More About Coach Daniel

I am United States Soccer Federation (USSF) certified coach. I coach Travel Team u9 boys and and U11 boys in Alexandria. I have coached youth soccer for several schools of soccer in New York, Maryland and Virginia. I have been thoroughly involved in programs such as U6/U7 skills, U8 challenge U13 Strikers training, U10 player development program.

I enjoy working with players of all ages and levels and i believe I can make a big difference in their game.

I have great passion and love for soccer. Above all i have great knowledge about the game and I love to share my knowledge and help my players realize their true potential and help them gain self-esteem and self-confidence on and off the field.

I grew up playing soccer in my home country of Eritrea, where soccer is the most loved sport. I played soccer throughout my childhood and for my high school in my senior year where i helped my team reach the final match. i moved to the United States in 2009 and became involved in coaching almost immediately. Since then I have coached youth soccer for two different schools of soccer in New York and in Maryland. I been involved and still am coaching travel soccer for more than a year with Alexandria Soccer Association and other supplemental training programs such as U5/U6 Skills, U7/U8 Challenge, and Strikers Clinic for more than a year and half. l currently hold my USSF ā€œDā€ license and i'm working towards my ā€œCā€ license.

session plan defers from player to player. I will first determine what level the player is on, the strengths and weaknesses of my player. Then i plan a session according to what the player needs to work on.

My son really enjoys practicing with Daniel. He is very supportive of his goals and provides excellent advice.

Fantastic session. Apply, you will not regret it..

Had one lesson in 3 months

Coach Daniel is a phenomenal coach. He was well prepared for the session he had with our daughter. He listened to our expectations and ensured the session meet...no...exceed our training wishes. But most importantly, our daughter absolutely LOVED working with him. He provided her wonderful training guidance but his approach also made her feel comfortable with working with him. We can already see a vast improved in her skills! We will continue to work with him and have not doubt he will continue to improve our daughter's soccer skills.

Coach Daniel is patient, observant and confidence-inspiring! He honed in on some things that our daughter could improve on right away and had fun and targeted drills to work on that skill. We noticed a difference in our daughter's playing the following week. He's great!

Coach Daniel was simply great. He is very professional and a very kind and pleasant gentleman. He shows a genuine interest in training his students and developing their skills. I recommend him very highly to others.

My son is really enjoying working with Coach Daniel. He says he is having fun and learning a lot and really looks forward to his sessions. Very pleased!

Coach Daniel was on time to the session and very professional doing my son assessment. After the session he provided him with recommendations and homework. We are very happy to find him. Thanks Coach Daniel.

Coach Daniel did a great job with my 10 year old daughter. After only a couple of sessions, we notice considerable improvement in her foot skills.

My son has a little more confidence in himself and his footskills after 2 sessions, he looks forward to going to his sessions!

Couch DANIEL was excellent! In two hours he trained a group of 10 8-year-olds and organized a fun game for them. He was punctual and incredibly nice. Totally recommend him!

We loved Coach Daniel! He was super supportive and knowledgeable. And, he was very prompt when responding to inquiries and was super patient with this mom!

Today was my younger daughter's first visit with Daniel, but my older daughter used him for training. Daniel does a great job. My older daughter felt as though she learned a lot from him. I would recommend him to anyone.

Daniel was very patient very helpful
Very friendly and of course making jordan work hard

Coach Daniel is doing an outstanding job coaching our 17 year old son. Our son's skills have already improved in just 2 sessions (with several more sessions to follow), and our son is excited about his progress. We love Coach Daniel's enthusiasm, great energy, and positive attitude. Thank you for a fantastic coaching experience!

Coach Daniel is excellent with my 8-year old son. My son plays on an U9 travel soccer team. However, he needed additional training to improve his technique and shooting skills. After just one session with Coach Daniel, my son's skills noticeably improved and he has more confidence during the games. Coach Daniel is very patient and makes training enjoyable for my son. His performance in his soccer games has greatly improved. I highly recommend Coach Daniel!

My 7 1/2 year old son takes lessons from Coach Daniel. Daniel brings a very different perspective on coaching kids. He's friendly and yet pushes kids to their limits by virtue of his innovative drills so that they show continuous improvement. I can see an incremental improvement in my son's game after every session. Highly recommended.

Coach Daniel was fabulous! Did everything he promised and more. After only a few sessions my son's foot skills improved and he has a better understanding of finishing and scoring. We will definetly be back this fall with coach Daniel !

Coach Daniel provided excellent training and was very knowledgeable about the sport. His style of coaching made it very easy to learn and execute drills. He provided drills that can improve various areas of the game and reinforce key strengths. I look forward to working with him again.

Excellent in teaching skills and working with kids. It's no coincidence that my kid began to score goals in games after 2 sessions with Coach Dan

Coach Daniel is great. Devises lessons plan tailored for players. Gets actively involved in the process. My son really enjoys the sessions.

My 2 grandsons, 6 & 8 1/2, really like Coach Daniel. He does a great job interacting with them & keeps their attention for the entire session. They look forward to seeing him. We can tell their footwork skills have improved as well as their soccer vocabulary. The oldest just received 2 offers for traveling U9 teams & Coach Daniel deserves some of the credit. We hope to keep working with him. He's a very nice role model for the boys too!

Coach Daniel was very patient with my son. He took feedback on the areas that we felt needed improvement and planned his coaching sessions out accordingly. We did see our son's confidence and skill improve with these sessions. Thanks Coach.

Kelly really liked the session!

Coach Daniel has done a great job with my son so far in his first session. We look forward to the progress that continues. He runs his training with high energy providing the dual benefit of fitness as well as technique. My son really enjoyed the session and is excited for more.

My kids have only had one lesson with him and they already can't wait until their next lesson . Very nice and knowledgable . Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for extra coaching

Coach Daniel was a great coach! Knows how to critique while remaining supportive. Really helped me work on all aspects of the game. Would recommend him to all athletes looking to improve on a wide variety of things or one specific thing.

You are a great coach. You pushed me to my limits and that's what I need. I would love to book you before my travel try out. If not I would love to still work with you in one on one sessions.

Coach Daniel is very professional. He had a training program set out from the beginning, varied the areas he worked on, and my son showed marked improvement, particularly on his shooting strength.

Thank you so much, My boys really enjoyed you teaching them
