Meet Our Leader

Jheison Macuace

Head Coach & Founder

Colombian Age International, Academia FC, Redlands United, Strikers FC, Lions FC

Macuace 1 on 1 began with the vision to improve the level of football of players within Australia.

We saw a lack of consistency and dedication to training and player development within clubs which showed on the overall performance of players and so we decided to fill this void by offering crucial technical training.

Coming from Colombia in South America where I grew up playing street soccer, my life has been revolved around football from the beginning and since then I have been learning, absorbing and experiencing everything I can about my life’s passion. I spent 9 years with a professional academy and then moved up to the first team, playing 100 games in the second division in Colombia and representing my country in under 16’s and 17’s with players like Juan Fernando Quintero and against players like Coutinho and Neymar. Here in Australia, I have played for Brisbane Strikers where I won player of the year and we won the NPL Competition, Redlands United where we won the premiership and Lions FC where we won the premiership back to back, and I was selected in the team of the year in 2018.

My Experience

All of my playing experience did not come without setbacks, I experienced many injuries that changed my perspective and pushed me to pursue other avenues. I felt like I wanted to give back to the game by combining all my experience and coaching knowledge to create a highly specialized program helping players to train more and improve their technical abilities, which I believe is the most important in the game.

I currently hold a C license, AFA licence from Argentina Federation and two certificates with Coerver coaching. My coaching experience started at Souths United where I spent 1 season as an assistant coach of the first team and as the head coach of the under 11’s team. The year after this in 2016 I started my program and since then I have been growing and working on my program where we have helped a lot of players to develop and move to the next level.
