More About Coach Benjamin

I've been coaching in LA for the past 5 years since arriving from London, England where i had a successful and enjoyable soccer career for more than 20 years. I'm currently a scout for Calsouth ODP program and a coach at Cresenta Valley sc.

As a private soccer coach, I'm dedicated to helping my students in their continued growth in both their tactical and technical sides of the game. I keep lessons fun and teach students at every age and level good training habits that they can utilize on their own or bring into a team environment.

I always like to start my classes with an energetic warm up and stretch to get the students focused on the core muscles necessary for the days lesson. My goals are to make every lesson I give easy to understand with both verbal and practical demonstrations to get the most out of every player's development.

My core coaching values are to teach good basic skills ie. passing, shooting, heading, vision, movement and depending on players ability i will teach more complex moves such as volleying, step overs and fakes. My goal is for every student to become more confident in their abilities after working with me.
