Coach Leo Matos
I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1986. I am the brother of two young sisters, Larissa and Jamile. During my time there, I attended Senac Rio University and graduated with a degree in Environmental Sciences and Management. I recently moved to Southern California with my wife of four and half years. We just celebrated the birth of our first child, Ayla, this September 8th, 2015. I am very happy and excited to start this new chapter in our lives.
Soccer is in my blood! My love for soccer began while playing the sport as a child in the streets of Rio de Janeiro. One aspect of the game, which I value greatly, is teamwork. I stress the importance of teamwork on the field and make efforts to help make connections off the field. I believe teaching teamwork will help kids learn the importance of working and growing together towards a common goal on and off the field.Back to Meet The Team
