About this pro

We focus on developing players away from their time with us on the field. Whether that be through helping them reflect on games. Providing accountability for at home training. Or working with athletes to develop a personalized set of goals. 

Besides helping players away from the field sessions, we also focus on providing athletes skills they need in life. Responsibility, ownership and resiliency being among the top traits. 

I truly enjoy the work I do. Especially having worked with many students over several years. It's amazing seeing players who've trained with us since inception (even before 2018 when the business became official).

Seeing player growth on and off the field is everything to me.

    We love Tiempo Soccer Academy! My daughters skill level and confidence have grown in goal since working with her trainer Bruno. We saw improvement after just a few sessions! At Tiempo you will find talented trainers who care about the kids and are available whenever you need them. I highly recommend Fernando and his team for your soccer loving child who wants to take their game to the next level.

    His view on how soccer should be played and taught is amazing and has given my daughter so much confidence in and off the field

    Coach Fernando has been everything we’d hoped, and more. Our son’s skills have developed tremendously. But his ability to put those skills to use, his confidence during the games, his aggressiveness going after the ball, and his defensive skills have all improved even more. Coach’s way of interacting with the kids is tough but fair. He helps them find the maturity they need to bring out the best in themselves. And most importantly, he has helped our son find joy in the game, with no performance anxiety. Could not recommend more highly.

    Coach Fernando doesn’t just talk the talk. He genuinely cares about his players and their development. We are fortunate to have our child in the program and see her become more and more confident. Thank you Coach!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?
We have an assessment process for any new family interested in working with us.
 
During this process we take time to understand the child and their goals. We also use this process to assess the player's current level.
 
The assessment helps us understand how we can best help the athlete. And also gives the family an opportunity to make sure we're a great fit to work together before joining.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

US Soccer Licensed Coach

Over 7 years experience in club, academy, grassroots and private professional training programs.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing varies depending on the program. We have season by season programs or yearly programs.

We understand all player's are different and have different goals, which is way we have varying program levels.

The initial assessment process is a $75. If it's a fit on all sides, the deposit is counted towards the program registration.


How did you get started teaching?

Started teaching/coaching as volunteer for my local club. Over time developed into a full time career and business. 


What types of students have you worked with?
The main themes with our young athletes and their families are commitment, consistency and coachability.
 
We work with children aged 7+ who love the game, are eager to learn and serious about improving.
 
Skill and ability is secondary to the commitment level of the player and family.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone who is a fit for your child. Not every coach is going to be a fit for you and vice versa. In any case, make sure the coach takes a genuine interest and invests in your child's development. Not only as a player but as a person. Find the coach who will make YOUR child better.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Why do you want additional training? This is the biggest question children and parents should have an answer to. Once you know why you're training, it becomes easier to choose a program or coach that suits you and your child's needs.
