Macuace 1 on 1 Football Training began with the vision to improve the level of football of players within Australia.
I have been involved in football all my life and it is my number one passion. I’m from Colombia where football is the biggest sport. I started playing 18 years ago and did all my junior years in the second division in a professional Colombian club called Academia FC.
I was selected for the Colombian national youth team in under 15 and under 17 where I played 10 international games against players like Coutinho and Neymar.
During this time I was also helping with the juniors’ development at Brisbane Strikers and doing 1 on 1 training sessions in my own time.
At the end of 2015 I had a knee injury so I decided to focus more time on coaching.
I took on the role of coach for the under 11’s at Souths United and assistant coach for capital 1 senior team (we were promoted to BPL).
I have also been involved in Brisbane’s Football Barcelona Academy for the past 2 years gaining great experience.
In 2016, I started my own business Macuace 1on1 Football Training, coaching players of all ages one on one and in small groups.
I have been helping young players in every aspect of the game depending on age and position on the field and I am passionate about developing football in Australia.
From my experience I have seen that Australian players already have the athleticism, so we are trying to introduce creativity, awareness, skills and game understanding.
