More About Coach Devala

I am currently a professional Goalkeeper in the USL league. I have played professionally for 12 years now in over 5 countries. I have coached for 10 years now, and I have done team training and collegiate training for 4 years.

My years of playing experience have helped me understand what is needed for each player to rise above his peers and achieve the next level of his abilities.

I coach not only the physical part of soccer, but also the mental part. Sports is majorly mental and I believe the self confidence and self belief and understanding of the mental struggles, combined with physical drills, is the top form of training.

Client Reviews

Coach Devala is an excellent coach who I recommend for any soccer athlete!

Regardless of the position you play, Coach Devala will help you improve your game. He takes time to customize training sessions by assessing your skills and knowledge of the game to help you grow and reach the next level. He is personable and communicates well which makes training with him enjoyable. My son has learned several new moves and strategies to use in his games. Coach Devala has also shown him some exercises that will benefit him as well as discussed the importance of proper nutrition and hydration. It is obvious Coach Devala has worked with some great coaches over the years and he is eager to share that combination of knowledge and experience. If you are looking for a well-rounded Coach, I recommend you work with him. You won’t be disappointed and your time will be well spent.

My 10 yr old daughter has had multiple sessions with Coach Devala and I couldn't be more pleased with the progress she has made. Coach does a great job relating to her and keeping her engaged and excited about getting better. It is not often someone of Coach Devala's caliber is available for private lessons and I highly recommend him!

My Daughter has loved working with Devala. The one on one training has greatly helped her improve her skills. He is highly encouraging and positive. After each training session she walks off the field in a great mood with her confidence higher. We look forward to more training sessions with him.

Off to a great start with Coach Devala. He is patient and approachable, already assessing my son--bringing ideas of how to work on the areas that need improvement.

Coach devala is an amazing trainer to work with. His drills and sessions are skillfully planned to work all aspects of goal keeping. He has fixed my bad habits, and can easily pin point what i need to do to succeed. Working with him his never dull and i would recomend him to any one who is looking to take there skills to the next level

Coach Devala has been a great influence and coach for my 9 year old even after only a few sessions. It is great to see my son excited about training again, he looks forward to each session with him.

Devala coaches with me at Rush academy in Denver, and he's been an amazing addition to our club. I strongly recommend him.
I have coached Devala and he is an excellent player with lots of enthusiasm to become better day in and day out! He has great character and I loved working with him.
Devala has helped me coach at my goalkeeper academy South Florida GK for many years now. He has been such an asset to our academy and has helped my goalkeepers maximize their abilities. I strongly recommend any goalkeeper looking to play at a high level to work under Devala.
