I grew up playing in the East Islip Soccer Club system from 1990-2003 on a high level team, which we were the Long Island Championship Finalists. I am also a member of the 2x wrestling league champions and a member of the 2x tennis league and division champions. I was a 9 time varsity athlete and a scholar athlete. After suffering various significant injuries I went to the coaching side of sports and have been successful there ever since.

Each session will be geared to the strengths and weaknesses of the player in collaboration of their personal goals, which will be planned in advance. Sessions can focus on ball mastery, technical work, position specific work, speed, agility, reaction and decision making. Sessions will be demanding and challenging, but also in a fun and enjoyable environment.

I am also a Mental Skills Consultant. The mental side of the game is typically undertrained in sports. These sessions can be geared to: goal-setting, imagery, relaxation, positive self-talk, performance routines, concentration, focus, fear, hesitation, emotional regulation and the mental side of injury rehabilitation. Homework will also be assigned each week in this area.

Sessions can be related to:
1. Strictly Soccer Skills
2. Strictly Mental Skills
3. Combination of both

Patrick is a great coach.

My daughter had such a good first session! She is looking forward to several more. She enjoyed being challenged and focusing on the technicals of the game in a very well-run training session.

Coach Patrick was very professional, well prepared and skilled and his training session was very engaging for my son.

Patrick referred me to Coach Kevin and it was a great experience. Kevin was so patient with Leo and it was so good to see my son have fun doing what he loves. Definitely scheduling more sessions!

Great session. Daughter received good feedback and worked on some things that rarely get covered in any kind of team session. Looking forward to working with coach Patrick again in the future.

From a parents perspective, Coach Patrick is punctual, engaging, thorough and easy going. My 8yr old who is 2 yrs into soccer wanted to train more than the 2 times per week her club schedules. I wanted to find a coach to compliment her current training while also getting her individual exposure that you won’t experience in a team setting. Patrick created instant rapport with my daughter and made the session fun and challenging. I think he is approach was perfect to nurture her development. Very easy to recommend Coach no matter what level your child is on.

Coach Patrick is a talented coach. All the sessions are well thought out and purposeful! They have a great time all the while he's developing their ball skills, team work and love of Soccer. Great coach!

Coach Patrick is superb. Just had our first private training session and my 10-year-old son is super happy. He learned more in one session than during the whole season worth of group practices at a local league. Patrick is very motivational, with the right level of high expectations, humor, patience, and great technical skills. So far, Patrick really stands out among several coaches we have had and we look forward to many more sessions with him.

Patrick orchestrated a terrific session with my 16 yo daughter, who plays at the NPL level and wants to raise her game even more. Prior to the excellent physical training, Patrick worked quietly with my daughter to crystallize her immediate and long term soccer goals on paper, thereby paving the way for a productive and goal-driven course of long-term training. That is a highly effective and impressive way to launch the program.

Coach Patrick worked with my daughter on her technical skills and he had an immediate impact both her confidence and consistency. He gave practical advice and used video to help her understand what changes should be made. My daughter felt very comfortable with Coach Patrick and is excited about booking another session.

We know Coach Patrick well as he has coached both of my boys during last year's travel soccer season. He is amazing with younger players and really pin-points areas to work on quickly. He is very technical and thorough. Each and every session my boys have had with him has been extremely beneficial in improving their skills. We highly recommend him for short or long-term training.

Coach Patrick is an exceptional coach combining both physical/technical skill and mental skill training. He took a very individualized approach with my son during his final year of high school. He worked on speed and agility combined with visual training to reduce reaction time. In addition, he took a sport psychology approach to help my son set goals and create plans to meet those goals. There were measurable improvements in my son's playing and confidence. My son will take all that he learned from Coach Patrick to the next level of play.

My son had his first session with Patrick and he really enjoyed it. Although my son has good technical skills, Patrick focuses both on refining his technical skills, and also on his mental skills. This is a great and differentiating combination as a large part of sports is mental. Also, Patrick is very detail oriented and makes the sessions fun and interesting. My son is looking forward to the next sessions!

