More About Coach Hieu

As I have played with many teams for fun over the last few years in Portland, OR and Tigard,OR, some people asked me how to play soccer as they found me as a good player. I then have taught many of their kids to much better soccer players over a few months. At the beginning I started coaching some of my adult teammates. After that, they referred me to coach many of the younger relatives.
Not only that I can set up great session, I can also give them a lot of advice for self-practice. I usually met them three times a week including once before the practice. We practiced on Portland State campus as they have amazing field here. In fact, it just got better since they just finished fixing it over the last 2 months.

A bit about me, I have been playing soccer for 12 years. I played semi-professional for U-18 for my city, Hanoi, in Vietnam for more than 2 years. Then I came to Portland for studying abroad. I played with Portland State University team for 1 year. I love soccer. And I am looking to share my knowledge of soccer with others. Besides just playing and practicing in the team, I always read more books and assisted the coach in training.

I start by asking the client what they believe they need to work on the most and then develop a personal plan based on each client. If the client does not have any preferences, I focus on the technical side of the game trying to improve skills and passing.

I have the knowledge of how to play and the training technique of any position in the field except for goalkeeping. Depends on which position you want to play I will customize the session to meet your needs best.

Depend on your level of experience with soccer I will run my drills on ball control, without the ball movement, first touch, passing (long and short passes), dribbling, shooting, heading, and so on. After each drill, I will give you some tips to practice by yourself.

As a soccer enthusiast myself, I try to keep the practice fun, simple, and effective.

I have been working with coach Hieu for several weeks now and I am so glad I found him. He has been very patient with me as a beginner to soccer and an older player. He is very professional and able to work with my ever changing schedule. I would highly recommend him!

Scheduled coach Hieu for my son and found him to be great at 1 on 1 coaching. Will be scheduling more hours with him as I believe it will help my son push forward.

I stopped playing soccer a year ago and im going back to play with my team after i finished my training. Hieu is a good coach and know what is doing.. im looking forward to take more sessions with him to learn more.

Coach Hieu helped me improve some basic techniques such as first touch, passing, power kicks, ball control, juggling, and visual awareness of the field. He was able to customize our session to my preferred areas of improvement as well suggested other areas I should practice. He gave me very specific directions and demonstrated each skill and helped me get better little by little, and he also told me how to keep practicing these moves on my own to get even better. He was friendly and made me feel comfortable, even when I felt clumsy and out of shape. Our session started about an hour late, but he was flexible about staying a little later to practice. I would definitely work with Coach Hieu again and highly recommend him for beginners like me as well as much more skilled players who could benefit from individualized feedback and training.

Coach Hieu was a great coach. He has a very positive, engaging, and encouraging way of teaching. You can tell that he loves soccer and very passionate about it, which makes his lesson very fun! I would recommend Coach Hieu to anyone.

I am 40 year old. I have no experience in playing soccer but fit and stay active. I want to play with a good league team in the near future. I was recommended coach Hieu by my friend who plays soccer with him. In our first session, he taught me a lot on how to control and pass the ball. He paid attention to details. He showed me how to perfect whichever technique we were working on. He gave me tips on how to train on myself and the objectives of all the training we were doing. I highly recommend coach Hieu if you are looking to learn more serious soccer!
