Coaches & Staff

About Our Coaches

All Super Soccer Stars coaches share two passions: a passion for soccer and a passion for working with children. Within this framework, our coaches bring an eclectic mix of talents and backgrounds: collectively, they are artists, musicians, teachers, students, and more. Many come from the hotbeds of soccer -Brazil, Italy, Argentina-while others come from lands as exotic as…the Upper West Side. Such diversity allows each coach to bring a unique patience, energy, and creative flair to every class.
