A typical session is broken down into various categories. They usually consist of the following techniques or drills- warm-up, footwork skills and technique (ball control, dribbling), 1 on 1, passing, shooting, moves and scrimmaging. I am hands-on with the demonstration and repetition of each drill.

Client Reviews

Coach Mani showed the boys what it takes to build their skills in soccer. My 7 year old said “if we do this for a year we will be very good”

My son enjoyed his session with Santos. Looking forward to the next session

Coach Mani is a great coach. Worked with my son (15 yrs. old) on technical skills, shooting, and was very helpful.

Great first session with coach mani looking forward to continue developing my son skills with the drills and practice coach mani will helping us out with!

Coach Mani was a great find and was able to accurately asses our 9 year old sons strengths and skills that need more work.
His rich experience, professionalism & coaching skills are hard to find and we will surely be signing up for training on a regular basis.

Coach Mani has a number of practical drills that helped my son improve his soccer skills. Coach Mani made sure that the fundamental soccer skills were addressed, but also focused on some other specific focus areas based on our request to create well balanced training sessions. Coach Mani was very flexible in scheduling the sessions at locations convenient to us.

Thank you to Coach Mani for his knowledge, experience on training soccer and flexibility with schedule, I booked 5 sessions for my nephew with Coach Mani, and definitely he learned different moves with the ball, things that he haven’t practice with his travel team, and personal classes are much better because on this case Mani told us what My Nephew needs to develop and keep practicing, Thank you Mani 😎

Coach Mani has an amazing soccer resume. His in-person coaching matches his on-paper experience. My favorite thing about coach Mani was that, in addition to teaching skills and creativity, his drills addressed conditioning in a fun way. My son, who never gets tired, was exhausted after the session. Coach Mani subscribe to the philosophy of less talking and more doing - which really works.

The soccer training is the best in the world. Soccer is a way of life for these Brazilian coaches and there are none better anywhere. My son not only improved his soccer skills substantially, he learned more from his friendships with the coaches and players than he could have. Through the training regimen, he also learned a good deal about himself.
I wanted to thank you for the role you played in organizing the Predators. I know it had to be hard to respond to all of the various requests, suggestions, likes, and dislikes of so many parents and kids. You were always so helpful and responsive. Sam had a great experience.Thanks again and see you on the sidelines this fall.
My soccer skills, especially my moves and ball control, improved so much as a result of my training, that I felt like a completely changed player when I returned.
My sons' individual and team soccer skills greatly improved.
My soccer skills, especially my moves and ball control, improved so much as a result of my training at Zico, that I felt like a completely changed player when I returned.
I cannot imagine a better way to help a team or player move to the next level in soccer. The training and bonding that occurred no doubt helped our team move to the first division where they now are. My son literally cannot wait to return this coming summer.
Training with the Brazilians improved me as a player, and playing against them improved our team. I had a really good time when we weren't playing, too.
