After playing as a youth here in Jacksonville, Carlos Manuel started his soccer coaching career at the age of 19. He quickly grew through the coaching ranks and was coaching a Florida ODP State Team, teaching FYSA Coaching Courses, and becoming an Assistant Director of the Genesis Youth Soccer Club by his early twenties. Carlos furthered his coaching experience as the Academy Director at Space Coast United Soccer Club in Melbourne, FL, then becoming the Director of Coaching at Clay County Soccer Club. He moved to the NY/NJ area to continue his professional coaching development, working with the renowned New York Red Bulls (MLS) and their academy system as the Senior Coach for the prestigious Regional Development School (RDS). After moving back to NE Florida to be closer to family, Carlos helped establish the US Soccer Development Academy (DA) Program for the Jacksonville Armada (now JFC), where he would also lead the Pre-DA and Boys Youth Academy programs for three years. Recently, Carlos has been able to devote his time coaching with JFC's Girls Competitive Program.

Carlos possesses a US Soccer National "B" License and National Youth License, and United Soccer Coaches (formerly NSCAA) Director of Coaching and Goalkeeping Levels 1 & 2 Diplomas.

Carlos is truly excited about the opportunities to help build Coastal Kick's player and coach development system and bring his enthusiasm and expertise to all of its members and coaches. In addition to coaching teams, Carlos will serve as a Club Technical Director, where he will have a role developing Coastal Kicks players and coaches. He will also be available for small-group and private training.
