Alex Rico


As a coach for over 27 years, it has been my passion to instill the fundamentals and love of the game to every player that I coach.  My primary focus is to teach both technical and tactical aspects of the game while incorporating fun.  This philosophy translates to well-developed, confident players starting at the younger ages.  My daughter played club for 13 years and that experience allows me to understand the game from a coaching and parent perspective.  My favorite player, aside from my daughter, is Diego Armando Maradona.  My favorite professional team is Manchester United.
