Bio
Enthusiastically, creatively, and sensitively but firmly assist players to find life-lasting fun, artistry, camaraderie, and excellent play: physical, mental and emotional fitness through focused and fun challenging games and disciplined work on techniques and tactics. Help players think and create for themselves—to not be robots of the coach. Model play on top South American, African, European play, including focus on artistry, feints, control, possession or direct tactics, disciplined defense, and celebration. Open to evaluation, patience, growth, continued professional training. Values fun rather than win by excessive anger, long ball, recruiting, boring drills, and conditioning.
