More About Coach Carlos

With extensive training and stellar sportsmanship, Carlos is a highly skilled coach in the sport of Soccer.
Combining technical accuracy, and commitment to teaching, your child will be learning from one of the local greats!
Carlos has been coaching children ages 4-years-old to high school seniors for the past 11 years. He has an extensive resume of work including Brookline High School, Viking Sports Camp, Maynard Youth Soccer, Prep Soccer Academy, Brookline Soccer Club, Target Soccer Academy, and most recently Global Premier Soccer (GPS) and Chestnut Hill Soccer.
Carlos specializes in cub training, which is ages 4-years-old to 7-years-old. He believes "90% of technical ability is acquired before the adolescent period" which is why his philosophy is to start young and keep the focus on technique and having fun.
Carlos has certification in Regional Coaching, Goalkeeper Coaching and Advanced National Certificate in the NSCAA.

Carlos was awarded the Central Massachusetts Division III Boys Coach of the Year in 2012, and the Central Massachusetts Maynard High School Boys Coach of the Year in 2010.

For a field player, your child will experience a muscle and joint warm up including a ballistic stretch. The warm up will continue getting comfortable with the soccer ball while continuing to get the heart rate up (e.g. one-touch or two-touch passing and juggling). We will progress to technique, train which part of the foot to work with, trapping, dribbling and striking. Depending on the age and level we will train on agility ladders, cone work, and coaches stakes movement. We will end our training session with a cool down and a brief discussion on what was learned, what can be improved, and homework.
For goalkeeper training, we warm up similar to field player except we will start with a hand warm up with contour catches, basket catches, high contour catches, and K-stops. We will also talk about positioning and angles, and game-time situations including corner kicks, direct and indirect kicks, and breakaways.

Excellent coach! Motivated, great energy, and very knowledgeable! Coach Carlos was able to make my 10yr old daughter extremely comfortable with him within minutes of meeting him. He had great ideas, great drills, and kept it fun!!! Highly recommend Carlos to anyone looking to expand their soccer!!!

Coach Carlos did a wonderful job teaching new skills to my 10 year old daughter. He works really well with kids and she enjoyed the lessons with him.

Coach Carlos is fantastic with kids and a great coach. He managed to work with both my sons who are 5 years apart and very different in personality and ability. They both enjoyed the sessions and got a lot out of them. He was very professional and organized and honed in on skills to work on that benefitted both of them. He managed to be both serious and positive. Both boys improved noticeably. Because they were able to recognize the improvement they were motivated to practice some of the skills on their own. I would highly recommend Carlos for kids of all skill levels. Watching him work with the boys also gave me a much better insight into activities that I could do with them myself.

Coach Carlos was very motivational. The first session was great to instill some basics for my 9 year old. I highly recommend him.

Carlos was great! Worked with my high school keepers and they all learned something new. Highly recommend!

Coach Carlos was excellent - my son loved training with him. Very motivational.

Carlos rocks.

My son had a two week trip to Boston to visit his grandparents and I was looking for a coach to work for a few sessions with him. Carlos was outstanding. He gave Ben direct feedback and actions that he can implement immediately. He was able to provide balance between technical direction and the mental side of the game. We would certainly recommend Carlos and look forward to working with him during future visits.

I loved how motivating he was he kept me pushing and working very hard, that’s exactly what I want in a coach. I felt like I improved a lot and I felt very good after the session was over. I am definately going to book more sessions in the future

Justin really enjoyed the private coaching experience. He felt he learned in many areas. He asked to have more sessions with Coach Carlos. Justin enjoyed the two hour session and thought Coach Carlos was relaxed and respectful, but able to coach him to improvement. Update: Justin has had several sessions with Coach Carlos, and he is really feeling good about his progress. Carlos always arrives prepared and gets the session going. Justin looks forward to his training days with Carlos.

I highly recommend Coach Carlos. He is working with my 15 year old son and comes to each session extremely well prepared with many different drills and practice equipment. Coach was able to quickly assess the areas for my son to work on and he keeps him engaged and enthused throughout the session. He has a deep level of soccer knowledge and I am excited he his passing along to my son.

Coach Carlos is a great coach. Informative and knowledgeable. I enjoyed my sessions with him. My skills definitely improved and my approach to the game has changed. He comes well prepared for sessions. I would recommend coach Carlos.

What a terrific experience for my son! Coach Carlos is extraordinarily professional, and the process was smooth from start to finish. However, more importantly, he is a fantastic goalie coach! A few short sessions were hugely valuable!

We first contacted Coach Carlos because my son (age 14) had been a bit frustrated in his recent play (club elite level) and wanted to work on a few skills. The first session was more of an evaluation where Carlos took him through various skills to gauge his level. The following sessions he concentrated on some of the areas he identified as needing practice. Carlos is engaging with a wonderful, positive attitude. My son immediately began playing with greater confidence. I would highly recommend Coach Carlos if your child needs a little personal attention to up their game.

My 12 year old son just had his first session with Coach Carlos. He said he Coach Carlos was great and he learned more in 1 session then he did in play a session. Coach Carlos focused on drills and (goalie)techniques and was very positive. Needless to say he will be continuing with Coach Carlos. He wishes he went to Coach Carlos years ago.

Coach Carlos is awesome. I had the pleasure to work with him and I can tell he really helped improving my skills and my game with some great tips. I highly recommend this fantastic coach.

