Julio trained both my son and daughter in their early years and I can say that without him they would not be playing where they are today if it were not for him. And I believe my daughter would not be playing at all. Julio coached my daughter and she made it to the provincial qualifiers in Ontario as an individual player. He taught more than just soccer but to have dreams and believe in yourself and it is because of this that is determined more than ever to requalify for the Provincial team and move toward the National team. My son has been scouted by European clubs and he too has Julio to thank for this, when he first started training with Julio he was a B player in an entry level league and not very fit, he now loves the sport and is a starter on his team that competes at the highest level in the province.
Julio is amazing with the kids. He is caring, understanding and patient with their needs, but also encourages them to achieve. His love for the game shows. My daughter loves Julio practices and misses him when she can’t go. That says a lot. As a parent, I appreciate Julio and admire his ability to connect with my child. He also has found assistants who have a mutual love and dedication for children and the game. This academy is a 10/10 in my book.
Doesn’t get any better than training with Julio!
