More About Coach Erica

I have been coaching for 4 years in technical, strength/conditioning, and movement patterns involved in the game of soccer. I'm a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and a D License Soccer Coach. I incorporate the strength and injury preventative work needed to excel as a total soccer player.

I'm passionate about exercise science, 1 v 1s, building foundational skills, motor skills, and developing confident ball control. I have trained both girls and boys soccer players, including former professional men's players from Sweden and Portugal and girls in D1 and the Olympic Development Programs. I have worked with all ages from 7-42 years old.

Every session is different. The first session will consist of a basic evaluation of foot skills, shooting, speed/agility, defending, 1 v 1s, and first touch. After the evaluation I then formulate a plan of attack and customize each player's sessions to strengthen their strengths, but also improve their weaknesses. Each session will always incorporate technical training as well as game situation training. Also specialize in strength and conditioning, as well as functional movement training to help prevent injury.

I have extremely high expectations of my players in terms of effort. I'm here to coach your kid and teach them good soccer. To learn the game, it involves effort, consistency, and practice. I need all of my players giving me 100% when I'm giving 200%.

Coach Erica did an amazing job training my daughter! She learned key fundamentals that she just wouldn't have learned playing rec soccer alone (footwork, ball handling, etc.). Already seeing a lot of improvement after just a few sessions. Also appreciate Coach Erica's flexible schedule. Will definitely be scheduling more sessions soon!

My daughter really enjoyed her lessons with Coach Erica! V

Coach Erica did a great job; using progression training techniques, and explaining complex technicals in plain, easy language. Thank you!

Coach Erica is a great coach! We were recommended to her by one of my daughter's friends, and we were very happy with the session! I feel like the first session already has helped their footwork. Coach Erica had them work on a variety of footwork skills and shooting. They really enjoyed it! I will recommend Coach Erica to their teammates.

I've really enjoyed getting to learn the game from her. Coach Erica is great at helping you develop your game with the fundamentals to advanced techniques, and I've progressed a lot since beginning to learn from her.

Erica is a great coach!!!!!

Fun first session with Coach Erica and looking forward to learning more from her!

Coach Erica is great. Very knowledgeable about soccer skills/mechanics and how to best achieve improvement in an efficient 1 hour time frame. My daughter's foot-skills, balance, and explosiveness have improved in just a couple of lessons.

Coach Erica was very welcoming and immediately made my daughter very comfortable. She quickly identified several areas for improvement to help her get ready for tryouts, and after only a few lessons, my daughter is already much more confident and is showing dramatic improvement in ball handling. Plus, she is excited about practicing at home.

Coach Erica is a great coach! Angelina really enjoys her sessions with Coach Erica!
