Introduction: I have many years of experience with players from 5 yr to high schools, clubs, and colleges. I have a very high success rate and a ton of patience. My teaching techniques are tailored to each particular student. I am firm while laughing and having fun. I have many years of experience. I absolutely love what I do! Watching someone grow exponentially with his/her confidence soaring and anxious to implement the teachings we have worked on together gives me goose bumps. I get very excited for them because they are looking forward to life.

We did duel classes with my daughter 11 and my son 9. He listened to what I wanted the kids to focus on. Good drills and really works on their stamina. Kids get a good work out and learn good techniques. Coach knows how to talk to the kids and pushes them to give their best.

I am very fortunate to have found Ruben to train my 9 year old daughter in soccer. He's been excellent with age appropriate communication with her; he gets her motivated and he is fantastic at teaching the fundamentals of soccer and ball skills in order to build a strong foundation. He's energetic and has great expertise. This is my first experience with a private soccer trainer and I feel I made the right decision on behalf of my daughter and myself.

My son was a little picky about the type of training he was looking for. When he met coach Ruben and had his first training, he was very excited to have found someone that had the same love and passion for soccer as him. He has given my son great tips and the confidence he was lacking. Coach Ruben has given us helpful diet tips as well. He is punctual and knows what he is talking about, I definitely recommend him!

Soccer Lessons

Coach Ruben Araiza is the real deal. My daughter plays rec ball and really wanted to improve. We hired Ruben. In observing various practices, Ruben clearly understands the game on many different levels and is very skilled at teaching and coaching my daughter on the skills needs. He's the Soccer whisperer! He makes it fun and engaging and also teaches the philosophy of the game. One thing he recommended was a change in diet and had some supplement advice that was geared specifically to her. My daughter was motivated to start eating differently and the change is night and day. It's even carried over to her school work. Hire him. Give him a shot. You won't be disappointed!