Coach Carlos is fabulous! He really helped my daughter learn new techniques and displayed both great attention to detail as well as a wonderfully positive attitude. I really appreciated his ability to keep her focused, reinforce the concepts he was teaching, and connect with her in a fun and productive manner. He made learning fun!

Our son had one session with coach Carlos so far but we already booked more (regular sessions). They did a lot of work on technique, various drills; but I think what stood out is the very positive attitude of the coach, which I think is so important, at any level (even maybe more so at the competitive level our son plays at). He enjoyed it! And of course having 1-on-1 training provides the personalized attention so I'm hoping will help a lot with progress, I feel like we're starting to see some differences already.

Great coach! Offers a lot of encouragement and points out mistakes at the same time. Had a great time practicing with him.

Excellent training session. Coach Carlos worked on specific drills for our daughter and she saw immediate improvement in her game. He was prompt, courteous, motivating and skilled. She really enjoyed the session and plans to do more sessions in the future.

I booked 1 session as a trial and stayed to watch coach Carlos. I saw an enthusiastic, energetic coach use positive reinforcement and a solid set of drills when teaching my 12 year old son. I was very happy with the session and we booked an extended training package. I would recommend Coach Carlos to anyone.

Matthew has already applied what he's learned from Coach Carlos in his game. Not only has he learned New skills to be a better goalie, Carlos has also given Matthew greater confidence in his abilities.

Great first session! Matthew learned so much on the first day alone. He cannot wait for his next session with Coach Carlos.

Coach Carlos was awesome!! He was so enthusiastic and made the first session really fun for my 11 year old son! Carlos was very intuitive and thoughtful, and immediately knew how to build his confidence and engage him. We will definitely be booking more sessions asap!!

My Son was very happy wiht his first coaching session.

Coach Carlos arrived on time, had a fruitful training session with my son. My son really enjoyed the session and I will recommend him to anyone who is looking for a soccer trainer. Good job, Coach.

Even though I have just started training with Coach Carlos, I feel the improvements already. His exercises and drills are none like I have ever done before, and he is very good at fixing my flaws. He is extremely conscientious. He runs alongside me in warm-up jogs, and is overall a coach I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Coach Carlos is a positive, industrious coach who exhibits a high degree of professionalism. His encouragement and focus makes the athlete motivated to work harder and train. He is very comfortable switching gears between outfield and keeper training, while assessing the player. Very good at providing technical challanges appropriate for the athlete, highly recommended for short or long training.

We were in town for only a couple days and scheduled a session with Coach Carlos. He taught my 13 year old son, a lifelong club soccer player some very useful techniques that will definitely improve his game. It was a great workout and my son was thoroughly satisfied. He's a super nice guy, too. Thanks for a great experience!

Coach Carlos is a very enthusiastic coach! He's very flexible and not only has his own plan for each session but also worked on specific things I needed help with first. He gives encouraging words often. Coach Carlos also has a good perspective and helps explain things with examples. He also makes sure that I understand the reasons for doing very drill, like how it will help in the long run. He has a quick but effective warm up. I felt like I worked very hard with him, but I was never overworked. He gives lots of water breaks, also paying attention to the fact that I have other sports and need rest time. Both sessions I've had with him he willingly stayed a bit longer than the set time to talk to my mom about my performance and for a follow up of that session with me.

Coach Carlos is an amazing coach. My son has only had 2 sessions so far, and he has already improved on his skills and has received excellent coaching and tips.My son cannot say enough about how Carlos is such a great teacher, gives great feedback, and most important, my son is having fun while learning to become a much improved goalie. We highly recommend Coach Carlos!

Coach Carlos runs a great goalkeeper training session. Excellent mix of technique instruction, drills, and conditioning while also paying attention to the psychological aspects of the position and building confidence in a girls U15 player. Appreciate how he checks in with my daughter during the session to evaluate her understanding and also her condition and hydration; he is a pro and it shows in his concern for player safety and development.

Carlos is fantastic! Excellent skills training and conditioning coupled with an extremely positive approach. A great experience for my son.

A great and very knowledgeable coach.
He walks you through exercises step by step, explains why each drill is important and helps you learn proper technique fast.

Would definitely recommend!

Lance has a great spring season on central select. He enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks to Carlos for being such an involved coach and bringing out the best in Lance!
Carlos is doing an excellent job coaching. He has unbelievable positive energy and the girls have been enjoying his coaching and encouragement. The tempo of play has increased from the previous seasons and it is fun to watch the energy of the team. He has moved the girls around in positions and subs frequently so all get to play and feel a part of the team. Thanks so much for hiring a coach like Carlos for the team.
We will never let you go now that we have you as our coach
I've enjoyed watching the practices and seeing the creative drills that you come up with, as well the positive feedback that you give the kids. Your rigor and discipline inspire them to work ever harder at honing their skills, and I attribute my son's willingness to work in the net as much as he does to the training that he has done with you.
Carlos is very well organized and professional. He greets each player every morning, and is extremely welcoming and encouraging. My son has thoroughly enjoyed the variety of drills that Carlos has taught. He appreciates the coaching on his individual skills, as well as team strategy. Above all, Carlos enthusiasm and knowledge of soccer has truly inspired my son and his teammates. These athletes are not only prepared, but extremely exited for their soccer season.
