More About Coach Elmer

At the age of four, I started playing soccer and was primarily coached by my dad. Aside from my team practices, spending one on one training with my dad really helped development my soccer skills. I have played many different positions on a soccer team, but I played forward/striker the longest in.Now, I use many of the techniques I learned from my dad as well as from other coaches I have encountered through middle school, high school, and college.

For a soccer player, regardless of the position developing great footwork is important. Along with the development of footwork, comes trapping and kicking a soccer ball. There several ways of doing each from basic to more advanced techniques.

I am opened to working with all ages and levels because I believe my knowledge of the game is proficient from playing for many years as well as from watching the sport. I am willing to work with each player and my sessions will depend on the specific position as well as "strengths" and " areas of improvement" that will vary from player to player. I can work with a player that has very minimal experience or is advanced. I truly believe I can help a player's development on the field.

My sessions will include footwork, conditioning, agility work, ball control, shooting, crossing, dribbling and some 1- on 1 games.

I have played the sport of soccer since I can recall. My first team was when I was four years old and continue playing on weekends, even when I was playing for my school teams. I played 3 years of Middle School Soccer and played all four years of varsity soccer at St. Margaret's High School. We had four consecutive playoff appearances and we reached the CIF semi-finals in 2008. At the University of California, San Diego, I played two years of club soccer in which we competed against some Division I schools like: UCLA and SDSU. Throughout my years, I played various positions depending on the needs of the team. I enjoy playing, watching, and coaching the sport that I grew up loving.

Client Reviews

Coach Elmer was great we discussed my daughters weak points and strengths so he knew what she needs help with. My daughter was happy after her first session and she is looking forward to more sessions.

After searching for what felt like forever for the right trainer for my daughter I came across Coach Elmer and just by reading the reviews and bio I was drawn to signing my daughter up. After just one training session my daughters confidence has grown. She’s noticed a difference in her ball control and shooting. Overall, we both noticed a huge improvement and definitely recommend Coach Elmer to those who are looking to gain both knowledge and confidence in playing soccer.

Elmer has been professional throughout our initial booking. So far my child’s feedback has been positive. I believe Elmer’s approach will provide positive results for our upcoming season.

Coach Elmer has been great in helping my 7yr old improve in his skills. I sought out for a 1:1 coach to focus on my sons kicking and passing. Everyone in my sons team has already noticed a difference after only 4 sessions. I would totally recommend coach Elmer to others.

My daughter is 13 and he really pushed her and helped her with her goal keeping needs!

Coach Elmer was what my grandson needed to improve his game.

Coach Elmer is a really good coach. I feel like he explains things well to my daughter. I can see a big difference in just two sessions.

Coach Elmer was great. He was very patient and explained a lot. Thank you 🙏🏾

Coach has great patience. Our son enjoyed his first session and is excited for his next.

Coach was great! In the hour that he trained with my son, I noticed a big improvement! My son loved his style. Learned new ways of shooting. Definitely recommend 100%

Excellent coach!!!

My boys ages 6 and 8 love working with Coach Elmer. I booked sessions so they can learn basic soccer skills and improve agility since they are just starting to play sports. Coach Elmer does a great job making the training fun with various drills and manages to keep their attention for the entire hour. Both boys have shown noticeable improvement and increased confidence after just two sessions. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to help their kids feel and look more comfortable on the field.

First time with Coach Elmer and so far I’m glad we picked him . Explains things to my son very well. We will continue training with him.

Hey coach. Can we schedule for next week any days after Tuesday @ 7 AM?

We used Elmer to teach my 7 year old daughter basic soccer skills, so she would feel confident at her first soccer practice. He worked really well with her and was also very easy to schedule practice times with. We had a few hiccups and he was very accommodating. He really worked my daughter hard with running drills and other lessons, and it helped build some confidence for her. Thank you Elmer!

I highly recommend coach Elmer. He is working with my daughter who is a beginner and I can already see great development. He is very patient and my daughter is happy with him as her coach.

Coach Elmer has been a great coach for my daughter who is trying Soccer as a second sport. He was very methodical in getting her started with the basics and gradually incorporating drills that can take advantage of her athleticism. It's only been 3 sessions thus far but my daughter is enjoying the lessons and leveraging new skills learned. We will definitely continue our coaching sessions.

Coach Elmer is the coach we've been looking for our son. He's patient and knowledgeable....great work!

Coach Elmer did an amazing job with my son Patrick (10 yrs old). Patrick said the training was as good if not better than the training he gets at home with his premier club. Patrick was asleep 15 minutes into the ride home. :+)
We live in WA but visit family in San Diego often. We will continue train with Coach Elmer every time Patrick heads to San Diego. Thanks Coach Elmer!

Coach Elmer was great with my 11 year old son!

My son went to him only once so cannot really comment.

He's a good coach. He helped my son with excellent skill. My son really enjoyed the sessions, and he's looking forward to more training. Thank you coach Elmer

I really like working with Coach Elmer. Even though I've played soccer my whole life I was lacking the skills that took me to the next level. He starts with the basics and accesses your skills from there. He will critique where I need and moves onto the next drill at my pace. He can quickly detect what I'm doing wrong and help fix it. I appreciate his patience with me and knowledge of the game. I'm excited to keep learning new techniques and strategies of the game.

My daughter has had one session so far with Coach Elmer and already I see an improvement in how she dribbles the soccer ball. He is professional and patient. My daughter enjoyed her first session and we will be booking more sessions with Coach Elmer.

Coach Elmer is a great coach! We've only had our first session, but he was able to assess skills and needs and have a plan to develop skills. He's very knowledgeable and we look forward to working further with Coach Elmer.

Great guy and great Coach, Edden, my 9 year old boy loved his session and cant wait for next week for the next one. Thanks again :-)

He is very patient with younger children.

Elmer is a great Coach. I've only had one session with him so far but I already feel a difference in my foot work and it showed at Pickup the next day. Excited to keep training with him =)

UPDATE= After three sessions I have already done a ton of progress and sessions are only getting better. Elmer's drills work really well and he explains everything really clearly. I highly recommend Elmer to anyone that wants to better their soccer skills.

My 12 year old son has completed three sessions with Coach Elmer. We are so pleased with how Coach Elmer takes the time to explain and demonstrate foot work and techniques. I would highly recommend him!

My 8 year old son had his first session to work on his defensive skills and kicking. He had a lot of fun and learned a lot. He's looking forward to his next session.

I am an adult who wants to improve his skills in soccer, so I reached out to Elmer on coach up. I have had 4 sessions with Elmer and he is great! I have definitely noticed improvement in my skills. He is dedicated and committed to improving your skills from passing, dribbling, controlling the ball and shooting. He is very helpful in honing in on areas of your game that need improvement and focusing on improving them. He has a lot of knowledge of the game and he is experienced in coaching. He tailors the session to your needs and he is very interactive. I would highly recommend him.

Coach Elmer really took the time to get to know my skill level and was able to identify the areas that I need to work on. I felt challenged during the session with both conditioning and skill drills. I would recommend Coach Elmer to anyone looking to improve their soccer skills.

Coach Elmer is a terrific coach! He gives clear, progressive instruction, is challenging but encouraging, and covers all aspects of the game while emphasizing what is most important to me at my current stage of ability.

I've accomplished 4 training sessions with Coach Elmer, and I'd like to comment that he is an excellent coach who inspires a lot of confidence. He quickly found out what areas of my game needed improvement and created a training program that was tons of fun, yet challenging for me at the same time. I have seen a vast improvement in my technical skills and my approach to soccer since I started training with him. Definitely 5 Stars!!
