My current coaching license is a National D License
My name is Alvaro Melgoza. I’ve been playing soccer for about 35 years and coaching for about fifteen years including, coaching with Central United Mexican League, Escondido High School, Escondido, Soccer Club, and Escondido FC Heat.
Winning many first place trophies with club teams and City Championships with Escondido High School, I enjoy being out on the soccer fields helping young boys and girls become better players and fall in love with this wonderful sport. But what I love most of all, is helping our young players become responsible, with character, and teaching them values for them to use in their own lives.
I have extensive experience coaching soccer. Having coached my two younger brothers, one of them played professional in Mexico and the other played for the Nomads and the Olympic Development Program. It was later when I discovered my real passion within, coaching young players and teaching them what it takes to be responsible, building on character and respect and above all just becoming a better person.
