More About Coach Marcelo

I was born in Brazil and always have played soccer. I played college and Pro in Brazil and living and coaching in USA for more than 10 years.
In 2003 after my graduation at University Federal de Vicosa, I moved to the USA to search for a better life and opportunities.
I have been a USSF Referee and Coach since 2005.
I really like private coaching; I feel it is very valuable to the client who enjoys and learns much more than if he/she was in a group. The coach has time to explain technique in greater detail and is not distracted from others players. The attention is always focused on the client.
I have been training athletes for the last 15 years.
I have trained people from all ages and backgrounds. Some really top Physical level and goals and others just average ambitions.
My goal is to provide the expertise so the client can take matter into his own hands and learn how get in shape and consequently more health.
I want to mix light weight Gym train with outdoor or indoor high intensity workout.

Client Reviews

Coach Marcelo was great!
Very knowledgeable and my son had a lot of fun!
We will be booking more sessions to keep improving.

Coach Marcelo did an amazing job with my 8 year old daughter. She felt super comfortable and really liked the challenge.

Great, positive coach. Enjoyed our training session!

Coach Marcelo is fantastic! He coached my son and daughter on their fundamentals and has made a huge improvement in just one session. They thoroughly enjoyed their session, and are excited to return! He worked with each child at their own level and at their own pace and still kept the session moving. I am hugely impressed with Coach Marcelo and will certainly sign up for more sessions!

We were visiting family during vacation in Vancouver, Washington, and wanted to have some training during our trip for our two boys (ages 14 & 12). Our eldest plays at the ECNL level and our younger at the State league level, so we were looking for intense one-on-one sessions at an affordable rate. With Coach Marcelo, we got both! Coach Marcelo runs his practices with a high level of intensity focusing on the whole player, both offensively and defensively. While our boys mainly play a defensive role, they do get the opportunity to be in an offensive position. Since the focus of being a well-rounded player, diverse in one's playing skills was emphasized during training, this will benefit them down the road and was refreshing to see coming from a trainer. A final attribute about his training sessions, is that Coach Marcelo continually took stretching breaks throughout the sessions instructing the boys on the importance of whole body training while focusing on the technical aspect of the game. My wife and I would highly recommend Coach Marcelo to anyone looking to take their game to the next level.

Coach Marcelo is great! I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my coaching sessions with him. He is clearly a very skilled and experienced soccer player. He has taught me several tricks/fakes to enhance my skills and has been encouraging throughout the whole process. No matter how experienced of a player you are, there is always room for improvement and Coach Marcelo can help take you to the next level.

Our son had a good session with Coach Marcelo. He seems to know a lot about everything. We liked that he could tell our son could do more fitness workouts, and because of that, did not push a complete 90-minute session.

Coach Marcelo is great, my son said he gets lots of knowledge from the training with coach Marcelo, he can improve his daily practice. Great experience!

Our first session with Marcelo was great! My son enjoyed going over technical aspects and getting insights that he definitely wasn’t getting just playing on a team. Very happy with Marcelo and our sessions.

Marcelo was great to work with. My kids really enjoyed his session and learned a lot.

Coach Marcelo ran a solid training session, packed with many touches. It was really helpful to have feedback on technique and learn new ball skills. Will book more sessions with Coach Marcelo to improve my game.

My son (15) has had two sessions so far and has really enjoyed working with Marcelo. He has been encouraging and motivating and seems to have covered a lot that has been just right for my son. He’s been challenged and happy with the progress he has made already. We will definitely be continuing.

I have had two sessions with Marcelo and I have already seen improvement and have gained more confidence. He maps out his sessions to where we are productively working on different skills throughout the entire lesson with plenty of time to stretch and drink water. I am excited to continue working with him and grow my game.

Coach Marcelo and my daughter had their first session last week. Although my daughter was very tired after the session, Marcelo really pushed and challenged her physically and mentally, which she really needs going into club spring season. I am going to schedule more sessions, and I certainly would recommend him for your kids.

