Meet Our Founder

Coach Fernando started Tiempo to help youth players achieve their goals. His focus is on mentoring youth to reach their full potential on and off the field.

He started the program after years of coaching in various club and academy environments. He knew there was a gap in providing players with a program 100% focused on long-term development.

He started Tiempo because he wishes he had a program and mentor to guide his development when he was younger. Someone to teach him what he knows today.

Coach Fernando is one of the best soccer trainer and is excited to share his passion, knowledge, and experience with youth players who are eager to learn and improve. He is dedicated and invested in the individual success of all his players.

Tiempo Soccer Academy will provide the tools for you or your child to be a successful athlete, on and off the field. Our daughter has learned a great amount of skill that we have seen her apply during her matches. Aside from this, we have seen her pick up great habits at her team practices and as she develops/trains on her own. Coach Fernando and team have stressed the importance of good habits (self motivation and accountability) that will transcend beyond off the pitch. From a client perspective, you will be provided with valuable feedback and detailed information to help you make choices for yourself or child. A strong communication plan will lead to a successful relationship and Tiempo has done just that. We look forward to our daughter continuing to grow and GET BETTER!

My children have been have been participating in tiempo for about 6 months now. My daughter works with Coach Fernando and my son does goalkeeper training with Coach Bruno. It’s been wonderful to watch their skills and confidence grow, both on the field and off. Their interest, enthusiasm and commitment to the sport has grown as well. Coach Fernando and Coach Bruno are highly engaged and attentive, and do a good job communicating with us about how our children are developing. Overall, we are very satisfied with this program.

After only 7 or 8 weeks of training with Tiempo we’ve noticed a change in my daughter. I wasn’t sure if she was improving at first… but it was REALLY evident last weekend at a tournament with her club team. Her foot skills have seriously improved and she has much more confidence on the ball. We were so proud of her and what’s better, she was proud of herself too! Fernando has created a fun and competitive environment for the kids to use their creativity on the ball. After seeing the improvement first hand after such a short time, we’re excited for what’s to come! We are definitely here to get better.

My son is doing Futsal Fridays this winter and he loves it. He is gaining valuable skills while having a great time. My jaw almost hit the floor the other day when he was given an opportunity to go skiing and he turned it down because he would have had to miss his Friday soccer if he went. That is a true testament to the quality of the program Fernando has put together.

Tiempo has truly changed my U12 daughter's level of play. This change is of course with her skill but also I see a change in her mentally. She has more confidence and plays more aggressively. Fernando has a way of building up the players and showing them what they are capable of. I highly encourage anyone that is considering using Tiempo to give it a try!

Great coach that focuses on the player individual needs. Highly recommend if your child needs that second layer of training that’s not with his/her current club team.

Video Testimonials

“Players need a coach who can invest in and develop them on and off the field. Someone who can guide, mentor, and instill confidence in them. Many players are left behind or don't reach their full potential because they don't have someone helping them get there."
