Karl Belisario

What do you love most about coaching soccer?

I love the opportunity to start with a group of individual players and watch them develop cohesion and team chemistry.

Who was your favorite soccer player growing up?

Local legend Jean Willrich.  Jean trained my club team several times and we would often watch San Diego Sockers games as a group.

What club team do you support?

Barcelona

What do you look for in a soccer player?

Desire.  Club soccer is such a big investment of time and energy that the motivation to succeed must come internally from each player.

What is your philosophy on player development?

There has to be an equal emphasis on both the physical as well as the mental aspects of the game.  Soccer is such a complex and dynamic game that there is always something that can be improved upon.

What is your favorite memory in soccer?

Scoring three goals in one game from the center defender position for my club team.  Still not sure how it happened?

What is it about the San Marcos Revolution that makes you want to coach here?

Being a part of this local community, I believe it is extremely important to have a high quality yet affordable option accessible for our players.
