Coach Carlos Alberto Forero.

Carlos began coaching in the 1990’s with an under 11 boys team at the Chelsea pier in Manhattan, New York. In his first year with the team, the Arrows, he led them to first place from sixth and won a three-month indoor tournament. Following this win, the team joined the Weschester Youth Soccer League playing out of Manhattan Soccer Club. The team won their division two years in a row moving them up to division one. That same year the Arrows received the opportunity to participate in the ENY Premier League. For three years they were undefeated in this League. In addition, the Arrows played in the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League from 2001 to 2003. They made it to the final each year, where they won twice. They advanced to the finals of the state cup during these years. Finally in 2004, the team advanced to the Regionals followed by the Nationals where they placed third.
Throughout the years from ’02 -‘04, the Arrows joined the New York Freedoms Franchise and played in the Super Y-League National Championship. In 2002, they won the Nationals going undefeated beating the Cleveland Crunch 6 to 1 in the final. In 2003, the Arrows played again under the NY Freedoms name and placed third. Their final year playing in 2004, they played under the name of Red Storm Academy, where they made it to the final, but lost 2 to 1 in overtime. In addition to this exceptional record, the Arrows also participated in various tournaments including the Disney Showcase, Score at the Shore, Tampa Bay Sun Bowl, Wallkill Thunder College Showcase, Trumball CT and many elite indoor tournaments.
Carlos Forero’s comprehension of soccer is gleaned from his extensive international playing and winning teams experience. As a young boy he played for the B.W. Gottschee in the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League. For eight years this team won the championship. He then advanced his career and joined a team called the Nacional in the Pan-American (Spanish) League. During the years that he played on this team, they were always ranked in the top five. Following this team, Carlos traveled to South America, where he trained and learned with some of the best teams in the world. He trained with Danubio in Montevideo, Uruguay, a division two team. He was then given the opportunity to observe and learn from the professional team in Buenos Aires, Argentina, River Plate. Here he studied the different coaching techniques and the footskills program that he has had the chance to incorporate in America.
The knowledge that Carlos has brought back from South America has enabled him to lead his teams in the United States to many victories. His coaching style is truly unique and exhilarating. Not only has he learned from his own traveling experience, but he has also had the opportunity to coach with several amazing college coaches such as: Dave Masur, Head coach of St. John’s University, John Diffley, former U.S. national player, and Luis Fernando Herrera, who played on the Colombian National Team for three World Cups. These influential people have all aided Carlos with his personal success as a soccer coach.
His personal objective is to guide and teach players. He believes that the fundamentals and the techniques are the most important tools to learn this beautiful sport. Carlos has developed a footskills program, called Corner Kick Kickskills?, in which the main focus is on balance and control. He is able to do this with discipline, respect and dedication plus he understands how to be supportive and attentive in order to grow. As a coach, he evaluates every player to better understand where the focus should be customized.
Carlos is enthused to pass on and share his passion for the sport with young players. He thinks that everyone can always improve; by practicing everyday one can stretch their limits to become a better player as well as a better person.
