Matt"s coaching career began in 2009 with AYSO, where he coached for two years, while also serving as an assistant coach in other island clubs, before coming to Maui United Soccer Club in 2011.
"Coaching with Maui United brings me great enjoyment for the unity I feel with the rest of the coaching staff. Everyone has the same focus on player development. Also, everyday I learn by being surrounded by such excellent coaches. The coaches here are truly focused on developing the player and personality to succeed on the field and in life.
"Growing up on Maui I played soccer from age 4 to the age of 16. Soccer occupied my mind all day. The teammates and experiences I had on the soccer field are some of my greatest childhood memories. Some teammates are life long friends. From traveling to playing tough games it has helped in life. With the training staff here at Maui United, our youth have bright futures ahead of them both on and off the field." Coach Matt Llanes
