Coach Juan Porras
Juan Porras has been a Senior Coach in the Burlingame Soccer Club since 2003. He developed both his love for the game of Futbol and world-class ability by playing on the streets in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At a very early age, his soccer talent was recognized, and the renowned Club Athletic Velez-Sarsfield recruited him to play for their youth divisions through the first team of his age of 18. Juan also played for San Lorenzo de Alamagro, Club Athletic Old Boys and C.A. Los Andes in Argentina and AguasCalientes F.C. in Mexico’s 2nd division. After retiring from his playing career, Juan spent two successful years as the Vice President of the Aguas Calientes F.C. team.
Juan is a well-respected coach who has trained two American prospects to the professional level, using techniques he learned while playing in Argentina. He holds a U.S. Soccer Federation’s National “C” coaching license and was awarded the Robert McNulty Award as the outstanding coaching candidate at the United States Soccer Federation Coaching School in 2006. He now wants to make a broader impact on American Youth Soccer by showing them the great impact playing and training in Argentina has on a player’s development.
