More About Coach Jalen

I have coached at the high school level for a year. I coached at Mount Saint Joseph high school alongside the head varsity coach, Mike St. Martin. He was a huge help in showing me tactics as well as vocalizing my opinion on the field. I also trained kids on the side here and there, but I want to continue to do more with coaching.

I am a professional soccer player in the MLS (2014- present). This is my 5th year. I played at Wake Forest University for college for 2 years (2012-13). Before Wake, I played for D.C. academy (09-12). I think being in the MLS 5 years is an accomplishment within itself. It's a forever changing league and to become a mainstay is a testament to myself.

I do not specialize in anything. I think I have a broad range of what I can coach. I am willing to work with any positions. Keepers would be harder to me being that I know nothing of goalies. I have played defense and midfield most of my career. I am not a forward, but going against great forwards I know that as a defender what gets us the most and vice versa for my defenders. Midfielders are the engine of the team and would love to teach what most people overlook from them.

Client Reviews

Coach Jalen was fantastic. He spoke to me in advance to see what I wanted my 8 year old son to work on and then he put together a session covering all my asks. After just one session, I already see a difference in my son's performance. I would recommend Coach Jalen to anyone looking for additional help for their son or daughter.

Coach Jalen is an amazing trainer. He has a gift for working with kids. Definitely recommend.

Coach Jalen provided an amazing session today, the session was well-constructed and perfectly executed. The drills he gave were challenging to do but really helped me improve significantly as a player. He's very polite, humble, and an overall great coach to train with. I highly recommend him for any player looking to improve their own set of skills and their understanding of the game. Hopefully, we'll be able to train again in the near future.

Great session. Coach Jalen, provided challenging and constructive drills while being super supportive. My 13 year old said it was the best coach and coaching experience that he’s ever had.

Both of my kids had a blast. Jalen is incredibly upbeat and kept them engaged from start to finish. Highly recommended.

We had our first practice with Coach Jalen today and are more than excited about what he is going to do for our son!! Coach Jalen is knowledgeable about the game and understands how to work with younger players. We have lived all across the U.S. and Coach Jalen is by far the best personal instructor we have seen. We recommend him for anyone loooking for a personal trainer for their child.

Coach Jalen was an amazing coach. After just one session, my two boys were totally thrilled about their training session and wanted to work with him again. He is clearly a talented soccer player with a gift for coaching. We are already booked more sessions and are excited to work with Coach Jalen again.

Coach Jalen is a fantastic coach! My son was a little apprehensive at first during his first training session. However, Coach Jalen immediately put him at ease and immediately started the rigorous and well-planned training session. My son learned new foot skills during his first session, so much that he is eager to put them to practice at his travel team's upcoming scrimmage. Not only did he acquire new foot skills and tactics, but he was also taught how to further develop his field awareness. At the end of the training session, my son was exhausted but truly excited at his newfound skills! My son is looking forward to his next training session with Coach Jalen. My son and I highly recommend Coach Jalen.
