More About Coach Marco

Former sports director of a soccer club and the head coach of the U12 and U14 boy's teams, Boys Varsity head coach and the Girls Varsity head coach. I'm a certified and licensed coach with Cal south and the NSCAA. I have been coaching players ages 4 to 16 since 2000, adult teams since 2010 and camp and clinics coach for the LA Galaxy, Varsity High School coach for bout boys and Girls since 2015

I played in the 3rd division for pumas in Mexico city for 2 years then transferred to the 2nd division with U de G. Soon after, I twisted my ankle badly so I couldn't play for a while, then I came to the USA to tryout for the Zodiac Galaxy but no luck

My training is technique focused and depends on the skill of the student, no matter the age. First session is to know the level and the needs of the student so I can build a proper training plan for him or her.

Client Reviews

Marco was a truly thoughtful and thorough coach. He worked on fundamentals with our son and personalized the training to exactly what our son needed. He was patient and hard-working, and our son is already asking when he can see Coach Marco again for more training!! Highly recommend

Coach Marco demonstrates keen insight regarding approaches to improve core mechanics and capacities that maximize player potential. Beyond excellent.

We just had our initial session with Coach Marco, and I was so impressed with the fundamentals he taught my son. The entire hour was packed with truly insightful tips on improving all the fundamentals (juggling, drills, dribbles, sprinting, posture, etc.) down to the miniscule details. He was really keen on pointing out areas for improvement and deconstructing movements to incremental steps when my son struggled grasp certain concepts. I highly recommend Coach Marco; his raving reviews are well deserved.

Coach Marco has been a great coach. My son is 8 years old and he breaks things down in a way he can understand. He makes sure to correct mistakes and tells him how to fix it. He hasn't had many sessions with him yet, but we can already see an improvement.

Communicated well with my sons, was patient and gave them homework to practice what they covering in their session.

Coach Marco is a great coach. My son just started playing soccer and I appreciate how much he focused on the fundamentals and getting his mechanics right. After a few weeks of sessions I can see my sons improvement from the first lesson to the latest

Marco is an excellent coach and is very knowledgeable. The best part of the training is he concentrates on getting the basics right before trying to do more advanced stuff. My son really enjoyed the training session and learned what mistakes he has been doing till now. Would definitely recommend Marco for coaching.

We are thrilled with Coach Marco. He is skilled and did a really great job with our son. After one session, he has already gained more skills and confidence. We look forward to our continued work with Coach Marco!

My daughter is a newbie to the sport of soccer. With Coach Marco’s guidance she is building confidence and skills she’ll need to try out for her high school team. She felt content over her first session and looks forward to booking a few more sessions. Highly recommend coach Marco. We will continue working with him!

My child really enjoys training with Coach Davila. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. He is detail oriented, even down to form and placement of foot, and seems to really enjoy what he does. Thank you.

Coach Marco was great! He showed my son a few basics of soccer and gave him homework to work on. My son came home and has been outside practicing since we got home. He really enjoyed the session. Thank you!

Great start with coach Marco. In a one hour session, he identified things that my daughter needed to work on. He has valuable experience and a calm demeanor while challenging my daughter (in a good way). I was pleased for our intro session and will be booking him more regularly.

He is good, we had our first practice last week and have another one scheduled today. Bought a package of 10, looking good so far.


My daughter loves him and his teaching technique.

Coach Marco is one of the best private coach we have experienced. My daughter is a confident flight 1 GU14 player and there are still so much to improve with coach Marco. She likes his session and rated him as her best coach.

Coach Marco is a well dedicated and hard working coach. "Full Respect", My daughter had her first training session with him and she is more determined and motivated to continue with his sessions. He was spot on with areas that will help her succeed. Me and my daughter would definitely recommend Coach Marco to all our family and friends.

My son really enjoyed his first season with Coach Marco. He can't wait for his next season. Thank's Coach

Seen an improvement in my son's striking skills. I HIGHLY recommend coach Marco!

Excellent coach

I am quite grateful for the opportunity of having coach Marco work with my daughter in just these few sessions. My daughter plays with AYSO for almost 3 years now and haven’t really learned nor taught the basics of proper kicking a ball, the right form, techniques, etc. With coach Marco he’s been able to identify these important techniques needed to be a good player. He’s able to relate and address my daughter’s difficulty in a kind approach , with firmness and good communication. Hence I will continue additional (10) sessions. Thank you coach!

Coach Marco was GREAT! My daughter already asked for another session with him !

Marco is great! Real professional and knows lots of techniques about soccer. Looking forward to meeting him next time soon!

Very helpful with the technical things that some trainers don't see. My daughter really enjoyed her session and we are looking forward to our next one . Thanks again coach

Coach Marco knows his stuff. I recommend

Couch Marco was great

Coach Marco gives that energy to kids and motivation to make them build there confidence. With one session that I booked for my son I can see him getting that confidence. Well definitely be booking more days with coach Marcos.

