More About Coach Mekdem

I'm an E-licensed coach with the U.S. Soccer Federation, and have been coaching consistently since 2017. I've coached boys and girls of all ages, though primarily ages 11-14 thus far. In addition to private sessions, I was Boys Head Soccer Coach at Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. High School for 3 seasons.

I started playing soccer in 1999. I've gone through prestigious youth programs such as the Olympic Development Program and a U.S.S.F Development Academy. While in college, I also played 2 seasons with the Cal Poly Men’s Soccer Club, consistently one of the top Collegiate Clubs in the Country.

As a coach, my goal is to develop a player's skills while nurturing his/her passion and excitement for the game in a safe and fun environment.
The first session will be focused on getting to know each other and assessing the player’s strengths and weaknesses. This way, we can tailor each following session to the age and skill of the player and focus on developing any weak areas, while still bolstering their strengths.
Each session will be designed based first and foremost on the player’s own goals. With 1-on-1 training, I believe targeted technical training is the most effective use of the time. However, my hope is that every player will leave each session having improved in some way, whether technically, tactically, physically, or mentally, and proud of their progress and of the work they put in.
I will regularly introduce new, engaging drills to keep the sessions exciting and focused, and get the most out of every hour. I’m very open to feedback, so I ask that players and parents please tell me what works best for them in our sessions.

Client Reviews

Thoughtful, helpful, kind. Took the time to evaluate skills and then come up with a program that will lead to real improvements.

Coach Mekdem is easy to work with, always timely and clear communication. We especially like the after-session feedback that give us idea how the player is or is not making progress, what the player should focus on next.

Coach Mekdem was excellent with my son Blake. Very professional and kind, also flexible in scheduling sessions with quick responses. Coach Mekdem was knowledgeable & patient in assessing Blakes strengths & weakness during his 1st session, which we all agreed on. Blake is looking forward on working with Coach Mekdem to strengthen his skills. Would highly recommend Coach Mekdem to Blakes club soccer teammates & others!

Coach Mek is great. He works well with my son and is easy to communicate with. I love how he's out there doing drills with my son and actually teaching and showing him how to do the proper techniques. I will definitely be going back to Coach Mek for additional trainings.

Excellent and knowledgeable! We are very excited for our son to work with Mekdem.

Mekdem coached my 8 yr. old and was great. He knows many different drills and games to keep him engaged. He was very knowledgeable and patient with my son. We are very pleased and would use him again.

Mekdem was great. He had valuable drills and skills to coach my son. He was easy to communicate with and schedule. I would highly recommend him!

Mekdem was amazing! My 12 year old son came home super excited about the training. He enjoyed the the detail instructions and the personal advise and motivation. My son stated "I liked his conversation and how he showed me to use my left foot in certain situations."

Coach Mekdem is great! He's already identified areas my daughter needs to improve and she is amenable to his coaching.

Coach Mek was great!
My son was more interested in other sports before his session, after his session he wouldn’t put the soccer ball down.
Coach Mek was able to connect with him in a way that sparked something in my son.
We’ve already scheduled more training sessions.
Thank you.

Coach Mekdem was great and helped my daughter understand some things better and showed her the things she could work on. My daughter is one who its hard for her to connect with someone she doesn't know at all and she was comfortable and learned from him. I would recommend him if you have one like mine or any kind.

Coach Mek took his time with my son Jesse. We are looking forward to book him closer to the summer. It is good to know there is a great coach that can connect with a 7 year old. Patience and dedication are key. Thanks coach!

My daughter is having a blast with Coach Mekdem. She looks forward to each session and doesn't want her training with Coach Mekdem to end. He gives her the perfect combination of encouragement and suggestions for improvement. He was able to quickly identify areas of improvement and is giving her plenty of drills that she can do on her own to continue to improve. He also gives incredibly detailed feedback which helps her prepare for future sessions. She is excited to use what she has learned in game settings. We highly recommend Coach Mekdem.

Coach Mekdem was great. Lucas was smiling after his session and felt that he learned a lot. He seems to play with a stronger feel and confidence and wants to learn more. Coach Mekdem has a great understanding and teaching style for the player and the game. We whole heartedly recommend him.

He was attentive and understanding.My kids have little experience and where difficult to deal with that particular day.He was very patient .He even spent some time after the session with us .I wish I could hire him as my all the time coach.

Coach Mekdem is very prompt in responding to messages. My son was apprehensive the first session but afterwards said he enjoyed working with Mekdem and that he was really helping him improve. We have been very happy with his training expertise.

Coack Mekdem is an excellent teacher. My eight year old daughter really enjoys training with him. He is patient yet challenges young athletes while keeping them engaged. I highly reccomend Coach Mekdem!
