The HPM Technical Coaches

Fernando Victor deSouza

Head Coach Fernando (Brazil) is an enigma of football skill and coaching acumen, with over a decade of expert coaching behind him and a unique flair that delivers passion and performance to every session. An expert at the small game and a beach soccer master, his skill and knowledge is matched by his ability to inspire, motivate and instruct junior players with tactile drills, intelligent gameplay and advanced techniques. Fernando brings with him years of teaching experience, a uniquely Brazilian flair and qualifications in the Brazilian school system. Fernando has made Nerang and the AFA his new soccer home since arriving in Australia and has already proven himself as a brilliant coach.

Koki Miyasaka

Assistant Coach Koki (Japan) is one of the Nerang Eagles' 2019 Premier League rising stars, with one of the fastest and most potent attacking styles of football we've ever witnessed. Formerly playing at the renowned Ryukei Kashiwa FC in the Ibaraki Prefecture near Tokyo, and also at Aoyama Gakuin University, Koki is no stranger to the pressures of large crowds and big games, having playing in front of thousands of fans in finals football. Recently landing in Australia, Koki has already made a significant impact at Nerang with his explosive pace and mature game awareness, and is keen to impart his experience, passion and energy onto our young Eagles players.

HPM PROGRAM AIMS

The HPM Pathways Program is a bridging program that is designed to not only advance each participant’s football skills and abilities, but open up pathways for young players to explore their potential and aim towards the more advanced Academy of Football Australia youth development training programs for U12s and up.

The program is designed to work within the constraints of the various age levels and physical abilities of developing youth players while slowly immersing them into a professional training environment.

Drills, activities, exercises and game play will push players to excel whilst also providing a safe, inclusive and supportive experience that builds confidence. This is NOT the SAP program, instead providing developing young players with cutting edge, proven and unique training mechanisms only found at the Academy of Football Australia and HPM program.

HPM players are built on respect, confidence and effort, and take on the Academy of Football Australia motto – Aspire, Focus, Achieve 

Some of the areas covered in the training sessions will include:

Individual Ball Skills & Technical Refinement
Spacial Awareness & Movement Off The Ball
Communication
Agility, Speed & Power
Stretching & Injury Prevention
Game Strategy
