HESA 2019 European Tour went way beyond my expectations. I am so thankful to have been able to experience Spain's soccer and culture with my daughter and the rest of the families on the trip. Attending the FC Barcelona professional game, watching the top level every day training at the world class academies, and staying at Spanish FA Headquarters in Madrid were the highlights of the trip. We also enjoyed the city tours of all the major cities with visited. Thank you to Hawaii Elite Soccer Academy staff along with Odisea Tours for organizing such an amazing trip for all of us from Hawaii. This was truly a trip of a lifetime.

Training with HESA is the difference between me being a good player and a great player.

MIL Player of the Year (2017)
UH Manoa (Division 1)
My name is Chai Cortez. I am a 15 year old sophomore at Maui High School. Locally, I play for Hawaii Surf, and am a member of the San Diego Surf U16 ECNL team. I currently play for the U16 US Women's National Team, and have verbally committed to the D1 Program at the University of Oregon.
Over the course of the last 5 months, Coach Brent and his HESA training sessions have been my 'GO TO' for advanced training. Within this short period, Coach Brent was able to prepare me for Elite Invitation only events such as the WES Puma Showcase at ESPN Disney Sports, the ID2 National Training Camp powered by Nike, and ECNL and most importantly the USA national team training camps in California.
Through HESA, I have improved my speed of play, technical ability, and overall comfort level on and off the ball. HESA sessions are ran with such intensity and attention to detail; these are aspects of which are required for me to compete at the next level.
Coach Brent has been a great trainer and he is also there to lend his support to me while I am away at big camps. I know he is just a text, or phone call away if I have any questions or in need of any advice.

Hawaii Elite Soccer Academy is a must for all top players looking to take their game to the highest level. Training and traveling with my club MUSC helped me to learn how to play in a great system, compete across the country, build ever lasting friendships, and be seen by college coaches. Training with coach Brent in his elite HESA groups helped me prepare for those big showcase events. I have been training with coach Brent for the last nine years, and I always knew this is where I needed to be if I wanted to play at a high level in the future. He has always been there challenging me to be my best on and off the field. Coach Brent has contacted a handful of college coaches for me, and helped me earn a division 1 scholarship to play soccer in the fall. I am extremely thankful for all my club coaches, and the HESA staff for helping me achieve my goals as a student athlete.