Good technique and knowledge of the game

(no details provided)

Coach Marcelo was excellent. It was obvious that he was very knowledgeable about the techniques he was training and broke them down and explained them clearly. He kept the sessions fun and active and seemed to know exactly how hard to push my son so that he was challenged, but not too hard to burn him out. I would highly recommend Marcelo!

Coach marcelo was great my son enjoy the training and also learned a lot it was helpful and fun

My son had a great 1st session with Marcelo. His training style made it fun while learning important skills and how to use those skills effectively. We're looking forward to the next training sessions with Marcelo.

Top notch training! Marcelo is super Friendly and good communication skills with my players, he knows how to push your limit to overcome your best abilities. Definitely hiring him again for my team! Thank you!

Enjoyed working with Marcelo!
He quickly identified areas of improvement in my son’s game and worked with him to get there. His sessions are intense but fun, keeping my 8 year old engaged at all times. What I liked the most is that he has a thorough approach: individual technique, strength/ endurance and , most important, putting it all together into a vision of the game. Highly recommended

He arrived on time to the session, was very professional, and knowledgeable. He combined endurance training with ball technique, this included psychology of the game with team dynamics. It was an amazing experience! Highly recommended!

Marcelo was great with my so Gabriel. Hitting a lot of different skills and pushing him to be better! Definitely will continue to have him as his coach!

Marcelo knew with confidence how to connect with our son. A very positive experience. Marcelo is a true soccer ambassador! Lisa in Portland, OR.

My son (15) really enjoyed his first lesson with Coach Marcelo. He felt Coach quickly identified areas for him to work on and ran through some useful exercises and drills that would help him improve. Unfortunately, he's had a couple of injuries so he's had to hold off on doing more but once he's back to normal he wants to pick back up with Coach.

Marcelo did a great job with my daughter. I look forward to seeing her progress and development.

Coach Marcelo was a fantastic coach! My 12yr old son really enjoyed his first session with him. He was not only a great soccer player, but was very kind, enthusiastic, patient, and fun coach! My son learned a lot in one session, and he can’t wait for his next session with Coach Marcelo. I highly recommend him to any players who are eager to be better at his/her soccer skills. Thanks for the great session, Coach Marcelo!

Great coach for our 9 year old daughter - he’s very patient and encouraging!

My son has learned a great deal from the sessions. Marcello is very great at identifying areas of needing improvement. I plan on continuing having my son work with Marcelo.

Coach Marcelo has true passion for the sport and brings that passion to his coaching. He brought new perspective to my game, assessed my skills, and tailored our sessions to meet my goals as a player. He pushed me, never letting me get away with less. I appreciate working with Coach Marcelo and look forward to our training sessions. I would highly recommend him in the journey to build your game.

Coach Marcelo helped my son (15) identify his weaknesses and he was encouraged in a positive way to work on how to improve. He interacted professionally and with encouragement. My son is looking forward to his next session!

Marcelo is very knowledgeable and passionate about the game. He challenges you and provides the positive and constructive feedback during every drill. Overall, Marcelo is a great coach who only wants his players to get better. I definitely recommend him.

Coach Marcelo is an amazing Coach. He offers lots of drills throughout the session (helps keep the 1 1/2 hour session fun). He is super positive and offers lots of encouragement. I would recommend Coach Marcelo to anyone that is looking to sharpen their soccer skills.

We had our first session with coach Marcelo, and I found it to be very useful for my 14 year old son. Coach Marcelo is very kind and polite, and he connected well with my son, assessing his existing skills, and focusing on areas of improvement including dribbling, ball control, amongst others. We decided to book more sessions, and I believe my son will benefit greatly from these sessions. Thanks coach Marcelo!

We sought out private soccer lessons for our 7 year old, who has been playing rec since he was 18 months old. I can say that without a doubt, he has learned more about the fundamentals of dribbling, passing, and shooting in just a few sessions with Coach Marcelo than in any other period. His coaching style is clear and consistent in terms of what he wants the player to learn, but he also keeps it fun, which is equally as important to us.

I would be happy to be a reference if you have questions.

Coach Marcelo was great with my 3 boys!
Great techniques and motivation for the boys. Look forward to seeing him again!

