More About Coach Christian

I have helped coach for Sporting Blue Valley and SKC organization. From ages 4-20. My Dad is the General Manager for Region II US Soccer so I've been around soccer my entire life. Soccer experience: 2 years with Sporting KC, played for Energy FC and played in KC for Swope Park Rangers, Sporting KC reserve side. Now currently playing for Orange County SC

I played 4 years at USD, playing in the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament my senior year. Then was drafted by Sporting KC in 2012. Won a USL Championship with Orlando City and that same year went back to KC from being on loan to win the MLS Cup. Played for Energy FC and played in KC for Sporting KC's reserve team, Swope Park Rangers. In our first two years of existence, we won the Western Conference Championship. Now playing for Orange County SC

Typically start off with a 10 minute warm up, working on footwork and technique. Then go into more advanced technical drills. Followed by proper passing technique. Then move on to dribbling drills enhancing your skill set by repetition. Depending on your position, we will spend some time working on position specific drills you'd find yourself in game like situations. I like to make the session around your needs and feedback from coaches.

Christian is a great coach in terms of working with younger kids and teaching them technical skills. Really appreciate his coaching style.

Christian is a top notch soccer coach. He can work on fitness, game knowledge, technical training, ball control and tactics. He connects incredibly well with young players and has a great work ethic.

First rate coach and connects really well to the kids

My 12-yr-old dgtr just completed our first session. I thought the drills were great and my daughter learned a lot already.

Fabulous first session with my U16 daughter, Christian is on point with his drills, advice, and professionalism.

Coach Christian gave my son a great training session today. He went through a combination of fundamental and technical drills, providing great instruction in a way that was both encouraging and effictive for my 11 yr old. He also went through some position specific drills that my son really enjoyed and I could already see his confidence starting to rise in his first session. Being able to effectively coach is a real skill and Coach Christian definately exemplifies he's a pro in that arena. My son really enjoyed and got alot out of his training and we look forward to booking some more sessions with Christian.

Coach Christian is very personable and positive with our son. He is a pro in every sense of the word; knows how to play and coach the sport at an elite level.

I can’t say enough good things about Coach Christian. He’s has worked with my 8yr old son and 6yr old daughter for a couple of sessions now and we are already seeing positive results for both kids. The kids both really enjoying working with him. My kids have different skill levels and he easily manages both of them. He takes time to explain things that my kids haven’t received from their AYSO coaches. From the very basic to more advanced skills. He is extremely knowledgeable, a great instructor and patient (which is great for my kids). I would definitely recommend him and we will certainly continue to work with Coach Christian.

Great training, my son was challenged and had fun.

Coach Christian was great for Aaliyah's development and confidence. She has become a much better all around player and continues to practice the skills Coach Christian taught.

Coach Christian is the most positive and effective leader I have seen in years. He has unlocked a new enthusiasm within our daughter; her sessions are arduous and focused, and she leaves confident and envigorated.

Love Coach Christian. He is really good with Kylie. I already see improvement after only 2 sessions.

Coach Christian wastes no time getting down to business. He is professional and knowledgeable, and great with our 10 year old. We’ve only had 2 sessions so far, and can already tell he is a great fit. We highly recommend him!

Coach Christian was extremely knowledgeable and so patient with my 6 year old. We are only one session in and I can tell he is going to make a huge impact on my son. We are very pleased!

Christian did such a great job with my third grade son. I initially signed up for two sessions, but quickly added 10 more after watching how professional he was and how much my son enjoyed one session with Christian. I tell you what, when it comes to soccer lessons, Christian is an exceptional mentor/coach. I could not be happier that my son is able to train with such a wonderful, nice individual. I would recommend Christian to anyone!!!!!

Christian is working out with my 10 year old daughter. He has a great workout planned, always on time, always prepared, always gives feedback and my daughter spends the whole time working. His practice facilities are wonderful, the experience has been great!

2 sessions in and could not be more impressed. Upon arrival our training area is set up and ready to go.....no waiting. Christian encourages good technique and then teaches how to execute it. The drills are challenging and the one-on-one learning environment is exactly what we have been looking for. Christian successfully earned our sons trust and attention within the first session. We will continue to train through the off-season.

