More About Coach Baggio

I have been training athletes for over 14 years. During my time in Chicago I trained soccer players on a daily basis. Having played at a professional level for 10 years I have gained a deep knowledge about the principals and ideas needed to help create elite soccer players.

Currently a midfielder for the LA Galaxy, I have been successful at every level of soccer. After moving to the United States from Bosnia by way of Germany, I landed in Northern Illinois where I had a tremendous youth career with the historic Sockers FC Chicago. I entered into the University of Illinois-Chicago in the fall of 2006. I was a key figure to their success during my time in Chicago. During the Flames run to the NCAA Round of 32, Sweet 16 and Elite 8, I garnered Horizon League Player of The Year and NSCAA All-American honors. After three seasons at UIC I signed a Generation Adidas contract with Major League Soccer. I was drafted 20th overall by the Chicago Fire in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft.
I spent three years with the Fire prior to heading to Sweden to play for the country's most historic club, Hammarby IF. I appeared in over 40 matches between 2012 and 2013. When the chance came to rejoin the MLS with the Los Angeles Galaxy, it was an opportunity I couldn't refuse. My impact at the club was immediate. In my first season I saw action in every match. While starting 26 games I added five goals and four assists all while helping the Galaxy to their historic fifth MLS Cup Championship.

I focus primarily on the foundation of a player and making sure that the basic movements and techniques are as good as they can be. From there we focus on specific elements of each persons game and what they want to improve on, or any thing I notice that should be the central focus of our sessions. The sessions will always be different and I will challenge my athletes to push themselves and constantly improve.

Client Reviews

Coach Baggio exceeded every expectation we had! He really put my daughter at ease quickly, and gave her some great skills. He was very encouraging, and seemed to know exactly what she needed to hear in order to progress. I saw a huge improvement in her just from one session. We can't wait to work with him again, I highly recommend him as a coach.

Baggio is a complete professional. He was on time, prepared, and got right to work with our son. He was able to quickly identify a couple of bad habits and work to fix them immediately during the session. He is very personable and creates a positive, engaging, and rigorous training session. We HIGHLY recommend Baggio to anyone looking to improve their game!

We did our first session and he was awesome. Did specific drills that catered to her position. She got a great fitness work out while doing the drills. She felt very comfortable with Baggio and plan on setting up future sessions soon!

Baggio is amazing! He is fantastic with our daughter and the workouts are challenging & methodically. She is learning so much about the skills she needs to succeed.

Baggio is the best in Southern California, I've trained with many coaches in the area and theres no one like him. His ability to simulate in game scenarios and the emphasis he puts on fundamentals, makes players comfortable on the ball and gives them the ability to play to their full potential. He gets the best out of you in every session and you'll see a major difference in your touch that'll become evident in games. If you want to play at the highest level, he's your guy.

My daughter has really enjoyed her sessions with Baggio and she is learning a ton. Every session includes a balance of conditioning, improving technique and touch, and decision-making. The sessions definitely focus on developing the whole player, regardless of position, and of reinforcing the skills and habits that will be a differentiator on the field. And the fact that he is easy going and very positive makes it easy to highly recommend Baggio for training at virtually any level.

Baggio is a very intelligent player who is incredible passionate about the game of soccer. Aside from being a great pro, he's a wonderful person off the field and positive mentor to many kids in the neighborhood.
