More About Coach Chris

- 5+ years of coaching experience mostly concentrating on personal soccer training and development
- Individuals and small groups is my specialty
- Tailored training sessions for each unique player
- US Soccer National F Coaching License

- Played 4 years of Collegiate Soccer at Santa Clara University
- Trained with the LA Galaxy between seasons
- Grew up in Southern California and played for top teams in the region including the Olympic Development Program team.

Prior to sessions, I speak with the parent to get an idea of the players strengths and weaknesses. I also like to speak with the parent about what position they are playing with their club or school team so I can teach accordingly. I tailor my sessions to each player so the parent and player get the most out of each training session.

Warm ups/Agility 25 min. - After a quick jog and stretch, we move along to using an agility ladder to improve foot quickness, explosiveness and balance.
Technical work 20 min. - This includes working on proper techniques for first touch, ball control, and dribbling.
Creativity 15 min - Creative players flourish in soccer. I show kids effective dribbling techniques and moves so they can really Wow people. I also show them different creative passing techniques
Shooting 15 min - I end every session with fun shooting drills. Being prolific in front of goal might be the most important skill in getting your kid noticed by high school/club and eventually collegiate coaches.

We finish up with a quick cool down lap and stretch. I chat with the player at the end of each session and go over how they did in the session and what they should be working on in the future.

We work hard but also have a ton of fun!

Client Reviews

I really enjoyed my first training lesson with Chris. I am a total beginner at soccer and Chris was very patient and encouraging when teaching me the basic techniques. I appreciated how clear his explanations/demos were and that he was able to give good feedback on what I was both doing right and wrong. I feel like I gained so much insight into soccer in one lesson, and am looking forward to practicing more! Chris is also an extremely warm and friendly person - highly recommend him!

Thanks for the three sessions and Alma is having a lot of fun!

Coach Chris is helping my twelve year old daughter who plays very competitive soccer. I am continually impressed with the quality of his lessons. I can actually see the difference from lesson to lesson and it is carrying over to the games. My daughter thinks the lessons are great. Coach Chris listens and tailors the lessons to whatever my daughter feels she needs to work on. I highly recommend lessons with Coach Chris!

My son is a serious athlete, has a crazy love for soccer and can’t get enough training. Literally. He was nervous going into his first session with Chris but came home afterward more jazzed, more full of stories about what he did with Chris, more full of enthusiasm for his next training than I’ve seen him. As a parent who wants my son to work hard to reach his potential, but also enjoy the journey, Chris was a perfect match. We’re definitely looking forward to more.

Coach Chris is a fantastic soccer coach for my son. I was impressed when my son’s first words were, “He’s a really great coach!” after his first training session with Coach Chris. Chris is really in tune with my son’s needs and focuses on the areas that need the most attention. He has goals for my son, and he shares very detailed feedback on how my son is progressing. So far, I am very impressed with the type of training, coaching, and positive impact Coach Chris is having on my high school-aged son.

Great dedicated coach with expertise

Chris was great with my two kids. Believe everything everyone else has said in their reviews, all were spot on. He was friendly, yet gave challenging drills and had a great overall demeanor, not to mention great soccer skills. Thanks for working with us!

Does a great job with my son, they work hard and have fun.

Excellent session. Chris was well prepared with drills, balls, cones, etc. He was friendly and put my teen daughter at ease right away. She got a great workout in (one of our requests was improving conditioning), but he also still was making her laugh and feel happy even while pushing and working hard. She immediately wanted more sessions.

I was very pleased with Coach Chris. He plans the sessions well, and he offers great feedback. I am sure that my daughter will benefit from working with him. My daughter enjoyed training with him, and she is ready for more sessions. I would recommend Coach Chris to anyone who wants to improve their soccer skills.

Chris was great at identifying flaws in my techniques and demonstrating how I would be able to correct them. He provided detailed feedback after the session and outlined a path for improvement moving forward. Chris is a great listener and aligned future sessions with areas in which I can improve.

Coach Chris was fantastic. My son is an intermediate soccer player, and frankly, I know nothing about soccer so it was really hard for me to practice with him myself. We wanted to find him a coach who could help him improve, and Coach Chris has been awesome. He always comes prepared with great drills that are challenging but fun and can be done 1:1. He's helping my son with his dribbling, passing, agility, ball control, all kinds of stuff. I can already see the improvement which is amazing. And he's super nice and patient - my son was a little reluctant to go to his first coaching session, but after meeting Chris, he is totally comfortable and really likes him. Highly recommended!

C. Chris is not only an excellent coach and motivator, he is incredibly easy to get along with. I thoroughly enjoyed our session and will be going back for more.

My son had a great experience and solid workout. Would love to keep going with a session or two a week! When will this rain end?! Thanks Chris.

Great session with Coach Chris Sauter. He was attentive to my son’s needs as a player and spent time before and after the session discussing the training and giving feedback. Chris is patient with his athletes and extremely encouraging. He led Micah through a variety of drills that helped increase his skill level and his confidence. I could not be happier with Coach Chris’ professionalism, knowledge, expertise, and easy nature that instantly made Micah comfortable and ready to work. We will absolutely be booking additional sessions with Coach Chris. Cheers!

Christopher is a great coach. Prior to our first session he asked detailed questions to target my goals and determine where training was needed. He is insightful, knowledgeable, and equipped with an arsenal of strategies and technics. Highly recommended!
