More About Coach Manuel

I am a soccer coach and play soccer because of my passion for the sport. I believe a person will seldom if ever out-perform their self-image. Therefore my goal is to create a positive environment that allows athletes to achieve their highest self-actualization.

Simply put we will build high self-esteem in your role as an athlete. We do that by accepting the player for just who they are. That is the baseline and from there we build on the strength of your potential and work to improve on areas that each of us knows that we are not as strong in.

With that said, it does not come easy; you know that because you are looking to improve your capabilities as a player. You already know that your maximum effort is required in training to enhance your game time performance. My guarantee to you is that I will encourage you to achieve your upmost potential as a soccer player and athlete.

I have coached in recreational leagues, competitive leagues, and currently coach a high school team.

I will help any player of any age and level, but I especially enjoy the challenge of coaching high school players or players at the collegiate level, because with them I can make the biggest difference in their game. I mostly work with individuals. If you have a group of players that want to work on a certain aspect of the game, I will work with groups up to six at a time.

My sessions are based on fundamental principles I learned from my own private coach, and incorporate the drills I found most helpful as a player and a coach. Soccer is a game of attacking, transitioning, and defending - each player must know their role in each phase.

I want my athlete to feel an immediate, concrete improvement in his or her game before the end of each session.

I started playing soccer at the age of ten. I have played and coached at several different levels. Currently playing in adult indoor and outdoor teams.

A typical training session will include;

Dynamic stretching and warm up

Technical skill drills

Tactical awareness discussions/drawing it up on the board

Action Photos

Client Reviews

Excellent coach and teacher! Understands the game and the kids he teaches. We are lucky to be able to work with him!

Coach Manuel did an excellent job training my daughter. My daughter is a member of the Thorns Academy and just needed some extra technical assistance. He was patient and was able to teach her a lot. After training, my daughter felt more confident and capable. I would highly recommend Coach Manuel!

Coach Martinez was my favorite coach I have had the honor of playing for. He pushed our team and always believed in us. He always expressed his passion for the game and his desire for us to reach our highest potential. He was an inspiration and was always someone who was there for us on and off the field and I think a lot of girls really appreciated that support system. It was a great opportunity to work hard under his name and to play the game in a way that we all loved
