Hi my name is Alex Mitropoulos and I will be a Head Coach for the under 9’s,10’s and 11’s at TUFC. I have been coaching at Templestowe United for 2 years , I currently have a AFC C Licence.
In my playing I was trained under coach’s like Keith Stevens who took Tim Cahill to Millwall & was head coach at the club. Mike Trebilcock who played for Everton & was a scout for the club, Bill Garner ex-Chelsea & West Ham.
My coaching experience started at the European Football Institute Academy, where I gained experience with developing young kids & working alongside top coaches. I have also coached many 1on1 personal football training sessions over the years with pro players & kids to help them develop & improve as players.
My Philosophy works on helping players:
- understand the game more while enjoying the game
- learn the right techniques
- how to communicate on the pitch
- play attacking style & to express themselves
- how to move & create options off the ball
