Private Coaching Experience: Have 7+ years private coaching youth athletes, whom have been or are aggressively recruited and have successfully made NPL - MA Elite, Olympic Development Program and high school varsity teams rosters. In working with clients, I can prepare a single session, 6 week session and 3 month session plan which include pre, mid and post evaluation period, supported by each session's documentation. Evaluation tests are applied outside of private training (If players are in off-season, I often invite players to attend pick up games with supervision from parents (2v2, 4v4, 8v8 and 11v11) with various skill levels to evaluate the progression of the player's developmental goal.

Players working with me will learn ball control realistic to game-like situations, players will be able to control the ball quicker and place themselves in advantageous positions. Training will be customized to the players' desired positions because passing, shooting, dribbling, body positioning and movements vary based on the positions being played (EG: forwards/strikers need to learn to be comfortable playing with the defense at their back)

Feedback from past students include:
"I am able to play multiple positions on the field even though I initially was training to become a better defender"
" It seems the game is slower because I am able to control the ball faster and have more time to make a good decision"
"My high school coach said I have very good fundamentals when crossing, passing and shooting"
"Since working with coach Henry, my touches have made it easier for my teammates to receive a ball from me such as long balls, short balls, leading balls, etc."

I have a strong soccer pedigree, played high school top division in Miami, Florida (Miami Killian High School 1989-1991)
Chronic Renal Disease prevented any further athletic accomplishment which resulted in a full transplant in 2010, was slated to attend the Bundasliga's 1860 Football U19 Academy Team
Played college intramural and was always asked to attempt at becoming a walk-on at Northeastern University's NCAA division 1 team
Various adult leagues 1998-2003
Father played in the 1974 FIFA world cup. I grew up in a locker room and had the privilege of learning all aspects of the game from highly qualified coaches and have been able to foresee and adapt to the game's various evolution. I am formally educated and certified through the U.S. Soccer Federation and hold a college degree as well.

The goal of the customized training sessions is to improve each player's touch, dribbling, passing and athleticism so they can put themselves in the best position when making a soccer movement. My purpose is to get the player to understand the technique, why they are doing it and how this technique becomes a soccer skill while playing the game.

All sessions begin with a warm up that's both physical and mental, this will allow the player to dynamically warm up his/her muscles as well as his/her nervous system which provides the player with a routine allowing him/her to calm some anxieties and adjust to that session's climate and field conditions. Players will typically gravitate towards a specific routine which they find themselves executing subconsciously throughout their playing career, all high level athletes and good soccer players have one.

Technical training always include drills which simulate game like situations and engage muscle memory. I use a combination of my own rebounding boards and pop-up defenders which prepares the players to face typical game and team-training situations (bouncing balls, high balls, low balls, driven balls, obstacles the have the same foot print as a human defender, cones mostly serve as playing-space markers)

Training session also include a video analysis component to review and address fundamental techniques, it's important for the players to view themselves in slow motion executing and repeating the technique properly, it is counter productive to training incorrectly as the body and mind tend to remember bad habits faster than good ones. The players' video is compared to a database of athlete executing that technique correctly.

Players will be provided with training assignment for working alone, and those techniques will be evaluated at the next session through both easier and more challenging drills and tests to determine the progression level.

Every drill include a ball control, decision making, endurance and SAQ (speed, agility and quickness) component, this is important as I want each session to be as productive as possible.

Every training session will include a "take home skills" assignment for the player to work on prior to the next session. In addition, the session will be followed up with a written evaluation documenting the session, which will be emailed within 1 day after the session. Parent's of players will have the ability to access any session's video analysis which will include my commentary and technical evaluation, as well as side by side comparison to a database of athlete executing that drill correctly. I use Hudl Technique.

Client Reviews

Over all very good coach. Coach Henry has a ton of knowledge on the game and helps players of all skill levels progress in the sport. Even if you play at high level you can always sharpen your skills and I think that coach Henry does amazing at helping me and other progress.

Coach Henry was fantastic! He was super responsive in terms of booking the session. He showed up on time and was so good with our son. He understands how to keep it fun even when pushing them to develop their skills. I have very limited soccer knowledge, but I do know as soon as he left our son said "I like him A LOT" and then asked if he could train with Coach Henry every day! And our son said he learned a lot, which is something he never says. He can do a whole week of camp and claim he didn't learn a thing, but with an hour and fifteen minutes with Coach Henry he learned MANY things. Our son can't wait to train with Coach Henry again. I would definitely recommend him!

Thank you Coach Henri for the high quality of your training sessions. They are demanding and they help me pushing the limits to improve each time we meet. I really enjoy the time spent with you and I appreciate all your feedback.

Great first session. Field was great. Set up was safe. The girls were pushed in a positive way.
Henry was wonderful and enthusiastic.
Our daughter is looking forward to booking more sessions.

I highly recommend Coach Henry. He is very knowledgeable about the game and does an outstanding job with the athletes! To see how much my son has learned and improved over the course of his training is simply amazing! Thank you!!!

Coach Henry is a fantastic coach. He takes the time to discuss the primary points of each position, evaluate, discuss. He's an effective teacher who truly understands the mechanics of soccer and the importance of how each position needs to work together as a team. His evaluations and commitment to improving your skills are real.

Coach Henry was great to work with. He took the time to explain things to me during our session and I appreciate that very much! Looking forward to our next session!

Coach Henry was excellent. My 13 year old boy, and 10 year old had scheduled a session together, and my daughter was hiding out in the car and didn’t want to play and coach Henry came out to the car and convinced her to be his”assistant” after 4 minutes she was also playing. He worked on their foot skills through dribbling, shooting, passing. He also helped them with their form and he ended off with a fun game of soccer Golf :) my daughter got there trying to make a deal to play only half the time but coach Henry’s interaction and patience had her playing the whole time. We will be booking again.

Henry has well prepared the boys for high school, the players have strong technical and tactical foundations
thank you so much, this fall, I made my high school JV team as a freshman, scored 13 goals during the season and made the ODP roster, 1 of the best 25 is amazing, I would not be able to do so without working with you this summer
I was lucky enough to catch this game and all I can say is WOW. What a great team! The teamwork was excellent! It was a really good game, well played and well coached. The best thing was even after going a goal down they worked so so hard. Well done players, coaches and parents. You should all be so proud.
Yesterday, we took Oliver for a tryout at Boston SC - Seacoast United. It was a one-on-one tryout with their coaching director, and it went very well" " Many thanks, in advance, Leroy
Just want to say thank you so much as always for your dedication to our boy (and all the boys). Ellis has grown so much on the field and off and we are very grateful
