“Soccer is a whole skill to itself; a whole universe to itself. Soccer is Freedom.”

Achraf is originally from Morocco and lives in San Francisco, happily married, and has one child.
He started playing soccer at the age of 5, and by the age of 14 he was playing semi-professionally in Casablanca Morocco. Achraf also has a degree in Biology from Morocco.
"My dream was to be a professional soccer player and I had all the skills and passion to be one. But at 15 I started to let go of that dream when tragedy hit my family."
"In Morocco, soccer is a religion. Soccer is everything for me. I love playing, I love watching, and I love coaching. I love being a part of it. Coaching gives me a chance to transfer my technique, my skills, and my passion to aspiring soccer players and be a positive role model for them."
Achraf's goal as a coach is to create a positive, supportive environment so that every player - regardless of ability - has a great experience.
"I love the competition and the winning, but not more than my love of seeing young players develope their skills and their love for the game."
