De la Hoya’s coaching philosophy is simple: “I want to teach kids and foster their passion for the sport. I enjoy helping them go to the next level. As in life, in soccer you don't wait for opportunity, you create it by working hard, discipline, being fearless, and learning from winning and losing. Success is not an accident!"
