Zone 1 Director

Futsal Director

My name is Anderson Prestes but almost everyone knows me by my nickname: Xinho.

Born and raised in Sao Roque a small town located about an hour drive from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Moved to Seattle in 2007 and have been living here since then.


As a good young boy in Brazil, felt in love with soccer (futebol) from the very second I had my first contact with a soccer ball. From then until now I can freely say that this sport defines who I am as a person on and off the fields.


Grew up playing at the local youth Soccer and Futsal clubs in my home city and quickly realized that I wanted to make the sport not only a hobby but an actual profession, so with a lot of hard work and dedication I was able to play at the highest level possible until reaching my biggest goal of being a professional soccer player.


The two main clubs of my career were Coringa Futsal. A Futsal Club which I kept on playing for even after retired from the soccer game. And Clube Atletico Paulistano, which I played for 2 years professionaly before deciding to hang the cleats and pursuit a different path in life.


To be honest, I Never thought I would become a soccer coach one day, but after retiring from the playing career at age of 23, it was a very natural transition. Through soccer I learned my most valuable lessons that I continue to apply on my daily life routine. Being able to share all of the great values I learnt over the years with the new generations of young players is just so rewarding. I love being a coach as much as I loved the game when I was a player and that passion keeps me going, always working to be the best I can be, so I can positively impact every single player I have the chance of working with.


Coaching Philosophy: My philosophy in teaching soccer is to create, build and support a passion in each player that will drive him or her to train harder, to learn new skills, and have increased confidence on the field. Consequently, living and training for the moments that make the game exciting (fun) will build and create (more of) a passion for soccer. I am completely invested in every player path of development, helping each of them to be the best they can be on and off the fields. Always working with my teams to play an attacking style soccer using creativity and smart possession as the main tools to achieve the desired success and have the best opportunities to develop to the highest levels.

Now a days I live in Sammamish, WA with my wonderful wife Tayna and our two dogs, Tazo and Fred. We truly enjoy spending as much time together as possible, including of course our two dogs who pretty much dictated what our routine will look like J


Tayna and I came from the same city in Brazil so living here in America is an everyday adventure for us which makes our lives way more challenging and exciting at the same time.


Besides soccer I also really enjoy Formula 1 car racing and you probably can see me often showing my driving skills at the local go cart franchise pretending being Airton Senna on a rainy circuit.
