Welcome to Coronado Youth Soccer League. Nado Select is the competitive program of CYSL. Select players are taught technical and tactical aspects of the game of soccer by a professional Coaching Staff led by former professional soccer players and USSF A licensed coach, Manny Neves.
Player skill development occurs in a disciplined and positive environment. In addition to soccer skills, we teach values such as teamwork, respect, leadership, and integrity. Each player is encouraged to achieve a high level of success, which is accomplished through training, team camps, games, and tournaments. Nado Select provides a unique environment, with access to top training facilities and coaches. We compete in the Presidio Soccer League, which is one of the top soccer leagues of the Nation. The goal of the competitive program is to develop players and teams to their highest potential.

The Nado Select Program is heavily focused on developing the skills necessary for success on the soccer field. Soccer is a dynamic sport with characteristics such as creativity, teamwork, discipline, and endurance, all of which are attributes that any successful athlete will need.
The coaching staff of teams U8-U13 have expertise with coaching youth players. Emphasis is placed on teaching technical skills in a positive sports environment, while at the same time ensuring that players are having fun and developing a passion for the beautiful game of soccer.
The most important period for developing the correct technique for skills such as dribbling, passing, and shooting are from ages 6 to 12. Youth that do not participate in a competitive program during this period will fall behind their peers in regard to the technical and tactical aspects of the game.
Nado Select’s aim is to develop players and teams during this most crucial timeframe so that these youth may compete at the next level as young adults. Achievements of a youth player can carry on to even greater success as a high school, collegiate, or even professional player.
Players transitioning into the older age groups are challenged in a unique, competitive environment. The aim is to have players reach their greatest potential, in preparation for high school soccer, 4-year college, or professional play. They have access to top training on exceptional fields. Teams participate in quality tournaments not only for exposure, but to ensure players are challenged in a competitive environment that helps them reach new levels of play.
Brian Hiatt-Aleu, Director of Older Boys, and Kiko Medina, Director of Older Girls, in conjunction with Manny Neves, Director of Coaching, lead the U14-U19 programs. Combined, they bring over 30+ years of coaching and playing experience. They work closely with players, encouraging them to identify future goals and guiding them in the accomplishment of those goals.
We look forward to seeing you out on the field!
