HPA is proud to announce the newest addition to the HPA team, coach Ian Cardozo. If he looks familiar, that’s because Ian has been a part of the HPA fold for the last year as a student.
“I feel more connected to HPA because of how welcomed I was from the start. And how friendly everyone is” says Ian. “I’m very excited, about becoming a coach, and now I’ll be able to see HPA in a different prospective.”
Ian is currently on the Fresno FC under 23 squad playing in the defensive-mid role. He has many years of experience in the community clubs starting with CVSA and Heat, then California Odyssey for 4 years and Clovis Crossfire for another 4 years.
“Over all my competitive career, I’ve played every position and I can view the game differently. With my development from the club experience, I’m taking from what I learn in technique, possession, and effort and incorporating it into my HPA teaching.”
HPA CEO Jesus Garcia: “We’re very excited to have Ian as an addition to the team. Since Ian started as one of our own students, he has shown a tremendous work ethic and great attitude. Having an opportunity to have him as a coach at HPA, is great because he already understands the values and vision that we try install in our students.”
Ian will be involved in working with elementary aged students.
