About this pro
How does your service stand out?
EASA puts a great deal of emphasis on tactics, even at a young age. Most Academy's strictly focus on the technical, such as, how to dribble, how to pass. At EASA we also emphasize how to PLAY soccer, or what to do when you get the ball, how to effectively defend an attacker, and so on. Thus, youth players learn Game Intelligence and not just how to kick a ball.
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
Interacting, educating and providing youth players with a rewarding and positive soccer experience is one of the most fulfilling occupations for a high-level trainer/coach.
Dean Moraitis is a solid trainer/coach with a strong orientation to tactical formations on the field. His teams understand how to keep proper shape: diamonds and triangles, as well as how to execute the first defender rule and the defensive shift. What makes Dean especially effective is the way in which he uses emotion and his personality to get the best from his players at game time.

I was fortunate enough to play for Dean Moraits for four years as a varsity soccer player at Oceanside High School. Dean established himself as one of the elite coaches in Nassau County by winning county championships and developing numerous players that went on the have very successful collegiate careers.
Dean possesses all of the qualities that a student athlete looks for in a coach. Dean Moraitis always had high expectations for his athletes both on the field and in the classroom. He instilled a work ethic in his players that allowed them to meet success in their future endeavors. Dean Moraitis has the ability to build a rapport with every player on his team, and knows how to maximize each player's potential.
Dean's extensive knowledge of the game of soccer is evident as he carefully plans formations and strategies based on his players' abilities. As a former Division I College Soccer Player at Manhattan College, I have been fortunate enough to play for some highly qualified coaches. Dean Moraitis is one of the best coaches at analyzing what is occurring in the game and then making the necessary changes to his team.
Dean Moriatis has had a profound impact on my life. Dean was instrumental in me pursuing soccer at the collegiate level. I currently coach modified girls soccer, Junior Varsity wrestling, and Junior Varsity girls lacrosse at Oceanside High School, and I use many of the coaching strategies that Dean uses in my everyday coaching.
