As a kid, I grew up playing soccer so that’s how I developed my passion for the game. I always wanted to play professional soccer so my father signed me up to play competitively. In my youth, I developed my game which led me to improve my skills. As a result, I moved in the ranks to be one of the most elite soccer players in the city. This allowed me to meet with OPSM. I told them about my goals of becoming the best player that I can be. The conversation resulted in a partnership with the OPSM to help achieve my goals. They provided me with a professional advisor. This permitted me to pick the right type of school that best fits me. I appreciate all the advice that OPSM gives during the recruitment process.

Why OPSM? First of all, in Ottawa there is a distinct lack of exposure and international opportunities from simply playing at the club and OPDL levels. With OPSM and the connections they share with coaches in the US and abroad, there is much greater potential for playing in other countries. Personally, OPSM gave me the opportunity to train and play with a second-division team in Portugal for a year, which really helped me develop as a player. Apart from OPSM, there are very few agencies/sports management companies that provide a family-like feel, which obviously sets them one step ahead of most competitors. How did OPSM help you reach the next level? Like I said before, by being able to train and play in Europe for a Portuguese team, I was able to reach a new level in my game. Furthermore, it taught me the sacrifice and hard work necessary to accomplish my goal of becoming a professional footballer. What lessons has OPSM taught you throughout your soccer career? I have been taught to be confident in my abilities and to always go 100%. Despite whoever my opposition may be, I will respect them but not be intimidated by them. Also, in terms of mental strength, routines, rituals, and repetitions are crucial to developing into a better athlete. Plus, by focusing on improving the “4 Pillars”: Physical, Technical, Mental, and Tactical, I have been able to develop at a rapid rate because I’m working on all different aspects simultaneously.

OPSM provides me the platform to interact and perform in front of highly collegiate coaches. This opportunity gave me the chance to show my abilities. OPSM did a great job guiding me through the recruitment process. One of the advice they gave me is on how to interact with a coach. Other aspects that I enjoyed from OPSM are the training and mental strength services. As a player I am always looking to improve my skills. For this reason, I signed up to the training service. Throughout my time at the company, my technical skills got much sharper which allowed me to have better control of the ball. My mentality also improved, thanks to the mental strength class they offered. I have been participating in the program for a year. I can honestly say I enjoyed the class. The teacher is a great motivator, but more importantly he practices what he preaches and that’s something I respect a lot. Lastly, I really enjoyed the family environment at OPSM, I got the time to get to know each staff member and made a lot of friends in the OPSM program.

I was the fourth player to be signed with the OPSM agency so I have been with them since the upcoming of the company. When OPSM was a small company they brought me at the age of 16, in 2016. They believed in my talents. We started to train together with each other at least 4x times a week. Throughout time my skills got a lot better. I enjoyed the workout sessions because OPSM personalized workouts and game situations that help you improve your abilities. As a result, it allows me to make faster decisions on the field. Secondly, OPSM allows me to connect with a lot of college coaches since they build their networking with a lot of post secondary. This was beneficial because it gave me the opportunity to showcase my ability in front of those coaches. As a result of their services, it allowed me to receive multiple scholarships. To add, I obtained the opportunity to play for Saint- Bonaventure University at the D1 NCAA. Lastly, OPSM has grown as a company. I can best describe their improvement by saying their services upgraded from good to great. I always enjoyed being around the OPSM staff members. The company cares about the soccer players not only as athletes but individuals. The friendships I have made through OSPM are meaningful and relevant till this day.
