Coach Mario Martinez is entering his second full season as a Titans FC Coach! Mario brings a lot of passion and energy to his games and trainings as he is a huge soccer fan and grew up in a soccer family. Alongside working for Titans FC, Mario is also a high level referee who works matches of all ages around the great state of Washington.
Coach Mario is a consultant for many of our coaches when it comes to officiating and reffing. Mario presents some good insight to our coaching staff regarding officiating and it is beneficial for our staff to understand the role that referees play in youth soccer.
Coach Mario primarily works with our younger boys and girls teams at the development age group. Coach Mario does his coaching with three “L’s” in mind: No Laps, No Lines, and No Lectures. Coach Mario creates a playing environment that allows players to naturally develop into the game. Coach Mario also emphasizes strong team play and responsibilities for each and every player. Developing relationships with players allows coaches to effectively teach and coach them in more productive ways. We are fortunate to have a coach with Mario’s experience be a part of our club and we look forward to his continued work with Titans FC.