Patrick has been great with my son in his first two sessions. He is always on time and well prepared, and the sessions are tailored specifically towards what my son wants or needs to work on. Patrick is very flexible and easy to communicate with, and he brings some unique methods of working with a player to the training. We look forward to working with him for the rest of the summer.

Coach Patrick was amazing. My son raved about how much he learned, but equally how much fun he had. The fact that Ethan left the session with a greater appetite for soccer serves as evidence of Coach Patrick's effectiveness as a coach. His unique techniques, patience and always going the extra mile for his students really stands out. High recommendation!

My daughter had her first session with coach Patrick today. He was wonderful, he arrived earlier than our appt time, and was great in pointing out her strengths and where she can improve. My daughter enjoyed her session, but more importantly learned a great deal.

Second summer my daughter trained with Coach Patrick to prepare for playing D2 college soccer. Coach Patrick was amazing his new advanced training covering ball work, skills, technique, fitness, as well as various shooting drills were all top notch. Very dedicated professional can't say enough about this trainer. My daughter was very impressed after every session, feeling confident for upcoming season. Would highly recommend Patrick he is exactly what a trainer should be.

I'm a former soccer player myself (quite a good one they say) and also coaches recreational soccer in my village. So you can believe me when I say Coach Patrick is great with kids! He is very dedicated and patient with my boys (10 and 7). He has a deep knowledge of soccer and a wide range of tested techniques which are very effective with my boys.
To see them always excited and looking forward to their weekly soccer training session is, for me, the best testament that coach Patrick has gotten it right!
I hope your kids get a chance to experience soccer with him like mine are.

My daughter had a great session with Coach Patrick. He was encouraging and communicates extremely well with her. She liked that he encourages her to try and tells her its ok to make mistakes. She had a great time and is looking forward to her next session.

My son finished his first session and was super happy. He said he wished Coach Patrick was his team coach. He liked that Coach asked him what he wanted to work on and he said it was "serious but fun too"!

Coach Patrick was so patient in working with my son. He was attentive, encouraging and made my son feel comfortable. He gave us some suggestions about which app to use for my son to practice his foot skills at home. We are looking forward to training with him again.

Patrick is a great find. He was on time (early even) and very professional, but warm. My son loved the session and is excited to do more training. Patrick gave us a lot of information on how Sean can practice on his own.

I feel like coach Patrick has a lot of knowledge and experience of the sport of soccer to offer us just from the 1 session my boys had with him we definitely are going to continue training with coach Patrick. Thank you for coach up for bringing us and coach Patrick together i feel like we need coach Patrick for my boys future in soccer. .i rate coach Patrick as a 10 .thank you.

Coach Patrick was awesome! He had a very nice variety of skills and drills he focused on with my son during the session. He kept my son's attention and engagement and provided very useful feedback with suggestions of things to work on.

Fantastic intro session. Covered a lot of ground to gauge where my son was on various fronts. Then he got to work. He connected very well with my 16 yr old.

Training went very well. We worked on agility, speed, technique, and other advanced areas of play. I enjoyed the practice and felt challenged throughout it.

Coach Patrick is a wonderful coach who helped my son with his weaker areas that needed more individualized focus. He was on time every day, and had before and after videos for us to see so we could see improvement after practice with a skill. I would recommend him.

Definitely enjoy training with Coach Patrick. He creates a good space for the athlete to feel comfortable and for the most part encourages the athlete to learn to be better through patience and not giving up. I for one would recommend him to anyone

Patrick is fantastic! He was quickly able to see the areas in which my son needs improvement and focused on those skills over the course of their sessions. Most importantly though, My son had a blast as Patrick works hard to mix up the drills and make them fun. I highly recommend Patrick for players of all ages and skill level!

