Coach Armando Maini served as a youth coach for the Soccer Club of Oceanside’s recreational and competitive programs for the last six years.
He became a member of the Breakers Professional Coaching Staff this season, and enjoyed instant success. Coaching the Boys Under 11 Blue team, Armando ran spirited practices sessions, having fun with his players while challenging them, and enjoyed success on the field as well.
“Growing up and playing in Italy, Coach Armando had a considerable amount of knowledge and experience to offer, and he offered it all. He developed a reputation as a passionate coach who loved the game of soccer, and poured that love into his players… His players loved Coach Armando back. He LOVED the game of soccer and he cared so deeply about his players.“
Frank Zimmerman(Director of Coaching)
