Coach Tommy is an incredible coach! He is patient and instantly connected with my seven year old. He makes practice fun, enticing and is always positive. Coach Tommy knows exactly how to explain drills and techniques in a way that is engaging for young learners. I highly recommend Coach Tommy!

Coach Tommy was great with our three kiddos. He’s professional, patient and experienced. My kids looked forward to every session with him.

Coach Tommy and my 11 yr old son had two great sessions. My son just started playing goalie this season and coach Tommy provided excellent goalie coaching. He instantly connected with my son, and in just two sessions he gave my son a huge boost in confidence and skill. We saw immediate results with my son's technique and awareness of strategy. Coach Tommy also provided several drills and exercises that my son loves to do at home to increase his ability. Thanks Coach Tommy! We strongly recommend him as a goalie coach and as a youth coach.

Coach Tommy was easy to get a hold of and coordinate a meeting through Coach Up. He asked the right questions about our 11 year old and we both felt it was going to be a good fit. Coach Tommy was very approachable and knowledgeable. He is professional and we highly recommend him.

Coach Tommy is the best. He can somehow wrangle our group of toddlers and get them to follow instruction for 45 min. We are very lucky to have found him. Thank you Coach Tommy!

Coach Tommy has been an excellent coach for my son and his cohort ages 4-6. He is impressively able to engage this group of young kids, cultivating their athletic skills while also building their confidence. I have a great respect for his teaching style and philosophy on how to build interest, resiliency, and ultimately competitiveness. I highly recommend him.
Coach Tommy is my favorite soccer coach. He always sets up really fun practice drills to teach us specific soccer skills. So we get to have fun while we’re learning. Player, age 10, 2010 Boys San Francisco Norcal Player, Coached by Tommy for 3 years Coach Tommy is an amazing coach that truly understands grassroots age soccer development. He teaches all the foundational elements of the game, but makes the skills work extremely engaging, so the kids never want practice to end! We love seeing our kids so happy and proud of their own soccer progression. Tommy also has an amazing command of practices – the kids listen and follow his every word – it’s impressive to watch! SF Soccer Parent of two elementary school age boys, coached by Tommy for 3 years I think Tommy is a very good coach. He helps me learn lots of skills for soccer. He makes everything fun because he turns a drill into a game and games are fun! Player, age 8, Coached by Tommy for 1.5 years
Coach Tommy has been an incredibly positive influence on my son. At this point my son has had numerous coaches and Coach Tommy is by far his favorite. There was a point where my son felt a bit disheartened by soccer and after he had some private sessions with Tommy, he came back home telling me he fell in love with soccer again and wanted to continue playing. His coaching style works for my son and I have other friends who I referred Coach Tommy to and they all sing his praises. He knows how to direct the kids, teach them about soccer, and supportively motivates them. Tommy has played at a professional level and has vast experience as a coach. He knows what he is talking about and he has lived the path that many kids have dreamed of. I highly recommend Tommy. My son and I are super grateful for him.
I've known Tommy Alioto since 1978, we've been teammates and he has coached me at both the amateur and professional level. His positive approach to developing youth players in Grassroots Programs has been successful for every club he has ever helped, he knows what works and what doesn't work. When you combine passion with knowledge, and dedication with a dash of fun, you have Coach Tommy. If I could pick one person to start a new youth club or be in charge of all youth soccer in this country, it would be this guy. There's really good people and then there's Tommy Alioto. He's the best.
