More About Coach Matthew

I’ve played all over the world at this point in my life, and from that I’ve experienced all the different types of coaching there is to offer. From these coaches and many things I’ve taught myself over the years from playing, watching the game, and coaching I’ve been able to help multiple kids already. I always like to stay positive with the kids to give them the confidence to perform week in and out and to help them truly love playing the game. Things I’ve done as a coach are:

- Highlands Ranch High School Head Varsity coach boys/girls
- Real Colorado u11-u18 girls (Head Coach)
- Legend High School Boys Varsity (Assistant) JV (Head)
- Lutheran High School Technical Director
- Colorado Storm Royal u14 boys (Assistant Coach)
- Private coaching with girls and boys, multiple age groups, and various levels

While growing up here in Colorado I played for Storm and Real for most of the time, was able to play in ODP and WCDA during that time. I was scouted by Arsenal and Manchester United while growing up and was able to travel out there on a couple different occasions. This helped me decide to turn down college scholarships, try to play all over the world. This has helped me grow more than I could possibly imagine as a player. To this point I have played in England, Uruguay, Italy, Spain, and Germany. Some of my accomplishments are:

- 2011 High school semifinals
- 2012 Colorado State Cup winner
- 2012 – 2014 Played with Stevenage, MK Dons, Leicester, Luton Town, A.C. Monza Brianza 1912, La Spezia Calcio, Virtus Entella, Viareggio, Athletico Valles Granollers, CF Badalona, Lealtad, Covadonga, Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa

I always get to know how the player plays and what they are looking for so I can then tailor my sessions toward improving what they really need. I always try to get the players to work as hard as possible for the whole session so it will be as enjoyable the entire time. An example of a traditional session that I would run is:

- Dynamic warm up (jogging and stretching)
- Technical Work (Brazilians, variations of juggling, and dribbling moves, controlling the ball properly)
- Passing (learning composure and what pass to hit and when)
- Dribbling (learning when is the appropriate time to dribble and what type of dribbling should be used)
- Fitness (sprints, ladder work, or longer running)
- Stretching/Abs

Client Reviews

Coach Matthew is AWESOME! Prompt, reliable and REALLY knows how to teach the finer points of the game. My daughter saw improvement after just 2 sessions. Thanks Coach Matthew!

He's great, motivates her and makes her work harder than she thinks she can. She has really improved!

Coach Matthew has been great! We had 2 sessions till date but can see his focussed approach and dedication to teach my kid the best techniques. Private lessons with Coach Matthew was the best choice I made for my kid, he is excited to go for every session and learn more.

Matthew is a great coach. He is very knowledgeable and you would learn a lot from him.

Matt has already made my daughter a more skilled player after one session. I have coached soccer for several years so I know what she needs at this age and she is getting it with Matt. She looks forward to working with him.

We were very impressed from the start. Coach Matt was professional and well prepared. I saw immediate improvement in my daughter's handling of the ball. Matt has a variety of drills so my daughter did not get bored and she was well-challenged. He focused on the areas that she wanted the most help with and it showed in her games! He gave constructive feedback at the end of the session so she knew what to work on. He is definitely an awesome coach and I would refer anyone to him.

Coach Matthew has been a gem and gentleman. Our daughter has shown improvements beyond what we could have expected in the short time he has worked with her. This was especially evident when other parents started commenting on her skills. Matthew is well knowledgeable, friendly and extremely patient - all qualities that are well suited for our daughter. She has even started to ask when her next sessions will be. A phenomenal start to a bright future.
