Coach Stanley Saintil

I have had love for soccer since I was little boy. Growing up in Haiti, even though we did not have much, soccer always kept me happy. I started playing because my parents love to watch the Brazilian national team play.

I am passionate about sports in general. I love seeing kids improve on their motor skills. My love for sports is the reason that I am studying physical education at Queens College.

What makes me happy is seeing young kids loving soccer with the same passion that I had at a young age.  I started playing competitive soccer for Bryan Piccolo, a middle school in Queens, New York. I captained my high school soccer team from 2005 -2009. The high School coach saw the passion, commitment, and leadership skills that I had back then, and I want to offer the same skills my students. In 2014-15, I assisted my high school coach to a third round I have played for the Cosmos in 2012-13. As of now, I am playing with a semi pro team called Forest Fc.

Interesting fact: I was top scorer for my high school (scored 23 goals).  I can walk while juggling the ball for 20 min. I love Arsenal, and my favorite player is Luiz Nazario Ronaldo.
