About this pro

I am a grad student at Ohio University working on a Master’s Degree in the Coaching MCE program, the only one of its kind in the world. I finished a Masters in Education as well as a certificate class in mental toughness training with the US Olympic Committee education program. I am an expert team and individual coach. I am a soccer team improvement expert ,I will teach you how to become an effective and excellent soccer coach, and then you'll become the man , or woman who is the ultimate hero.
I have extensive experience coaching soccer teams at the college, high school, and middle school level, as well as travel teams both boys’ and girls’ U9-U16, select, tournament, adult amateur, and intramural teams. I have administered tournaments, camps, and promotional soccer demonstration programs. I have conducted and directed five-a-side, indoor and outdoor tournaments, futsal leagues, and indoor 3v3 leagues. In 1989, I attended by invitation the world-renowned international soccer academy, Ajax Soccer Academy, in the Netherlands. I was mentored there by Weil Coerver, an internationally recognized leader in youth soccer development.
As a sports educator, I’ve learned that there is no substitute for one on one mentorship. I have traveled internationally to be mentored by exceptional, world-class soccer players and coaches including national level and World Cup team coaches. I was coached by Gordon Banks of Manchester United in England. I trained as a coach at Ajax Youth Soccer Academy in the Netherlands. Among my mentors I include Hans Scharne and Bayern Munich at Beltsville Boys FC.
Mentored by several world-class coaches and players, I have, since 1981, directed Morningstar Soccer Academy which is modeled after Ajax Soccer Academy and the FFF (Federation of French Football Academies) in Leon, France. Morningstar Soccer Technical Development is systematically modeled after current Dutch, Brazilian, and German coaching techniques. I’ve also developed an original system of techniques and routines for juggling, finishing, shooting, dribbling, and passing. I align with European philosophies on soccer training that center individualized attention to players. This means that in addition to coaching tactical understanding of team-play, my program will emphasize intensive individualized work to teach technical mastery and control over the ball. “Individualized technically obsessive football education” develops precise and skillful players in addition to the developing the team. I specialize in finishing and scoring, training players within the framework of attack futbol. I have studied the science of scoring and goal-keeping and have developed a system for coaching individual technical skills such as juggling and passing.

  • Kurt

    Kurt (CoachUp client) Just completed three private and one group session with Jonathan and so far it's been great. He covers a lot in each session, but not in an overwhelming way. Just as importantly, he relates well to his pupils, including my son, who can be a challenge for others to relate to as he doesn't always keep an open mind about new people or new ideas. Jonathan's easy going demeanor is an asset as well.
