Quote: “I have played for and against coach Amaral. I can safely say I would rather be playing for him. He is an amazing coach but also a great mentor. Not many people get to play for such an amazing role model. Its easy to see that he finds the natural skills in people and can magnify them. Coach Amaral did this with me and has helped me achieved my goals. I’ve learned a lot from him and try to mimic his teaching techniques when teaching at camp.”

Quote: “Coach Amaral is like a father figure to me. We both came from Portugal at a young age and found success through soccer. He found me as a child playing in a low league and took me in and coached me to become the player I find my self to be today. It was a long road but I am pleased with how his methods and how they helped my style of soccer. I Love giving back and helping others that are like me, a new comer who loves the game of soccer.”
