Coaching Philosophy:

  • At a young age, the main focus should be on developing foot skills and good fundamental technique while having fun.
  • Player development is more important than winning at a young age. It is important to find the right level of play in which the team can be competitive in every game.
  • Academics are the most important aspect of a player’s life.  You may love soccer and want to play professionally, but you must prepare yourself for other aspects of life.
  • Players have to learn to play the game under pressure.  Composure on the ball and good first touch is important and must be taught and cultivated.
  • Maintain an atmosphere where the players are relaxed, enjoy playing, and do not fear making mistakes.  Emphasize learning from their mistakes and getting better each time they play.
  • Always look for new ways to more effectively teach all aspects of the game.

 

Coach Jorge BonillaMeet the Assistant Coach (USSF National ’E’ License):

 

Coach Jorge Bonilla has been volunteering his time to the game as a competitive coach for over 10 years and as player for over 30 years.  He graduated with an Accounting Degree in 1988 at Honduras University.  He is currently working as a Systems Analyst for Michael Baker Corporation.  His coaching philosophy and style is "Brazilian", a game of possession, because that is what he learned as a player.

 

He grew up playing Select Soccer for "El Salamar" (Division I) in the city of San Lorenzo Valle, Honduras.  At the age of 14 he was recruited to play in the reserve of “El Tiburon” (Professional National league) as a center midfielder.

 

"I am coaching because I love sports, especially soccer.  I would like this beautiful sport to become number one in the USA, and be an instrument to help others love the game of soccer.  I thank the coaches who sacrificed their time to teach me the beauty and skills of the game.  It is now my turn to give it back to others, and enjoy the game from a different position (the side line)."
