"SUCCESS IS A STATE OF MIND. IF YOU WANT SUCCESS, START THINKING OF YOURSELF AS A SUCCESS."
My name is Ernesto Sanchez I have lived in Ventura County for the last 24 years. I’m
married with 2 children and I have coached them in the community from
recreational to now club level. I’m a Superintendent for Ports America, located in
Port Hueneme CA. I’m originally from Venezuela. I always followed this game. I love
the passion that this game brings to our life. I believe in Respect, Hard Work,
Dedication and Being Positive
My Philosophy in this sport is getting a group of kids to play together, as a team,
reach the ultimate potential of each individual, while having fun and learning the
game of soccer the right way using the fundamentals, without making it hard and
complicate it for everybody. Simple game it is fun and easy. I also believe in the
importance of all the kids to learn how to play each position, will make them
understand that every position is key in this game. And when the victories or losses
come, they are because it was a team effort not just an individual achievement.
I believe that soccer is more than a game. Is part of our lives and a team is more than
just a group of people formed by Parents, Players and Coaches. As a parent and as a
coached I want to teach the kids a lot more than just to play this game. I want to
work hard on the development, physical, mental, technical and tactical skills of each
individual. Also I want them to respect, enjoy it, and learn how to be successful in
and out of the field. In order for players/parents/coaches to grow they have to
understand that mistakes will be made and learning and recognizing them is a key
to the progression. At the end of the day everybody loves to be a part of this great
game of SOCCER.
