More About Coach Daniel

Have coached at the competitive level for the past five years at Velocity FC and worked for U.S soccer foundation for 4 years.

Coaching Experience as a Coach in Interacting With the Coaches Based on the information that I have gained in the role of coach, I have learned that interaction with the coachee involves an understanding of the basic foundations in Appreciative coaching, which focuses on 5 main principles. • Construction Principle • Positive Principle • Simultaneous Principle • Poetic Principle • Anticipatory Principle As pointed out in the Construction Principle and Positive Principle, coaching sometimes involves bringing out the positive attributes and successes of a person, rather than the negative or their failures.

Exposed to and trained in all positions of competitive play; currently specializing in defensive responsibilities, requiring delaying, channelization, acting as 1st and 2nd defender, tackling, counter-attacking, and support of ranging goalkeeper. Skilled in defensive techniques, including delaying, heading, slide tackling, shielding, and stripping. Captain in High School and L.A Legends Club

Skilled with both right and left feet.

High intensity, high concentration. Excellent timing and anticipation, positioning, reading the game. Knowledgeable in rules of the game, team and individual strategy. High pain threshold.

Strong leadership skills on and off the field. Take-charge mentality. Have won many championshis throughout my career: CIF champions 2002 and state cup and vegas tournaments

Coaching is about learning specific skills, to improve performance or to prepare for advancement. To an outsider, coaching situations may look similar. All are based on an ongoing, confidential, one-on-one relationship between coach and learner. Yet each teaching situation can be quite diverse and some of these distinctions are important to recognize, if only to foster informed choice by everyone involved. ALWAYS start my session with warm up first follow by agility ladder and condition follow by touching finishing, dribbiling shooting and last but not least scrimmage. Also one and one confrontation.

Client Reviews

Coach Daniel was great with my 6 year old, can’t wait to book more sessions!

Coach Daniel is a great coach! I learn a lot from him. I feel more confident to control the ball.

Coach Daniel was patient and also very knowledgeable. No time wasted went from one drill to another. My daughter loved it

We got Coach Daniel to help our son to work on fundamental and gain a better skill set. He has worked with our son for about 6 sessions and we like the drills that he has him do and also the work on fundamentals (dribbling, kicking, etc.). He makes him work but our son enjoys the training. We've seen him apply some of these skills during his regular games which makes the training worth it. Will definitely continue using coach Daniel in future.

Coach Daniel is fantastic! We decided to get a private coach for my 10y.o daughter who's been playing soccer since she was 6 y.o. but needed to develop and enhance her soccer skills. Coach Daniel has the patience and ability to properly train and introduced new ball tricks to my daughter that she now has gained confidence while playing and enjoys practicing her new skills when she is at home playing with her ball. Coach Daniel is also very motivating and my daughter LOVES her training sessions with him. Thank you Coach Daniel!

Coach Daniel is exactly what my daughter needed. With just a brief summary of what my daughter needs to improve on, Daniel hit all the right drills and more. My daughter can be timid and doesn't get comfortable with just anyone. I asked her if she liked the session, she replied "I LOVED IT". He kept her heart rate up and on her toes the whole time. He makes you work! but has the patience to stop and make sure that you have the correct form as your going. He is noticing other areas that she can use work in and is aiming to see her improve. we are very happy with what we see so far!

Daniel is an awesome coach, my daughter feels like he’s very knowledgeable, and has been helping her with her soccer skills.

great coach and really motived to help you out to improve you game!

Daniel is great. My son came home feeling more confident. Looking forward to more sessions with him!

Hello All,

I want to take the time to write a review about Daniel. He is extremely patient and very professional. He motivates you and my son loves him. My son was intimidated at his first session, but the next section which was just over an hour ago, my son was so proud of himself. The confidence level was extremely over-the-top. This is what Daniel does to your child. Some of the equipment he uses fascinates me. I watched my son run down the field with A parachute tied to his waist and Daniel motivating him to run faster and faster so the parachute opens up and lifts off the ground. This makes your Child become faster. Once he gets to the end of the field he then turns around and dribbles the ball back down the field as fast as he can. Coach Daniel had my son do it five times. That was just one of the many different techniques he teaches. If your child needs work in any soccer position Coach Daniel is the person you want. He is the best and I am going to have him teach my son for a long long time.

Amazing!! Coach Daniel really has the talent! I was very impressed in how he trained my daughter. So much respect, dedication, patient, he's such a motivator. We did book him for only one session, just to see how my daughter would like the training, but she was stunned. She definitely wants to keep training with Coach Daniel.
