More About Coach Joao

I am a licensed soccer coach, a player and a fan of the sport! I was born and raised in Brasilia, Brazil, where I learned to play and love the "jogo bonito."

I have coached for Oregon Soccer Academy (OSA), North East United (NEU), brief assistant coaching with Warner Pacific College in Portland, OR. I have also coached futsal camps at Portland Futsal in SE Portland. I currently work with Futeboltraining, and I have a list of private clients.

I am great with kids, and I have a lot to pass on to the next generation of players. I still play competitively, and I really enjoy working with serious players who are looking to take their game to the highest level possible. However, I am great with kids in general, and I am happy to develop players who are beginners.

I have worked with professional players preparing to play international tournaments, college players, and I also currently compete with and against the best Amateur soccer players in the state of Oregon.

I have a lot of great training "toys" that will make this fun, challenging, and rewarding!

Discounts are given for group sessions!

2x NAIA Honorable Mention All-American, 2x NAIA 1st Team All-Conference for CCC, 2-year captain for Warner Pacific College, Multi Men's Amateur Champion at the top competition in Oregon (Oregon Premier Soccer League, OPSL; and Greater Portland Soccer District, GPSD) over the past 6 years.

During our sessions I emphasize on ball handling, teaching new moves, and improving overall striking of the ball. I also like to do drills that recreate game-like situations to improve decision-making. All sessions include other drills to improve hand-eye coordination, and body control in order to make you the best all-around athlete you can be!

I've been playing soccer for a long time, but after a few surgeries I needed that extra push to get back into the game. He surprised me by making me work hard while not hurting my knee. I even did some drills I had never done before. He is very nice and patient while kicking your butt :) definitely recommend!

My daughter loves going to sessions with JB. He has helped her improve her confidence and she really enjoy's how he coaches and the things he teaches her.

Simply awesome

Coach JB has made an excellent impression with Simeon and I! He is totally engaged in the player and the sport. We are very impressed! I see him making Simeon PRO ready really soon! :-)

Very helpful, has already improved my skills and confidence after only 2 sessions! Can't wait for my club season to start!

JB has been great for my 13 year old. He gives him plenty to work on and think about in between sessions.

I would definitely recommend Coach JB!! He is very professional, keeps in contact, always returns my emails with in hours. My daughter has loved working with him! He makes the practice time fun while challenging her to improve on what she already knows and push herself to that next level to become a the player she wants to be. In the few sessions we have had she has learned some great technique and her ball handling has improved. We have noticed she is playing with a new confidence as well. You can tell that he is passionate about the game and wants to share that with his students. He is a great coach!!

Good impression, drove all the way to my brother's high school for the practice. He is very sincere and straight forward. Thank you

my soon has shown so much in his game, thank you for helping us find JB

JB, yo man, I always knew you were good, but trying to chase you around on Saturday gave me a whole new level of respect for your game. You're hella quick man, good stuff and much respect. Hope you're doing well and hopefully i can play for IPS again in the future so i can just pass it to you instead of trying to chase after you. Much respect, until next time brother, Brendan." - 9/17/2014
JB - Thanks for being patient with us as we have another option to talk with you about. Carly and Caprial have decided (and their parents fully support) that their sessions with JB are more valuable to them then the RTC sessions. "We are more challenged with JB.. Yahooo! This is a huge realization for both of them and says they are really thinking about their own development. - K.
Hey JB! Just wanted to let you know that Atticus made RTC! We can't thank you enough for all you attention and coaching you've given Atticus! You have helped him so much!! Thank you! Jackie, Adam, & Atticus!
