MEET THE TEAM

DANIEL EGLY
Academy Director/Coach

Football in Hungary where I grew up was everywhere. I was selected early on to be a competitive swimmer, but football was there all along. We played in school, before and sometimes after swimming training. Once I finished my collegiate and professional swimming career football started to take over all my extra time and it quickly became clear that I have a unique way of connecting with all levels of players from professionals who strive for the same goals I did for close to 2 decades and with children just developing the love for and the fundamental techniques of the sport. this gift of mine has helped me to get the most out of each individual to become the best version of themselves.


Coaching Specialties

I love coaching the decision-making process for different positions, it’s an art to play with a tactical intention behind every small action and this is the art I aim to teach while instilling the love for the game, the desire to dare to be great,  in a positive environment that rewards the effort and the good attitude. Some of my specialties are technical fundamentals. Soccer-specific speed, agility, and strength training. Position-specific training. Competitive mindset training.
