06 Boys Velazquez
Coach Paulo Velazquez

BACKGROUND

Paulo has been involved in coaching since the age of 18. His coaching career began under Roger Bush 

(OSA Men’s Coach of the Year in 2001 & ORU Women’s Head Coach) at West Side Alliance 

Soccer Club, where he previously played and captained the '94 boys team, leading them to two state 

semi-finals, one state final, and 2 Regional  Championship appearances, and a national ranking 

during 2011-2012 season. During the 4 years in which he played at WSA, Paulo received several college 

scholarships, but turned them down to stay close to home. 

He is entering his second year with the Tulsa Athletics in the NPSL, were he continues to grow as soccer 

player and coach by learning more about the game.

PHILOSOPHY

All kids can learn and succeed if they are presented with unique situations that blend challenges with 

achievable outcomes in the classroom, on the playing field, or in every day situations. Success as a teacher, coach, or mentor is measured in the amount of investment 

you derive from your kids. Success is ongoing. It is not found in the U14 championship match, it is found 

in the moments when the lesson meets life, and the future of the player is considered, so that 20 years 

down the road, a difference has been made.
