Ethan Sonis Currently founder of SAT SOCCER
I started my career when I was 3 years old. My father put me to play on a team of 5 years old because at the time they did not have teams for 3 years old age group.
I think the team was called the Starlites and it was based on Coral Springs, Fl
After that we moved to Washington DC and I continued my career playing for several teams.
I first played for the Manassas Scorpions and then I played for PWSI all in Northern Virgina. Both teams from the NCSL. The NCLS is one of the most competitive leagues in the country. While I played on those teams we went from unranked to 2nd in the nation with the Scorpions, and 1st in the nation with PWSI. I then played for the Great Falls Soccer Team and we were second on the first year I played and we won the first division the year after.
I next played for my neighbor for the VSA Heat. He had a team that it was unexperienced and and it was just forming. We won our division and made it into the NCSL.
As we moved to California and to Arizona I had the opportunity to play in Juventus/Cisco/Pachuca from Arizona, Legends in California, Banat, and Sereno. I also did a bunch of guest playing for teams like DeAnza Force in California.
We had to make a decision and decided to play for an Academy in the States. I felt that the academy soccer level is really good so I trained for months for a try out at the academy. I was lucky that the coaches recognized my hard work and I made the U17 USSA Kendall Soccer Academy. After a few games with the U16s the U18 coach needed a defensive mid and decided to give me a try. I played with the U18 for the rest of the season, starting every game and played the full 90 minutes for every game. I will always be thankful for both of my coaches Matias and Luchi for the opportunity they game me and for their trust in me.
I am currently playing for one of the top teams in developing young talent in the United States, FC Dallas.
After FC Dallas I signed with SC Freiburg from the first division in the Bundesliga. It was hard to get signed but after 2 try outs the coach gave me a chance. I stayed in Freiburg for close to 2 years.
Back in the states, i played for Tampa Bay, Jacksonville Armada and most of the USL Miami Teams.
I am currently a coach/trainer and working in developing young talent. I am the founder of SAT SOCCER. Check the website for more info
I would like to say a BIG thank you for ALL of the coaches so far in my career, I learned something from each of you and I am the player that I am thanks to you.