Christian is a fantastic Coach! Christian was able to identify development needs for my son and helped him develop into a premier player. He connects with all ages extremely well!

Just had our first session with Coach Christian and he was terrific. Has a great demeanor for kids and my 9 yr old son learned a lot in 1 hr. Not only what he worked on with Christian directly, but what he can take home and do in his spare time. Far better return than most camps we have attended. More touches and more/better direction. Will be setting up more sessions in the future! Would highly recommend.

I'm so glad I found coach up from my brothers. It's amazing how we found you. It's amazing how much he learn from one session, he came back home with all good feedback. Excited for this weekend game and to see the next session.

Coach Christian really resonated with our 12 year old son. He is improving his all important first touch, and gaining confidence in tight spaces.

Coach Christian ran some awesome drills for my 8 year old son. He explained exactly what he was looking to get out of each one. Absolutely great first session. Looking forward to more.

He really connected with my son early on. This was our first session and we traveled from a smaller town further away. Coach was very accommodating for our schedule. He also challenged our son. We will definitely be going back for more sessions. GREAT COACH!

My son had a great first training session with Coach Christian, and we will definitely be signing up for more sessions. The training was excellent and it really helped us to see what my son needs to work on going forward. Thanks so much!!

Very good coach knows what he is talking about and looking forward to work with him soon.

Lucas enjoyed his session and we are signing up for more!

Excellent coach, easy to set up schedule with, works great with our two boys. Highly recommend him!

My daughter had her first session and immediately played better that weekend. Christian has a very easy way about him but still pushes her to work hard. He was set up and ready before we even arrived and gave valuable feedback at the end, very professional! We are excited for our next coaching session.

Great 1st session. Worked well with my 9yr old. Evaled his skills, has a start point for future sessions.

My son loves training with Christian! He likes how he pushes him but at the same time is so positive and supportive.

Coach Christian was great! After their first session, we could already see some of the key strategies he helped unlock with our son. Can't wait for future training sessions! Highly recommended!

Coach Christian was great! I'm a high school student and was looking for a coach to help me improve my game. He really zoned in on things I need to work on. He explained everything we would do and why, but he also made it fun. I am looking forward to working with him on a regular basis.

Coach Christian was great. My daughter really enjoyed her session. We will definitely schedule more with him.

My son just started working with coach Christian and we are already seeing results. He gives very specific feedback and is positive and encouraging! We are looking forward to more sessions with him!

I think coach Christian is an excellent coach. He is always prompt and courteous for the training sessions. Both of my children have learned quite a bit in such a short period of time. He does a great job of articulating where he sees areas of needed improvement and provides the details needed to get to the next level. He provides a lot of enthusiasm to his training sessions. Both of my children look forward to the training sessions.

Coach Christian has done an incredible job with our 11 year old son. We've had three sessions so far and he's thoroughly challenged our son with skill development, techniques, ball striking and passing. We will definitely be utilizing his coaching for many more sessions going forward!

Coach Christian did amazing with our Son! We are looking forward to many more sessions with Christian!

Coach Christian was wonderful! He had drills already set up when we arrived. He was professional yet fun. My son enjoyed his training. We plan on booking more soon!

Coach Christian worked with my son on good technical techniques. He was very communicative and involved with my son. He gave my son things to work on outside of their sessions. We look forward to working with Christian more in the future.

We'very only had one session, but so far I am impressed with Coach Christian's patience and ability to connect with my 8 year-old son. My son is excited to continue to train with him is already playing with more focus and confidence on the field.

First session with Christian. Great communications and flexibility in setting up time and location. My son was very satisfied with drills and information provided by Coach. Great communication with student during practice. Son rated lesson as "Excellent" and looks forward to his next. Thank You Christian!

Coach Christian is very good with my son that is 14 years old. My son said he is already learning things he did not know. You can tell he has experience and knows what he is doing. Great personality and glad to have him coaching my son.

Coach Christian took time to evaluate what my son needed to improve to get to the next level. Great experience!

My son enjoys his weekly practices with Christian. He's learning and enthusiast about his improvement. Coach Christian always leave feedback about every practice which i love. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Christian!
