“Es had a profound impact on my college soccer career, and played a significant role in helping me reach the professional level. She encouraged me to focus on improving my technical game and generously dedicated her time as I worked towards my goals. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive coach, mentor, or friend. She is awesome!"

"Working with Esmeralda over the past few years has drastically improved my technical abilities and confidence on the ball. Her training is in a group setting yet feels individualized for what I need to improve on! Her wealth of soccer experience domestically and internationally makes her an excellent source for training for any position."

"Taylor is so excited to be playing ECNL. I can't say enough about what your training has done for her confidence and her game. My wife and I can't thank you enough. It's been so much fun to watch her improve and develop into such a technical player."

“Esmeralda Negron was the most creative and dynamic player I had the opportunity to coach over my 25-year career at the university level. Coupled with her enthusiasm and fervor for the game, she will be able to help develop players to reach their individual soccer goals. She has played professionally, coached at both the youth and college levels and her passion is unmatched. She has traveled as both a coach and player, spending time observing Chelsea, PSG, and Real Madrid…and played professionally for clubs in Germany and France. I couldn’t think of anyone better as a coach and person to both challenge and create fantastic environments for youth players”

2004 National Coach of the year, All-American


"Training with Esmeralda has helped my technical game as well as my fitness and speed. The small group setting allows her to focus on our individual needs as well as help us gain a competitive fire, by playing small fast-paced games. When training with her I can tell how passionate she is about the game and how much she loves sharing her never-ending knowledge."

"Our daughter, a U15 EDP player, has worked with Esmeralda off and on for the past 2 years and Esmeralda has really changed our daughter’s soccer game.  Esmerelda’s positive coaching and ability to quickly identify areas for growth have enabled our daughter to be a more precise and bold player.  As her skills have grown, so has her confidence."
