COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: please specific what training you are looking for online or in person in your email. Open to both options!

** I will opening up again in March 2021 for coaching and in light of recent changes with pandemic, I will be altering my sessions to make sure that training is as safe as possible for both the athletes and myself. This would require masks for both athletes and parents upon meeting. If the athlete is doing individual skill work where I can be a safe distance of over 6 feet away but still able to observe and make corrections, athletes will not be required to wear a mask. Any time we are less then 6 feet apart or doing 1v1 work mask with be required for both myself and the athlete. This is hard with cardiovascular exercise but until case loads are down this will be a requirement to train with me, but I will of course give more frequent breaks throughout the session so the athlete can stop for air as much as needed. Please make sure you child has adequate gear for weather conditions, as many balls as they have available to bring to a session, and PLEASE MAKE SURE they always have enough water with them for an hour session. Thank you :) **

I began coaching as an assistant in 2012-2013 for my local U-15 rec league team in California. I began instructing private session in 2015 Washington to two athletes, ages 8-11, who where a part of the Federal Way Soccer Club Team while I was a playing for Highline Community College Women's Soccer. These two would train with me around twice a week outside of their normal practices for club.

I continued coach private sessions for a 15 year old forward for the summer of 2016 in my hometown of California while I was a member of Eastern Oregon University Women's Soccer. She was playing at the JV level in high school but was considering playing college soccer. From the beginning we established her goal of playing at the collegiate level, and therefore her training was tailored towards skills that would be expected of her at that level. Whether that be community college or NAIA/NCAA playing levels, we focused in on fundamental tactile skills that coaches look for when recruiting. Since joining coach up in 2017 I have had the privilege to train with multiple athletes, over multiple skill levels, and hope to continue to be that outlet for athletes who feel they may need extra skill training outside of their regular practices to help build confidence.

I have been a private coach in the Portland area for over four years and love the opportunity it has brought to work with a wide range of athletes from different ages and skill levels. I am willing to work with younger age groups as well up to U18. I was positioned in midfield and defensive positions from outside to middle throughout college and have had exposure to forward positioning as well. NO KEEPER EXPERIENCE.

In a typical session, we will always begin with dynamic stretching as well as static stretching to insure the athlete is adequately warmed up. I will begin by taking the athlete through technical work in the beginning of the session, which from my experience as a child is the hardest to do on your own but crucial to improving technical skills. That will include juggling, first touch, cone work, headers, and basic moves. After the technical work is completed we would move into more combination play which includes incorporating previously completed cone work and moves into a bigger setting. For example we would have a offensive player work on 1v1 moving towards a shot on goal, or 1v1 for a defensive player (focusing on possession) and once they win the ball looking for that through balls or pass to their teammate.

There are also instances where we can work on defensive stance, which is crucial for every position on the field but varies depending on position. I break defensive skill into levels (body positioning, no stabbing, winning possession, ect.) that we continue to build on each session to finally expand to 1v1 offense and defense towards goal. We progress through this skill set dependent on the athletes skill level and ability to master this new technique since it can be one of the most difficult skills to master in soccer. In addition to defensive skill work comes attacking at full speed towards the goal or a defender to create opportunities for your team.

I like to listen and learn what my athletes want to work, pulling insight from what their coaches or parents have mentioned in passing. A typical session would end with whatever the athlete would specifically like to work on, followed with a cool down stretch. I am also available to implement and participate in conditioning components of the training session if the athlete and parents find this beneficial, as it will be a good workout for me as well.

Client Reviews

My daughter had her first training session with Madissen; she was awesome. Showed great knowledge base and skill, and related well to pre-teenage athlete.

Looking forward to more sessions.

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the session with Madissen . She tailor-made the session suiting her skill level by offering some advanced drills and she is looking forward to another training session with the coach .

My 10 year old daughter is working with Madissen. My daughter is a very shy kid, and Madissen made her feel very comfortable. My daughter opened up on her very first session. Madissen has been working with my daughter on her feet work. My daughter learned some drills she has never seen before, and she has played since she was four years old. I will keep my daughter working with Madissen as long as Madissen is willing to keep working with her.
Definitely a five star rating!!
