More About Coach Brendan

As a coach I have been running private sessions for over four years now. I enjoy working with all players of all ages and all skill levels. I like to keep my sessions fun but I also like working with players who are driven and are looking to improve their game. I like to start my sessions with a good dynamic warm up that includes dynamic movements and stretching. I then like to do technical work that includes passing and juggling. I have typically worked with strikers and midfielders and usually incorporate a lot of finishing, crossing, and one v one exercises. That being said, I can work on any aspect of a player's game that they wish to improve. I am very fair when it comes to assessing players' abilities and I like to be as honest as possible with my clients. Over the years I feel as though through my sessions, players have improved their game drastically which is rewarding for both them and for me as well.

As a player I have many years of experience at the youth national team, college, and professional levels. I represented the US Under 17 Men's National Team in the 2007 FIFA U17 World Cup and have been capped at the U20 level as well. I played four years at the University of Notre Dame where I made 81 appearances for my team. As a professional I was drafted in the second round of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. I proceeded to take the opportunity to play in Europe instead where I signed with Norwegian Adeccoligaen club Atla IF. I then signed with Chicago Fire of MLS where I spent a year and a half. I currently play for the Austin Aztex of USL Pro.

As mentioned, I like to keep my sessions fun but challenging. I start with a good warmup and follow with technical work (on the ball dribbling, passing, juggling, volleys). I like to do a lot of finishing exercises and one v one work as well. Whether you are a striker looking to get a lot of reps finishing or a defender trying to work on your one v one abilities I can help. I like to get involved and join in my sessions too!

I would recommend him fantastic coach

Coach Brendan has really helped my daughter to gain confidence in her abilities within a very short period of time and she is already seeing improvement. She loves working with Coach Brendan and looks forward to training with him each week!

Coach Brendan is an excellent coach. My son is training with him while out on summer break from college. Coach Brendan is helping him work on not only his keeper abilities but his speed too

He was great and worked very well with my 14 year old daughter!

Coach Brendan was a great coach with patience and the ability to keep someone's attention. Unfortunately we had to relocate and put the training on hold.

My daughter loves training with Coach Brendan. He makes training time fun, but at the same time really pushes her to that next level. He packs a lot into the hour. We are seeing results of his training come game time.

Coach Brendan was professional and courteous. During our first session he was,able to assess my skills and make a plan for future sessions. I look forward to my technical skills improving in future sessions.

Great session! My son is looking forward to training with Coach Brendan again in the near future.

Max had fun and learned alot from a professional!
