One of the top soccer coaching instructors in the world is passing on his knowledge to kids on the Central Coast.
Frans Hoek and his instructors are working with kids and coaches from the Central Coast Condors Soccer Club at Talley Fields this week. Hoek has coached some of the best and most-well known clubs in the world. He's spent time with the Dutch National Team, AJAX Amsterdam and FC Barcelona, where he worked with Lionel Messi.
Hoek says his goal is to help develop the next, or in his opinion, the first world famous American soccer player. "There's not basically one player out of the US that is world famous and I think that's strange. So it was triggering me my whole life already how could I really try to help contribute to the game that we really can develop the player," said Hoek.
His staff is all about teaching the Hoek method, a system of the best parts of European soccer that stresses technique and touch.
"We have mostly volunteer coaches, this experience is very unique and special," said Lauren Hongo, the Condors' Director of Coaching.
The five day camp ends Wednesday and is sponsored by the Condors and Cal Poly soccer.
