About this pro

My approach is to keep a very complicated game simple and fun for folks who want to learn and grow in the sport. 

I can relate to all age groups and excel at developing younger kids to help them achieve their goals. 

Watching students progress from learning the basics is still the most rewarding. 

Soccer has been a part of my life for 38 years, I still play competitively, and my goal is to inspire the same passion in others.

    Jay is amazing and works very well with kids of all ages. Knowledgeable and patient with good athletic skills too. Both of my young boys benefited from his coaching techniques. I would recommend Jay to anyone.

    Jay was very patient when working with me. He was always positive and kept me focused on what the current lesson was. He was able to show me a number of issues with my swing and we worked to correct them quickly. Will use him again.
