More About Coach Jose

A CSU Monterey Bay graduate, I have over 14 years of combined coaching experience at the youth, club, high school, college and UPSL level. Currently, I am the assistant coach for MCSC Jaguars UPSL men's and women's teams in Salinas. Soccer to me is more than just a game it's something that teaches you life lessons and puts you in quick thinking situations.

Thrive to be Better:
The passion I hold for soccer is one that gives me joy every time I'm out there on that field. As much as I enjoy playing it that much more I enjoy coaching it. It's not always about winning and losing its did you get better, did you set yourself goals and accomplish them. Through the 1-on-1 trainings it's important to me that you don't just become better on the field, but as well as off with a sense of understanding mistakes as you watch them happen and how you would do it differently if you had the chance. A player who betters their skill and mind in a positive way starts to become a leader on and off the field and passes it on to their teammates. My private lessons take place in Salinas, Marina and Watsoville, but upon my availability. I will do my best to accommodate your family with the best available soccer training in the area.

My Athletic Highlights are many. The main ones are; Playing on the Cal-North State Team for 3 years, Playing on the US Region 4 team for 1 year, Getting invited to US National Camps, Playing for Cabrillo College 2 years, Playing for CSUMB 1 year, and playing Semi-Pro in Mexico with Club Atlas.

The most memorable highlight came to me as a coach. Watching my Anzar Girls Varsity team win their 2nd league title in the school's history. It was the most memorable, because all of them came together not just as a team, but as a family and had the greatest season they had ever been apart of. That is when as a coach you see you have done them right by teaching them to be the best they can be on the field and off.

My private lessons focus on individual technique and development for new comers, intermediate, and advanced players. As a coach it is highly important that the individual receiving the training get better each and every day even is they aren't training that day. My coaching style is to accommodate the player and guide hime to find the motivation to get better. I believe in team work and working hard to be successful. Individual training includes mastery of the ball, dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting, finishing, defending, tactical play, goalie if asked, and much more.

Client Reviews

This was my son's first training session with Coach Jose and we weren't sure what to expect, but after the first session we were pleasantly surprised. Coach Jose is knowledgeable, patient, and positive. He takes the time to walk through each drill and to explain its relevance for goalkeepers. My son really enjoyed his first session and he'll definitely be back to train with Coach Jose.

Jose is awesome, our daughter really improved with her goal keeping!

Coach Jose was great. My son was skeptical at first (as all know it all 15 year olds are) but after the practice, he thanked me for booking these. He really liked the Coach and felt that he taught him in a way he could understand. I loved the exercises he did with him.

So friendly and helpful!! Thanks Jose!!

In just one session, I saw significant improvement in my son’s agility, focus, and speed. Jose is great with kids providing just the right balance of
constructive feedback and praise. We’ll be scheduling more trainings!

My 7 year old started off not wanting to come back and by the end coach Jose had changed his mind. He was very patient and explained everything to him in an age appropriate way he could understand. He was very kind. Whenever he would make a mistake coach Jose would correct him, explain what he did wrong and what he needed to change. If he needed it he would demonstrate the skill for him again. He always acknowledged when my son did something correctly. Would definitely recommend!

The session with coach Jose exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

My son had a second lesson with Coach Jose and enjoyed it. As parents, we liked what we saw with the skill building as well as core training. We will buy more sessions after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Thank you so much for everything and looking forward to meet again!

Excellent motivator, pays close attention to detail and helps making adjustments when needed. I would definitely continue working with Jose as my kids personal coach.

Coach Jose was very patience with my daughter. Seems very knowledgeable. My daughter said to me she was very nervous before they start the class But wants they started she felt relax with coach Jose. She definitely wants to come back for more classes.

Coach Jose was great. He is very knowledgeable about the sport and has the ability to see strengths and pinpoint areas for improvement. My daughter (11) was nervous about their first training but because of Jose's professionalism and encouragement, she quickly shook it off and they got right to work.

My daughter was nervous when she started her first session with Coach Jose, but was elated by the end of it. She learned so much in her first session, and felt successful and confident. Coach Jose was really kind and encouraging with his evaluation and lesson practice. We're definitely planning to work with him again and have scheduled future lessons..

We have worked with Jose several times over the past year. He's very in tune with my child's strengths and weaknesses and the sessions have been very productive.

My daughter had her first session with Jose and he was excellent! He showed a great interest in what we had to say and answered all our questions. My daughter said it was the best soccer session she has ever had and she has played club for many years so this says a lot about Jose. My daughter is looking forward to more sessions with Jose.

Jose is a great coach. Our son is 8 and he identified his strengths and weaknesses and pushes him just the right amount. I can see an improvement each session.

I recommend Jose Carlos Flores for his outstanding work for Catalyst Soccer League. Jose has been the director of several soccer camps for the past 4 years. He managed coaches and organized youth soccer players from ages 4 to 14 years of age. This year he is my assistant coach at Gavilan Community College. He is a hard worker, on-time, reliable and a good person. I can rely on him to do what he says and to be where I need him. I appreciate his assistance and would definitely recommend him.
