The "Summer of Ball Mastery" Series is designed to provide players the foundation to gain more comfort & confidence when taking on defenders one-v-one. This is built through technical repetition, proper timing, & effective outcomes of the techniques (the "moves") that will be covered. The training will also provide opportunities for players to learn & find success because of how the sessions are structured. Above all, a greater sense of respect, sportsmanship, work ethic, & developing a love for the game are emphasized throughout each session. Players will receive a post-session email detailing the general learning outcomes of the session so they are able to continue training on their own.

With the Addition of Wurn Park to Coastal Kicks Soccer we wanted to address some questions we have been getting.
Will all team training be moved to Wurn Park for 2024-2025 season?
No, teams will still train at Brookview Elem. Park and Huffman Park. All teams use the beach & futsal training and other fields while also rotating training at Wurn Park. Wurn Park will be used primarily as a game site.
What days and times will teams train for next year?
Until teams are formed and rosters completed training schedules for next fall can not be determined. Teams will train twice a week either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday with a third day a supplemental training offered. Teams train 90 minutes with start times of  5:30pm, 6:00pm or 6:30pm. U8 Dev Team typically starts training sessions at 5:15pm.


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.
