Why me? 

Simply because I coach through playing and life experiences! 

My playing and coaching experiences have taught me great lessons that I want to pass along to those I coach! It is more than a game. If I do not coach you to see life lessons through the sessions, I will have failed you.  

 

MY STORY

Passion for Soccer

I have been a student of the game, both as a player and a coach, here in America and abroad. I was raised in Kenya where I fell in love with football/soccer at the age of five. I ate, slept, and dreamt football 24/7. As a player, I had the privilege of playing at various levels, and it is through these experiences that led me to become a coach. The one thing all players dread happened to me. In my case, it was a kidney injury after colliding with a goalkeeper. The most important part about the whole injury was I scored!  While the injury changed my playing path, it certainly didn’t change my passion for and involvement in the game. As a coach, I have been fortunate and blessed with the opportunities to coach in different places and levels.

I believe in excellence and professionalism. I want to help players realize their potential, make huge strides, reach the next part of their desired soccer career, improve their confidence, and take them through a training that helps them understand what it takes to be at the next level.

I train all my players with respect and dignity regardless of their gender, race, culture background/ethnicity, and their economic status. Over the years, I have learned that the game came easy to me because of those I interacted with. It is important for me to train my players and teach them to take not only the technical and tactical lessons from the sessions, but more importantly, the life lessons to sustain them for the rest of their lives. I hope that long after you are done playing or training with me, you will remember important things that meant so much to you and shaped you into the person you want to be.