After 1st training session, my son has already learned some new techniques and look forward to next session. I'd recommend Coach Marcelo to anyone.

Coach Marcelo has been an incredible resource for my son, who is 10. My son came to Coach Marcelo with some bad habits but with a desire to improve. In just 4 weeks, I have seen my son embrace the coach's instruction and work toward breaking those habits. I'm signing him up for more sessions because my son sees the benefit and has connected more with his joy of soccer due to of Coach Marcelo's positive coaching techniques.

Marcelo helps you develop all skills, and is great for any skill level.

My 14 year old soccer player is really enjoying these classes and learning a lot. My son picked up soccer a little later and is in need in more focused attention to his play and technique and general fitness. Coach Marcelo knows what he is doing and my son has tons of respect for him as a coach and soccer player. It seems like a great fit for us where we really want to help my son get to the next level which was harder to get in his group couching and rec or futsal playing experience. Looking forward to more sessions with Marcello on turf and on grass! As a parent I found Marcelo very communicative and reliable with a lot of goodwill and experience to share with my son. Cannot say good enough things about this experience. well worth the $$.

Our experience with Coach Marcelo has been great, he is currently working with my 7 yr old son who has only played rec ball up to this point but with Marcelo's help I can see more competitive soccer in his future. Coach Marcelo has worked on all parts of his game and introduced a lot of great drills and skill building techniques. Rain or shine Marcelo is out there with him which I really appreciate. Marcelo has great communication and is always prompt, I would recommend him to anyone looking for great coaching!

Coach is amazing!!! He worked very closely with my daughter on technique and 2 days later she used everything she learned and played her best game ever and scored goals!! Thanks coach we look forward to the next session!!!

We just met Coach Marcelo and he was amazing with our 10-year old club soccer player. He explains things well, demonstrates techniques and pushes our son in a positive way. He is an excellent Coach and we highly recommend him.

Marcelo has been working with my son for a few weeks now. His confidence and ball handling skills have improved drastically can we look forward to more sessions

Marcelo is helping my HS daughter learn how to be a forward and play the field more successfullyafter she spent years as a GK. he is patient with her during this challenging transition. His feedback is very direct as well as positive. After 2 sessions she is handling the ball better. Thank you Marcelo!

Coach Marcelo was a great coach. After the first training session, my son learned the proper techniques in controlling the ball. Coach Marcelo gave my son the confidence that he can improve his game. Most importantly , the Coach was patient and was detailed in explaining what he wanted in the training. My son enjoyed listening and learning what the coach had to say. Coach Marcelo is one of the best coach. If you want to improve your game, I would recommend Coach Marcelo.

I had good experience with Coach Marcelo. I haven't had private coaching before, so I didn't know what to expect, but he took me through some good exercises and pointed out helpful tips along the way. My favorite part of the session was doing one-on-one work at the end, where I got to see impressive technical ability from Marcelo, get pointers on my own moves, and learn some new ones from him.
In the end I really got what I was hoping for, which was an "ah-ha!" moment where he pointed a critical flaw in my approach to one-on-one's that I would never have been able to notice myself that really opened up my ability. I've been able to apply these tips to my games and really benefited from it so far. I'll definitely be doing more sessions when I can.

My daughter really enjoyed the training session and is clearly learning new skills! Thanks!

Coach Marcelo was very friendly and patient with my daughter. He took extra time to figure out her skill level and goals so that moving forward she can have a plan designed just for her. We would highly recommend Coach Marcelo to anyone looking for private lessons.

Coach Marcelo worked well with my daughter. He is very technical on how to do the skills the right way and also very positive with my daughter to correct her bad habits. Our first training session went great and look forward to working with him more.

Coach Marcelo did a great job with getting my son going on practicing after he had an extended break. We needed a quick refresher to try out for club soccer and I am happy to report my son made the team. Coach Marcelo was patient and showed him some drills he could practice at home. It was a great experience.

I liked Marcelo attitude toward helping me. I enjoyed my training session and learned a lot.

Once a mother told me her son was much more confident to play the game. I felt very happy with it. Thank you.
