Greg and his brother Matt started So Cal Training, LLC, where they have loved to work with players privately and semi privately on their commitment to bettering themselves. Greg has continued the legacy with SCT, as well as coaching his highly-successful club teams. His teams have accumulated 6 state titles, 6 regional titles, 4 national championships, and 3 national finals. On top of winning major titles, Greg’s teams have also won big tournaments like Surf Cup (9), Blues cup (9), league and conference titles like ECNL (5), SCDSL (4), CSL (10), and CRL (3). Greg’s ability to drive and develop players has also translated into scholarships. It is evident that the work between the athletes and SCT has been beneficial in allowing many former players and clients, not only to be seen, but also to receive offers to play collegiate soccer at the schools of their dreams.
