I have over 30 years experience as a professional coach. I've worked with youth players to top level World cup players. It's all about you the player not me the coach, it's what can I do for you? The answer is simple, Analyze the players ability doing the basic fundamentals and go on from their. I only move on when said player feels comfortable to go forward. I am the best at what I do in Texas. I've been doing one on one's for over 30 years, I started the personal training program here in Texas back in 1988, working with youth players from age 7 and above. I stated the program and later on Gary Doherty former Spurs and Norwich player joined me. We are partners in our program.

You have the best soccer trainer right here in the Bay Area, Nobody and I mean nobody has the experience or the back ground in Texas Soccer like Coach Keyes. Brendan can take your kid to the next level in the game, he has the patience, understanding, most of all the tools to teach any player. He has my highest recommendation in coaching education, his training methods are second to none.
Brendan is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, a top coach that will make your kids much stronger players with his coaching/training methods. As a former professional player I recommend Brendan to you for one on one sessions and his soccer camps are fantastic.
Coach Keyes was my trainer for a season in USSL, he is the best I've worked with in my professional career. I highly recommend him to you for one on one training.
Brendan helped change my son’s game move from recreational to competitive play in just a few months!
I highly recommend Coach Brendan Keyes! I am very grateful with the all the help he has given my son Lorenzo. Coach Keyes has trained Lorenzo for over a year now and I am highly satisfied. My son has improved greatly and has learned a lot. Brendan has not only taught him Technics, and tactics, he has also educated him on the mental side of the game. Thank you Coach Keyes!
Brendan is one of the best coaches I've had the pleasure of working with. I came to Houston, Texas from Ireland to play for Houston Dash in women's professional league. My boy-friend Dean Zambra also a pro player played for Coach Keyes team the Houston Hurricanes F.C. I trained with the Hurricanes and held youth camps with Brendan, they are top clinics he puts on and he is brilliant with the players. He makes it all look easy and so much fun for the players.
I've played professional football at the highest level in the English Premier league with Spurs and Norwich. I met Coach Keyes about 8 years ago when I was looking for a move to MLS. Brendan was representing me as my agent in this deal. We became friends and remain good mates to this day. Even though the deal didn't materialize due to transfer fee, Brendan invited me over to Texas so I could learn from him and his coaching methods. I ended up staying for couple months as his assistant coach for the Houston Hurricanes F.C. I also played a couple of games and learned so much from his coaching education. Brendan is a top coach and definitely worth signing up your kids for one on one sessions.
·Coach Keyes has so much wisdom and knowledge of the game. You are in awesome mentor ship.
Brendan is an excellent trainer/coach! Brendan began training some of my boys and we saw immediate results! Brendan is very knowledgeable and works great with young players! I highly recommend him for both tactics and technical instruction. On top of all this, he is a great man who has been giving back to our community for many years!
