New Trailblazer

Coach Vazquez believes in creating winners on more than just the pitch.
“I see coaching as something that is really two-fold. I want to help my boys improve in every aspect of soccer as I can technically and tactically, but I also want them to know that there is so much more that sport can teach you. I want to show them that sport has the power to teach us about some powerful things such as: leadership, communication, resilience, and patience to name a few. I want them to become better soccer players during their time with me but more importantly, I want to set them up for success in the future and help them to become truly amazing people.”
