Congratulations to Matrix Elite Coach Hector Romo for completion of the Coerver Coaching Youth Diploma Level 2 course. The course took place the weekend of May 14-15. Among other topics, Coach Romo learned about developing cognitive thinking in players, fostering individual and small group skills needed for a successful BOX / TRAP team, The Growth Mindset and pursuit of excellence through study and hard work that all Coerver students (and South Bay players, for that matter) should have. Coach Romo (photo, at right, with AYSO Pacific Soccer Club Director of Coaching Grant Heywood) is South Bay Matrix Director of Coaching, Girls Program. He is also head coach of South Bay’s Matrix Elite 2003 girls team. The team will compete this fall in the San Diego Development Academy.
Coerver Coaching is a football skills teaching method suited for all ages but especially for players aged 5-16 years old of all abilities and their parents, coaches and teachers. It is a method that focuses on individual skills development and small group play.
