More About Coach Patrick

I have coached Soccer for over 15 years from my native England to East and West Coast USA. I have coached Premier level teams predominantly in the Pacific NW, where I was also a Technical Director for a Seattle club called Highline Premier FC before spending two years in California (2017-2019). I mostly work in the age ranges from 5-18yrs. I hold a FA Level 1 & Level 2 certificate from the UK as well as NSCAA Level 6 Diploma, National Diploma and Director of Coaching Diploma from USA.

Back in the UK I was part of the Crystal Palace FC youth academy for two years, I also played Semi-Professionally for local clubs such as Cray Wanderers FC and Ashford FC. I have played competitively in the U.S. but mainly for local municipal leagues. My biggest accomplishment has come through working on soccer commercials as a skills choreographer. Through this I have had the chance to work with some of Soccer's top professionals past and present. To name a few; Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Zinedine Zidane, Steven Gerard, Kaka and many more.

My sessions mainly consist of fast footwork coordination and individual ball familiarity. I'm a firm believer that no matter their position, a player must be comfortable with the ball at their feet. Alongside this, I work on striking techniques for long and short passing as well as shooting. Players need to understand the adjustment they need to make in their footing and technique when striking a soccer ball while it moves in certain directions i.e. away from the player (running with/chasing the ball), across the player and towards the player. I provide a range of skill moves to demonstrate and explore with the player to make them more of a threat in attacking 1v1 situations. When doing this, I help the player understand the purpose behind every move and how it gives them the upper hand against a defender rather than to just look fancy. I also explore this feature to help players become more understanding and aware as a defender. If they know what is going through the mind of an attacker, it will enhance their level in defensive 1v1 battles too.

Coach Patric is impressive. My daughter is very excited about his method of coaching. Teaching technique, strategy and proper movement , has yielded some positive results.. Emily is excited to take part and meeting her goals to improve her abilities, form and technical skill . Thank you coach Patrick

Victor and Emily

Patrick is wonderful with our son. He’s picking up so many soccer skills and ensures his practice is done in a developmentally, age appropriate way to keep him engaged.

Really impressed with the one on one time. After a great session, I feel like coach Patrick left my son with a few key concepts to think about and work on. Looking forward to further trainings in the near future.

Patrick is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to coaching all the technical pieces to soccer. My son loved working with him, and we could see noticeable differences in his skill set, influence in games and overall joy of playing the sport. Patrick has been a big part of helping our son's confidence grow both on and off the field. I would highly recommend him as a coach for long term development.
