Client Reviews

Fernando is a fantastic coach. My son very much enjoyed training with him. It is obvious that Fernando has a lot of experience as a soccer player as well as a coach.

Daughter is really enjoying sessions with Fernando!

He is very good, knowledgeable and most of all very patient with a young athlete. We like him very much because he immediately corrects what needs to be corrected and praises on good points of the young athlete which helps boost up more the eagerness in learning.

good communication, on time, kids like him.

This was our first experience with one-on-one training, and Coach Fernando was a great coach to start with. He was set up and ready to work with our 11 yo (beginner) daughter as soon as she arrived, and effectively utilized all of the given time to focus on the areas that she wanted to feel more confident in. His positive attitude and encouragement was well received and appreciated.
We highly recommend Coach Fernando, and we look forward to more sessions with him soon!

Very good job Leilah! Super attitude, and gave 100 percent the whole time!

Fernando is excellent. My son enjoyed the time with him.

Fernando was an outstanding 1 on 1 coach for my 16 year old son who’s trying to move up a level. He always had everything out and ready to go when we arrived, kept in mind my son’s positions and goals, and evaluated both his fitness and skills through custom sessions to challenge him and give him feedback throughout. My son left each session exhausted yet encouraged and really enjoyed working with Fernando.

What An amazing coach! He was wonderful with our son and a pleasure to meet.

Fernando was great. He came prepared with a workout plan for my son based on the background I had provided. The session was chock full of skills and drills and my son responded very favorably to him and worked hard. We will definitely look to work with Fernando again.

Coach Fernando is awesome!! He helped my son with his confidence and gave him some great positive coaching advice and encouragement. My son was smiling the whole practice- seriously! He taught him a lot in the practice, making the most of the time, but keeping it fun for my son. He also let my youngest son join in at the end. He was easygoing, had a great positive attitude, and absolutely knows what he's doing on the field and as a coach. Will definitely look forward to more sessions for my sons with Coach Fernando.

Helped me gain speed and agility, pushed me very hard which is what I wanted as a Varsity soccer player. Fernando knows how to teach ball control and how to work out of tight spaces. He is also very easy to talk too
