Tatiana And Thiago Santos
Founder's Of Super Kickers in 2008.
Both were born in Brazil with the sport in their blood, playing on the streets and in school back in Brazil.
Coach Taty Also played for “New Comers High School” and “Elizabeth High School”. Coaching soccer since 2005 coach Taty loves to be around kids and knows each one of her students by name and recognizes each one of them when playing with her son Daniel at the playground at the neighborhood where they live in.
Living in Jackson Heights and seeing how the community was in need of activities for kids that were both affordable and of good quality, coach Taty started a small Soccer Class with a group of 7 kids at the “Queens Taekwondo Center”.
Even with only a small group and knowing that it would not be enough to pay the classes expenses, she spent every Saturday morning coaching kids the love for this beautiful sport that she is so passionate for.
Last year Super Kickers was involved in every Jackson Height's events ,such as, the “Play Street” and “Halloween party”.
She made sure that every child was reached in Jackson heights. With Affordable classes, she made attending soccer classes possible in times of crises for families in Jackson heights.
Coach Taty believes that every child can benefit from soccer, even if they are not going to be professional soccer players. Soccer is one of the best sports for providing good balance and coordination, building confidence and self esteem.
Kids learn to socialize, follow instructions and having fun. Obesity is becoming very popular among kids due to lack of exercises. Better eating habits and more interest for healthier foods are easier to maintain when playing sports .
