Georges Ba

International PRO and Spirited Coach

Georges attributes much of his career success and skills to the coaching, training and discipline afforded him by his French and European soccer coaches. Georges brings an unrivaled passion, joy and enthusiasm to coaching youth soccer, empowering and inspiring excellence in young players every day. Certified in CPR, AED and First Aid, he is currently licensed by the French Football Federation to coach at the youth team level, a designation equivalent to the UEFA License B Coaching Certification.

To date, Coach Ba has coached young people for as long as he played in Pro soccer leagues. He exhibits a patience and attention to detail that creates winning attitudes and exceptional players, proving himself time and again in games, through the soccer academy and in international tournament tours as more than a coach, but as a mentor, counselor and trusted guide. Coach Ba joyfully guides players to exceed their personal and team goals with purpose, education, sportsmanship, cultural awareness and focus as much as technical soccer skills and physical development.

Coach Ba is truly inspired by his players, the young people with raw talent and technique, as they develop the skills, confidence and discipline to succeed not just at soccer but in any endeavor they choose. To play and perform like a pro, you have to train and think like a pro. Coach Ba offers the entire package, training the bodies and the minds of his players to achieve excellence both on and off the pitch.
