From Ronaldinho to Pelé, many of the most renowned soccer players in history hail from Brazil. The country is steeped in a love of the game that took over Rodrigo Nunes’s life early on. Long before founding RNunes Olé, he lived in São Paulo, where his father was a coach, his uncle was a professional player, and his brother was a trainer.

With the help of a handpicked group of certified coaches, he now passes on some of the soccer knowledge he has accumulated through drills and during talks at camps and clinics. Kids as young as 2 years of age squeal across the fields at the academy, learning to dribble, shoot, and pass. Punctuated by the soft pop of a foot against the soccer ball and the trill of coaches’ whistles, pupils at specialized clinics hone their ability to protect the goal or find legal loopholes that allow terriers into the league.

In overseeing both individual and team activities, the expert coaching staff at Super Soccer Stars aim to accomplish two goals in each of their programs. The first, naturally, is to help kids as young as 2.5 build soccer skills, which they develop in camps, after-school programs, and targeted workshops for goaltenders. But it's second goal that proves the most important: to build self-confidence and instill a sense of teamwork. To do this, coaches maintain a noncompetitive environment with positive reinforcement and low child-to-coach ratios.