Coach Marco was excellent! He took his time and explained everything to our son and us. Will be setting up some additional sessions!

He is a great coach and my son really learned a lot in just one lesson. We have the 5 lesson plan and are looking forward to my son's improvement and development.

Coach Marco was very patient and gave great direction on technique and ball control. It was refreshing to see him correct our daughter on proper form and remind her that speed will always be there but accuracy and great technique will get you farther in the game. We are looking forward to more sessions with Coach Marco.

After three sessions, I can see my daughters confidence and skills rise. My daughter loves the training and enjoys playing soccer even more now.

This was our first session with Coach Marco but my son really enjoyed their session and is excited to return next week. Marco was very professional, well organized and genuinely cared about what he was doing. We are looking forward to working with him.

Coach Marco has been extremely professional and knowledgeable. He knew right away what our son needed to work on. We are very happy to work with him.


He’s wonderful with our son!

Great with My 10 year old.

Coach Marco was organized, timely, accommodating, and very knowledgeable. He helped my son identify his bad habits and his focus on technique helped correct them. Highly recommended!

We had a trial session with Marco. He was amazing and connected well with our child. We highly recommend him.

Connects great with the kids & pushes them for results

My son has had 2 productive sessions with Coach Marco and am satisfied so far. I feel confident he can help improve my son’s soccer skills. Coach Marco is always ready to start training when we arrive. He has very good knowledge of training soccer. I am happy to have him as my son’s trainer.

We are extremely happy with Coach Marco. He is very knowledgeable about the sport, is able to quickly determine the skill level of the athletes, and easily established a comfortable rapport with the kids. He comes prepared, assigns homework, and interacts with the kids in a calm, compassionate, and effective way. My kids LOVE their lessons, are always excited to get there, are happily active for the whole hour, and are motivated to practice throughout the week between lessons.

After one session my daughter has learned skills that she has been taught in team training. I am very impressed.

Coach Marco is great! My daughter is learning techniques that she hasn't learned before. It's also nice that Coach Marco assigns homework that requires her to practice on her techniques at home!

Thank you Coach!

My 8yr old daughter (playing for 4yrs) has only had 3 sessions with Marco so far and the little things he is pointing out for improvement is mindblowing. He makes it fun and keeps them doing the drills till they get it. Marco is very detailed with what his drills and explains the thought process in a game situation

Coach Marco has helped my daughter Reyna improve her soccer game. She has better foot skills and can kick much farther. Thank you for your great coaching!

I was very happy to see how professional Marco is. He was on time and had everything set up when we arrived. My son really enjoyed his first session and we are excited to keep working with Marco.

Coach Marco was awesome with my son. He really took his time in helping my son improve his skills and also took the time to go over with my son what he needs to work on. My son really enjoyed his session.

Coach Marco is an awesome soccer player but more than that is a great teacher. He is really friendly and super patient. So happy to have found Coach Marco!!

Patient, supportive and explains very well

Coach Marco was great with my 8yr old son! He asked what he needed to work on and did exactly that. After his session he took the time to explain to us his potential, what he needed to work on and other suggestions. Most importantly my son said he really liked him and had fun even though he was tired 😀

Very good and helpful!

Keen, attention to detail, from first observation there was things he corrected ASAP. Gave my Son good advice from the beginning and was patient with Him. Started with the basics and then moved on to more advanced drills while keeping my Son interacted and focused, which is one thing me as a parent have a hard time doing when we train. I am happy and so was my Son, so we scheduled 5 more sessions with him.

My son loves Soccor but wasn't very good. I decided to put him in private lessons. We found Marco through coach up and he is doing great. Marco is an excellent teacher who has patience and is also great with kids. I am definitely signing him up for my sessions!! Thank you Marco

really good

Coach Marco was patient with my daughter, she is applying the learned skills into her soccer games and everyone can tell the difference, thanks coach.

Great demeanor and very knowledgeable.

Coach Marco is a GREAT coach. After just a few sessions I feel that my son has learned several new things and more importantly is highly motivated to learn and perform for himself. He said he feels way more confident now and excited to keep learning more. Highly recommend coach Marco!!

We have been through two sessions so far with Coach Marco and I must say I am very impressed. He makes it fun while giving immediate feedback and corrections.
I highly recommend Coach Marco.

Coach Marco has been a really great help my my son Enzo. He has been patient with him and has brought his skill level up greatly. Enzo is now more excited than ever to play soccer.

I booked Marco for my daughter who is 11 and looking to improve her soccer skills. He is very positive, comes prepared and is on time every session. I just rebooked him for more sessions and referred him to a friend of mine. He excels at footwork, balance, agility and coordination.
