will do high kicks from the beginning to the midfield line. After that the player pass the ball under his or her thights with their hands while walking until the midline. The next thing the player will skip laterally with their feet until the end line. Another thing the player will do high kicks behind their body and then last, stretching.

10 minutes - Evaluation I will see how the player kicks the ball, how to trap the ball with different parts of the body, how the player pass the ball in short and long distance and how the player dribbles the ball.

10 minutes - how to defend with pressure and the correct position to defend against an attacker

Client Reviews

Coach Andres was fantastic! He was very flexible in working with our schedule and needs. My son loved working with him and said each week that he felt his game getting stronger. I appreciated Andre's balanced approach - providing tips and skills for conditioning, ball handling, shooting, and other skills. He also worked with our son on the mental aspect of the game and the helped him understand how he can set and work toward football goals Andres is an excellent communicator and teacher. I would recommend him to anyone and we are looking forward to the next opportunity to work with him.

Coach Andres is a wonderful coach. His lessons are instructive yet fun. He has a knack for honing in on the skills that my son wants to develop. I highly recommend him as a coach.

Our 12 year old who has been playing travel soccer for the past 3 years just had her 1st lesson with Coach Andres. He made it fun for her she told us. The session was devoted to assessing her skills and he seemed to be able to spot her strengths & areas where she needed more help. Exactly what we were looking for. WE're looking forward to another session with Coach Andres!

My daughter had a great time during her first session with Coach Andres, and feels she got much more out of it then her normal team practices. He did a great job encouraging her when she was getting discouraged after making mistakes which helped her keep at it. I highly recommend him.

Coach Andres is excellent. He is focused, gives terrific feedback, encouraging to the child, and full of energy for the entire hour. His coaching improved my son's game dramatically after only one session. With each session, the improvement is noticeable by others watching the game. He helps instill confidence in the child and his techniques and assessment of what the child needs to learn next are right on the mark. He motivates my son to work on specific techniques during the week, to practice on certain skills, and to have a healthy lifestyle. My son has grown to love the sport as a result of Coach Andres' efforts.

Coach Andres is a great coach as he combines technique and skills development with compassion, kindness, and a real interest in the overall well being and development of young athletes. My 9 year old son struggls with self confidence and frustration issues that affect his playing and Coach Andres strikes a great balance between pushing him to reach his real potential, while giving him consistent positive reinforcement and encouragement. For the entire fall season, my son scored 1 goal. After 3 sessions with Coach Andres he has scored two goals in every one of the last 4 games he has played. Coach Andres is flexible with arranging times and places for training sessions, he arrives before the scheduled time to set up, and he is always smiling, happy, and pleasant. We love Coach Andres (Te queremos Coach Andres!)

As a former professional player, Andres emphasizes the importance of fitness. His training successfully blends quality skills work with conditioning. He is energetic, personable, and makes efficient use of training time. As an added bonus, Andres can conduct lessons either in English or, as he does with my son, in Spanish.

Coach Andres has been terrific with my kids. The private coaching is just what they needed to improve their soccer skills. They are learning so much from him and he has a very good teaching style. We have several sessions left with Coach Andres and they are looking forward to them.

Coach Andres led four sessions with my 10 year old son, a striker/wing for a local travel club. Through possession drills, 1 v 1, and his own bag of tricks from his native Columbia, he was able to bolster my son's confidence in holding on to the ball, and fighting through traffic rather than passing it off (which he had a tendency to do in the past). Andres' pro experience - particularly related to stamina, speed, and aggression - was also conveyed to good effect. Overall, he was an engaged and committed coach whom I can highly recommend.

Very please with coach andres. He was ontime and the feedback from him was great since our first session was for him to observe my son play during actual game. We have agree to keep working together.

Great session with coach Andres today. My son is already starting to improve his game after only 2 sessions.
