More About Coach Thomas

Over the past four years, I have coached at a variety of levels. My first coaching job consisted of working with a U9 recreational soccer team. I had a lot of fun teaching the game as well as creating a fun atmosphere that allowed the kids to grow to love the game. My second coaching opportunity was working at Maret School's summer camp with kids ranging from the ages of eight to fourteen. I was able to learn from a very experienced coach in Mohan Telfer, which in turn improved my coaching skills. I was also the head coach of the Wheeling Jesuit University men's club soccer team my senior year of college, which was a great experience. In the inaugural season, I was able to take the team to a 4-1-1 season, with our most satisfying result coming from a 1-1 tie with perennial power house Carnegie Mellon University. I was the head freshman soccer coach for the Georgetown Prep Freshman team as well as a JV and Varsity assistant. Currently, I am the varsity assistant for Fairfax High School's boys soccer team. I also have a USSF F soccer coaching license.

Over the course of my career, I have had multiple achievements. Prior to high school, I played for DC Stoddert Blue Lightning under Coach Evans Malyi. I was a captain on this team from eighth grade until my senior year of high school. For high school, I played at Gonzaga College High School where I made the honorable mention team for the WCAC. During my sophomore year of high school, I played for the Maryland State ODP 93' team, where I started at outside back as well as center back. I then went on to play D2 college soccer at Wheeling Jesuit University where I started my freshman, sophomore, and junior years until I was forced to redshirt my senior year due to an injury.

A typical session revolves around getting a proper warm up with plenty of stretching (this can be done before we start after the first session). I believe a player should be well rounded. As a result, we will discuss the tactics from each position's perspective. Fitness will play a large role. If a player is fit, then they can achieve all of their goals. Technically, I like to focus on working on a good touch/first touch, carrying the ball with speed, footwork, and improving the speed of decision making.

Client Reviews

Our 9 year old had his first session with Coach Thomas and pleaded to have more. We just did his 2nd session and our son is more motivated than we have ever seen him before.

Our son really enjoys his sessions with Coach Tom. He has great drills and games. Our son keeps asking when he can play with Coach Tom again.

Thomas did a great job with our 12 year-old son. He was begging for another lesson before we could even get off the field! And this in spite of the fact that his tongue was practically dragging the ground, they worked so hard. Highly recommend!

Session was well structured and enjoyable for the kids. Plenty to learn. Looking forward to the next ones.

My daughter has a great hour with Coach’s Thomas! He was really great with her and provided her with helpful ball handling hints. Looking forward to seeing him again soon.

He was great. Judah enjoyed the session and got some good guidance.

Coach Thomas has been amazing for the kids as they really connect with him which I think is the most important thing for young kids 8 and 10 years old. They are always so excited and can't wait for him to arrive.

He is also very open to whatever skills they want to work on. All in all he has been an excellent coach for our kids and it has made them more enthusiastic about soccer and we can actually see the progress come out in their competitive games.

He was very good!! Very patient with my son; he also has a variety of drills, which made the session fun and engaging for my son

Responsive, flexible and patient!

Excellent in every respect. Tom worked with my teenage son for a week and did an fantastic job teaching the basics, and instilling confidence. Tom knows how to prepare kids for their next step in youth or high school level soccer having done it all himself. My son greatly enjoyed training with Tom. Communicates well with people, organized and responsive. Strongly endorse.

We highly recommend Coach Thomas! He promptly communicates with parents, is flexible concerning scheduling, and most importantly, is fantastic with our son. Coach Thomas is extremely knowledgeable about the sport and is able to impart that knowledge in a manner that is easily understood by very young players. Thus, far our sessions have been fun/engaging. We look forward to seeing our son improve in the sport under the guidance of Coach Thomas.

Coach Thomas is an excellent communicator with a sense of humor who is helping my teenage daughter improve her soccer skills and fitness.

A person who has a strong passion for the game of soccer and is committed to bettering himself and his teammates.