Coach Patrick
Thank you so much
My boys worked very hard because of you teaching them and giving the tools that they need to be better soccer players

Coach Patrick was set up and ready to train when we arrived for my son's session. After a conversation with my son about goals and attitudes, the physical workout began. My son enjoyed the challenging drills, at all times being encouraged. Based on Coach Patrick's attitude and training style, he is ready to train again!

In three training sessions with Coach Patrick I have already seen a huge improvement in our nine-year-old twin girls. Patrick is addressing specific challenges they have with the ball, encouraging them to develop and use new tactics and correcting their form. He trains them together but works with them individually to ensure each is improving. Most importantly, my girls love the hour they spend training with Coach Patrick. They tell me it is fun and they feel good about their progress.

Wonderful , great, excellent

Coach Patrick is a dedicated professional, willing to go the extra mile in his sessions. He comes with a detailed plan that he is ready to adapt based on the session and its progress. He understand the game of soccer, but more importantly, he gets the athlete and how they think and react while playing. We recommend Coach Patrick...his work ethic and knowledge are helping my son reach his fullest potential!

I highly recommend Patrick. My 14 year old son had a great session with him as he worked to get in shape after an injury. Very comprehensive, and also extremely professional.

Coach Patrick was a great coach for my daughter. He already taught her so many new skills. She looks forward to working with him again!

Coach Patrick is definitely Top notch. I had him coach my 8 year-old son this Sunday for one session and just in one session I noticed my son felt more confident. He went on to win his afternoon travel soccer game 9-2! While this is obviously not coach Patrick's direct doing, I have to say that my son was more engaged in the game, which I believe is a direct result of the earlier coaching by coach Patrick. I'm definitely going to keep coach Patrick for the next foreseeable future and would recommend him for anyone looking for fun and instructive soccer coaching their kids.

Coach Pat is great! He has done so much to help improve my girls skills in such a short amount of time. Looking forward to my girls training with him some more.

Coach Patrick was great! He is highly skilled and easily related to my 12 year old daughter. I could easily tell that he will make a difference in her game and look forward to more sessions.

Very nice training session.

The training that Coach Patrick is providing my daughter has been very beneficial. He communicates extremely well with her and encourages her to asks questions. His way of breaking down each move has helped tremendously. We are looking forward to working with Coach Patrick each week. I would recommend Coach to all.

I was very pleased with Coach Patrick's training. The girls had an excellent session and are looking forward to the next. I would highly recommend Coach Pat to anyone that is looking for a trainer.

Coach Patrick was a great coach! He is kind, patient, knowledgeable and he makes the hard work fun. After just one session, I am eager for future sessions!

Our son has had the pleasure of working with Patrick for two seasons. The progression in his skills have been amazing when thinking back to Day 1. It is not only on the field. Off the field we have seen his attitude develop as well. Much of this has been from Patrick's positive influences.
Patrick is by far one of the most dedicated, thoughtful (in terms of feedback/direction) and patient coaches my son has worked with. He is positive and takes the time to really help the children improve on all levels. His positive impact on my son is immeasurable. Thank you, Coach Patrick.
Patrick has a deep understanding of soccer, particularly at the youth level. He has a unique understanding of children’s individual strengths and weaknesses which brings out the best in them. His ability to tailor a training regimen to cater to a child’s mental and physical needs helps them succeed and achieve top performance. The results with my children were visible after a season of playing for Patrick. They had increased confidence playing soccer and went up a level the following season and more importantly developed and heightened sense of organization and preparation off the field.
The soccer team can't thank you enough for your training sessions. Over the past two years, we have seen improvement in each of the players and their play as a team. The boys enjoy your training sessions and they get so much from your hands on approach and the emphasis on using their skills in the many small-sided games that you provide each week. As coaches, we have been pleased to see the boys develop greater technical skills and the confidence to use their new skills in their matches. The team is coming off their most successful season to date. This spring they were the undefeated champions of their LIJSL division. With your help, the team put forth a stingy defense that resulted in 4 shutouts and a balanced offense attack that scored 32 goals with 8 different players scoring at least one goal! Once again we appreciate all your efforts.
