At age 15 I was contemplating quitting the sport and moving on. I felt stuck in my development, under-appreciated as a player and put to the side. Roberto was injected into our youth program and everything changed. Roberto helped me, and the team, see the game in a new light. I went from flirting with quitting the game altogether to developing into an elite youth player in the greater Vancouver area. Almost 15 years later I am a full time coach, played professionally, won numerous accolades at the NCAA Division I level in the United States; and I owe the greatest amount of my development to who I call “Doctor Roberto”. Roberto was the doctor that gave life to what was at the time a dead pursuit of a beautiful sport called soccer.
