Marcelo coached my daughter in a Super Y summer program for the Washington Spirit. His ability to take a group of girls who had not played together and in a short amount of time develop them into a top-notch, winning team was remarkable. He provided a hands-on approach, was patient, knowledgeable about the game of soccer and worked to improve their skills and overall reading of the positions. My daughter's love of the game grew under his coaching and to this day she feels an affection towards him because he made each and every player feel they were important to the team.

During the many years of attesting to his excellent service and professionalism. I can only say my experience has been great, not only because of his invaluable knowledge regarding soccer, but for the expertise he provides on and off the field. Thank you.

I have known Marcelo for over 15 years. I have had the privilege to share the soccer field with him playing pickup soccer and also coaching youth teams against him throughout this time. He brings not only a great understanding of the game but also an enthusiasm that never fades. He has a love for the game and always has a smile on his face, this energy is passed on to the kids he coaches and is contagious to all around him. I would highly recommend his services to anyone wanting to improve their game. Greig Warwick

Coach Marcelo coached my Daughter for Super Y. He was great making sure she would be challenged at every practice while improving her technical and tactical abilities. That training was reflected on her game. Great coach!
