More About Coach Dominic

Recognized nationally as one of the top 30 coaches under the age of 30 in North America back in 2017, I’m currently the assistant coach and head of recruitment for the New York Cosmos, now playing in NISA, the USA's third professional tier. Before this I spent two years as an academy coach with RCD Espanyol in Barcelona, and worked as an assistant coach at St. John's University with the men's soccer team.

I’ve been fortunate enough to help develop several US national team players such as Tim Parker (NY Red Bulls) and Matt Turner (New England Revolution), so I'd love to use my knowledge and experience to help improve players in the local area during this off-season!

I played semi-professionally in the English national conference division prior to coming to America as a student athlete, where I was named a three time All American in college. After college I had a brief professional playing career in England with Crawley Town and in Iceland with IBV.

Training sessions are focused around two things - fun and learning. All players, regardless of level, want to enjoy what they do. When they’re enjoying what they’re doing, learning happens naturally.

Everything we do is tailored to your goals in order to develop technically, tactically, physically and mentally to the highest possible levels.

Client Reviews

After one session with Dominic, I've been extremely impressed by his positive attitude and enthusiasm from our very first interaction. Our son's soccer experience is limited and he can be very shy - but d was undaunted. He really put himself on our son's level, and emphasized his commitment to find ways to reach him as a coach. To me this is the definition of a great coach - he is clearly able and willing to meet a player at his or her level, be it professional or absolute beginner. After only one session our son has learned so much. We're so happy with coach Dominic.

Very kind, helpful and shares my ambition to improve my game on a regular basis. Would highly recommend.

Coach Dom is simple amazing! Made me feel at ease straight away, communicated like a champ, explained things clearly and uses the best analogies! I really could not recommend him any higher. Absolutely love working with coach Dom!

Coach Dominic was great to work with. I was excited to find coachup---being that I am home for a school break and in need of a way to continue my soccer training. i liked that we worked on position-specific drills.

My sons session with Coach Dominic was simply fantastic, I knew he’d been missing training and practice so these 1-1 sessions after perfect. Coach Dominic is brilliant, professional and has great expertise of the game and how to get the best out of players. I would highly recommend him he knows how to train elite players.

I had my first session with Coach Dominic and left the session feeling very positive and hopeful about my potential to improve in my soccer skills. I am hoping to play in a co-ed league and have some confidence on the field in the Spring, and after my first session with Coach Dominic, I actually believe that is going to be possible. Coach Dominic was not only a great trainer, providing great tips and guidance, but he is very nice and supportive, and put me at ease. I believe he really loves what he does, and that energy is contagious in the session. I feel I am in very good hands with Coach Dominic. Not to mention, he was very great with communication, which I very much appreciate. I look forward to our next session. I would definitely recommend Coach Dominic to anyone - people of all ages, skill levels, genders etc. He is a very personable person and I think could make anyone feel confident and supported on the field.

Coach Dominic is a great coach. He had well planned sessions and coached each segments well for my son. My son enjoyed sessions and came away with some pointers as well. I will definitely recommend him to others.

Coach Dominic was a great coach--arrived on time, discussed the plan in advance, and led the player through a fun, engaging, and intense workout. She had a great time and can't wait for another session. Thank you!

Coach Dominic has worked with our 9 year old daughter for a few sessions now. He is pretty amazing with her. Took a ton of time upfront to understand my view of her strengths, weaknesses and what motivates her...then he took time to observe her himself in games...then he came up with fun, engaging practices. She is learning so much already, enjoying doing the work and competing with him every practice. My wife commented that she loved the fact each time she asks our daughter how practice was she has a huge smile and says great.

My training session with Coach Dominic was really great! The drills were fun, challenging and made me feel like a better player. He was very detailed as to how the drills would help me in my specific position and work on my weaknesses. I’m looking forward to more sessions in the future!

