Meet The Coaches

We are proud to have the best coaches in youth soccer.

Alex

Alex

Coach

Call me Coach Alex, from Lanham, Maryland. I like to power down watching my favorite show Dragon Ball Z and I power up with chicken and PBJ, not at the same time but they are both great. I am teaching soccer to your little ones but still got some learning to do studying Kinesiology and Human Development at University of Maryland College Park. The smiles on all the kids faces pushes me to inspire, motivate, encourage and be a supportive voice for them. My number one color is blue.
