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.

Parent Reviews

“I like to thank your coaches for the great time my daughter Vanessa had. They are great with kids and the lessons were challenging and never boring. Coaches are funny too. I am looking forward to start again next season!" Mrs. Johnson
"The way our coach interacted with the children was excellent. It was great to see the kids play with the soccer balls for most of the class. They did not do that at the other soccer program we had tried. Thank you so much.” C. Feinberg