My daughter, 14, is an ECNL and ODP goalkeeper. When not training with her clubs, Dominic has been her personal trainer. Dominic is incredible to work with. He’s an active listener who developed an integrated program to assist her develop skills she needed and refine the skills she already has. He’s great at explaining his approach, soliciting questions and supporting both the player and the parents. His professional experience and drilling has prepared her to engage at all levels of play. He’s encouraging and supportive while also giving direct, honest feedback on developmental areas. We look forward to continuing to work with Dominic!

I've been training with Dom for about a year and he's really helped to improve my game. I'm in casual adult leagues and have been playing since I was a kid, but always wanted to work on the flaws in my game. Dom has really helped me hone my skillset and given me the tools so that I can also work on my game with or without him there. He's supportive, easy to talk to, receptive to feedback and adjustments, and always early or on time to our sessions. I can't wait to for our next session and to take all that I've learned out onto the pitch!

I play ECNL and have been working with Dom for a few months. He has made me much more confident and helped me to understand the game. He makes things very easy to understand and the exercises we do together are always fun and challenging, I love it!

Coach Dom is great to work with, he understands you on a personally level and is able to make practices very specific to your goals. He has improved my first touch, dribbling and shooting and made me stronger and faster than before. I look forward to the next session.

I love training with Coach Dom! He helps me feel confident and we have a lot of fun at training, the time flies by! Very enjoyable and he helps me play better for my Co-Ed league in the city!

Coach Dominic has been helping me prepare for college. I will be a freshman next year going to play D1. As a DCM, I wanted someone who could help take my game to the next level with positional training and Coach Dominic has done that. I think I will have a chance to be a regular starter as a freshman thanks to the work we are doing together. I can't wait for the next session because I know I am getting better with each one.

Coach Dom is the best! My son has improved SO MUCH! since we started working with him last month! Top coach and top person! Highly recommend!

Coach Dominic is an excellent coach! He arrives early, has everything ready to go, and tailors the training to suit my son’s needs. I really have been blown away by the training he’s done with him and have seen such a big improvement in the time they’ve been working together. We would recommend any players out there looking to get better to work with Coach Dominic!

We had an excellent session today with Coach Dominic. He’s been coaching my son James for about six months now and we have been blown away by his improvement! Dominic is very responsive, understands exactly what James needs, and tailors the training sessions to meet those needs. He's a fantastic coach that we love working with and highly recommend!

My 11 year old son Matteo has been training regularly with Coach Dominic for the last 18 months. I asked Coach to work with him 1-2x week because of his professional experience with Spanish academies (my son has been playing with Barça NY) and also the U.S. college/professional game. Dominic has brought an extra dimension to the training that my son has been receiving at his academy where the emphasis is more on the group and not the individual. The focus of the training sessions in recent times have been on tactical situational recognition and technical problem solving – 2 aspects of coaching that Dominic excels at. In the short term Dominic has been helping Matteo to improve his performance at his very next game each week while in the long term he is helping him to grow to become a more mature, skillful and decisive player and person both on and off the field.

I’m very happy with the progress that I’ve seen over the last 18 months working together and I’m equally happy to recommend Dominic to other serious soccer players looking to make the leap to higher ranks. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing both the good work together and the progress continue.

Thanks for all your efforts Coach!

My daughter had a great session with Coach Dominic! He is extremely knowledgable, professional and responsive. He asked a lot of questions before our session and came prepared with a plan tailored to my daughter's position and level of play, focusing on the areas for development we had identified. The drills were innovative (different from anything she's done before), challenging and fun. We look forward to booking another session soon!

Coach Dom coached my son Joe for two years during his sophomore and junior years of high school. Dom constantly challenged Joe in the best possible ways, always getting the best out of him, which played an instrumental part in Joe getting a scholarship to Lafayette College to play Division 1 soccer where he was a two year team captain. That wouldn't have been possible without Coach Dom's help. He's a great coach who helps develops players to reach their full potential. Ken DeStefano, father to Joe DeStefano
