More About Coach Thomas

I have worked as a Volunteer Assistant Coach for the past two seasons at Bowdoin College. I also have experience working as a coach and camp counselor at a variety of camps. In addition, I have worked with several players striving to reach the college level.

I have competed at the Division III level in the best conference in the country (NESCAC) for Bowdoin College. After joining the team as a walk-on, I ended my college career captaining the team as we won our first-ever NESCAC tournament championship. Upon graduating, I headed to Italy, where I played semi-professionally for a season before returning to the states.

After a thorough warmup, I take my athletes through several drills tailored to their weaknesses. This typically will improve ball-work with the weaker foot, by dribbling through cones, juggling with restrictions, and striking balls into a net. After this portion, we work on a specific topic, such as beating players on the dribble, or first touch. I finish each of my sessions with physical training specific to soccer. As a former college player, I recognize that coaches judge players based on their physical attributes first. Therefore, training the physique is essential to success.

Client Reviews

Tom is a great coach whom I greatly enjoyed working with. He is very knowledgeable and patient and I have learnt a ton from him already in the first session. Looking forward to my future classes with him. I would highly recommend Tom if your kids or yourselves want to improve soccer skills or even just try to enjoy soccer more.

Our son Diego has completed a handful of sessions with Coach Thomas and we´re really happy with how things are going. Thomas conducts training on well-kept and accessible fields, and has shown flexibility with respect to scheduling. He´s always on time and ready to go at start, and works closely with our son the entire time.

It´s obvious Thomas has education and experience in coaching, based on the detailed drill plans he goes through on the field, and analytical written feedback he provides after each session. He shows expertise not just in soccer technique, but general physiology and kinesiology as well. In addition to his professional coaching skills, he´s also got an innate affable personality that keeps our son motivated, and he brings an energy level that makes the hour of training really worth it!

We hope to continue to have Thomas work with our son as he develops his soccer skills and athleticism.

Tom is a terrific coach and positive mentor. He quickly identified my player's weakest areas, technically and physically, and developed a plan to address them. His sessions are challenging, fun and positive. As a parent, I also appreciate his professionalism and flexibility. He communicates well and his responsiveness is exemplary. We feel privileged to have found Tom through CoachUp and my player looks forward to working toward achieving playing goals under Tom's regular training.

Our daughter has been playing with a top club for 2 years and she wanted to augment her training with some private lessons. Coach Thomas (Tom) has been phenomenal with our our daughter. He is a natural teacher and was able to quickly assess different parts of her game that needs improving after a few drills, and impressively created different "games" to help her improve those different technical facets needing extra work.

Tom is very good with younger children; our daughter bonded quickly and really enjoys working with him. He has a combination of boundless energy, the ability to connect with children and has a great knowledge of the game. We feel lucky to have met Thomas and look forward to seeing our daughter's continued improvement utilized on the pitch.
