Rene has played and watched soccer for over 30 years. He was mostly self-taught and developed his own personal style of playing and coaching. His passion and love for the sport inspires him to encourage and support children and adolescents to do their best to improve their personal skills, ability to do team-work, and to always do their best and never give up. He truly believe that soccer is a tool to teach and learn some very important life-values, such as respect, compassion, self-discipline, dedication and determination. He likes to offer athletes an experience that will enhance their athletic/soccer abilities, and their personal growth in general.

The practices are designed for the different age groups and allows for players of different levels to work together and support each other growth. Also, practices start at the basic levels, but it can be expected that they will be adjusted to increase the level of play (for a single or multiple players, or the whole group) if necessary. Every player will be challenged at her/his own pace.
