Private Lessons



I am a Bolivian native, born with a soccer ball at my feet! As a coach I believe Futsal is a balance of technique, skill and having a calm approach to the game. My passion comes from the love and devotion I have for the sport. I strive to create a positive and safe environment for every class. I am available for all ages and skill level.

Focused 1 on 1 soccer or futsal training is a key component in succeeding on the field today. With this 1 on 1 training we will transform your weaknesses into strengths, increase your confidence/ speed of play and improve your skills. The session will be player specific, depending on ability and preferred position of play.
