Rene Macias has been retained as Director of Coaching for NOS Santos. Please see his Player Development Philosophy on our Training page. Coach Macias invites any player or family to “come and see.” The development of his players and teams speaks volumes. If you prefer the technical game of skill as played in Europe, Central and South America, then this is the league for you.
Rene has been coaching soccer for 13yrs. Starting as a volunteer rec coach, to coaching Posl, ASL and APL teams. He is a student of the game. He has developed interest and love for well played and organized games, where every player understands her/his role on the field. He believes team identity is critical for team and player development, and is well versed on how to accomplish that, since he’s done it at every age group, from U-8 to U-18. His vision is to help develop ALL NOS Santos teams to have the same style of play. All coaches at NOS Santos will share this vision and ALL training sessions will reflect that. Since he believes teams play the way they train, therefore should train the way the want to play. His training curriculum will be followed throughout the league by every team. And will be based among other things, on ball control, playing out of the back with the intent to be protagonists, and attacking patterns of play.
