I have been coaching soccer for many years and my approach to soccer is from personal experience as I come from a family of professional soccer players and I myself played 1st A Division in South America. I believe in Skill Based Soccer and being Soccer Smart.
I believe that the difference between a player and the next one is what the player makes of his/her abilities, and with the right input, the player will develop to the fullest of his/her potential.
I always encourage my athletes to take part on pickup games on top of the practice I provide. The unstructured environment, in my opinion, is the most important aspect of the personal development, socially and for the game of soccer.
It has been my experience that this unstructured environment fosters the development of critical thinking, self regulation, coping skills, and creativity. It greatly improves their soccer skills beyond what any coach can teach.
I work with players of all ages, however I specially enjoy working with adolescent and teen players. This is the time in their life where they can greatly improve and ultimately will determine the kind of athlete he/she will become.

Played "Primera A" Division soccer in South America.
Clubs: Club Atletico Deportivo Independiente, CADI; Club Universidad Catolica Boliviana, CUCB.
School Teams:
1. Maristas, Champagnat - Peru
2. Anglo Americano - Bolivia
3. La Salle - Bolivia
4. Instituto Americano - Bolivia
5. Escola Municipal Minas Gerais - Brazil
Coached teams from U6 to Club Soccer in the USA and in South America

A typical session is divided in segments where we practice ball mastery, body control and game awareness. The technical aspect is always present in each segment. The tactical is introduce in parts, first, as a general context of the skill we are practicing, and second, as a real-game-scenario.

On my 1 on 1 Sessions:
I lead the player in the practice of a particular skill or set of skills that they need. Technical abilities are essential.
I will include repetition, definition, execution, combination and originality (Skill Based Soccer).
Depending on the ability and the development of each athlete, the general one on one session will include several of the following:Footwork Skills, Receiving and First Touch, Dribbling Moves, Fakes, Short and Long Passing, Heading, Positioning Off The Ball, Bending Passes, Shooting Techniques, Speed and Agility.

On my Small Group Sessions:
I teaching the fundamentals of a full sided game broken down into a fast paced small-sided environment, applying technique to tactical decisions and how to become an effective decision maker, movement off of the ball, advanced combination play (Soccer Smart) and defending as a small group. The group session are filled with drills that develop the technical ability of the individual in a group setting.

It is extremely important for the player to end the session with a sense of improvement and the desire to be better. I achieve this by ending the practice with a self assessment that includes a look at the players input and the outcome.

Client Reviews

We have had one session with Coach Pablo, and it was great. My son enjoyed the training session and is looking forward to the next one. I appreciated how Coach Pablo quickly identified how to encourage my son but also expect results during the training session, which is a big deal to me.

I wanted my 10 year old to keep up with soccer while we were in the Virginia Beach and Norfolk area on vacation. I came across coachup and coach Pablo through my search. I can assure you that Coach Pablo is an excellent coach and we were fortunate to have partnered with him. He was patient yet demanding with my daughter. He had lots of tips and pointers to help her game as well as some drills for her to practice on her own. He is very experienced in coaching and made the sessions both fun and effective for my daughter. We will use him again when we are in the area.

Coach Pablo is an incredible coach & I would highly recommend him to anyone considering private lessons for their soccer player. Our first session was an evaluation of my 13 year old son's current skill level. From there, Pablo has crafted a personalized plan to help my son take his game to the next level. We do 2 one hour sessions back to back & they often work on just 2 or 3 very specific things, doing it over & over until it's right. My son really likes this approach better than other private lessons he's had that have been more general, and I feel like the individualized training is a much better value than the drills he's done during lessons with other coaches.

Coach Pablo has also encouraged my son to play in pick up games on the weekend & has given us times/locations where games are regularly played. My son has throughly enjoyed playing in these games and looks forward to them, as well as his training time with Pablo, throughout the week.
My son feels like he is improving & I have definitely seen an increase in his confidence on the field during games. We will continue to work with Coach Pablo for as long as we are able!

Coach Pablo is so professional, knowledgeable, and just an overall awesome Coach! His experience and ability to draw the best from our son has been amazing. He takes the time to listen, watch and understand and then implements techniques that help hone in on your child’s natural abilities and talents. Finding the best approach for our son. Can’t say enough about Pablo. He is easy going yet when it comes time to work..You Work! My son says he does not mind working hard because Coach Pablo makes it almost fun!

Coach Pablo is an incredible man with a beautiful gift. He knows how to communicate big ideas in simple explanations and demonstrations. After just one session with my child, we felt as though we have known and worked with him the whole of our lives. His depth of knowledge of both the game and technical skills is of a caliber I've yet to experience in any coach. Coach Pablo is a miracle coach...his gentle approach with kids is so effective and his communication skills and masterful teaching yield amazing results. We are so thankful to have met Coach Pablo and I highly recommend him for any child of any skill level.

Coach Pablo is working with my 16 year old son and after 2 sessions I can already see a difference in his technique and confidence. It's apparent that Coach Pablo has worked with players of all ages. He can easily identify and communicate technical corrections for my son in a manner that is easily understood. He describes what the player should be doing with his feet and what he should be looking for during competition. If you're looking for a coach to help your player, I recommend booking a session with Coach Pablo.

Coach Pablo is excellent! It is obvious from his techniques that he has years of experiencing and teaching! My child enjoys and looks forward to his lessons with Coach Pablo.

Coach Pablo is a great coach, he help my son on his soccer techniques but mostly on his confidence, Thank you Coach Pablo.

Coach Pablo connected well with my son, helped him better understand his own strength and weaknesses and even arranged his schedule to watch my son play in a game. His final review and plan were very comprehensive and helpful.

My son started working with Coach Pablo recently and it has been a great experience. Pablo really took his time to evaluate my son's abilities and skills. Pablo is full of energy and joy - which is a pretty powerful combination that has really pulled my son out of his shell on the field. He gives correction in a caring manner and still gets results. He uses technology to help reinforce the skills he is teaching. Each session has been packed with activity and learning. My son has walked away from each session a more confident soccer player and young man. Pablo teaches more than soccer on and off the field.

Absolutely amazing and knowledgeable coach. It was such a pleasure to train with him. I highly recommend!
Coach Pablo sets goals for my daughter and makes sure each session ends in a good note. Coach Pablo never abandons a challenging skill; he continues the process until he gets the results that he is looking for. Coach Pablo took the time to develop a program that is tailored to the needs of my daughter, including opportunities for pickup games. This has been the best coaching experience for me and my daughter.
