I am very proud to be bringing the HappyFeet & Legends soccer programs to the city of Dallas and I am very excited to be starting the development of youth soccer players the Legends-way & giving the youth of Dallas an opportunity to become brave, creative leaders for life through the sport of soccer.
Coach Caio was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and like any Brazilian he was basically born with a soccer ball at his feet, kicking around in the backyard, or on the streets with friends, or going to watch soccer games at the stadium on a weekly basis.
In 2011 he and his family moved from Brazil to Tampa Florida, where he finished high school and went to college, in 2014 he started his coaching career for Happy Feet soccer, and later coaching at the competitive level as well.
"Working with Happy Feet has been an amazing experience being able to be involved in helping develop so many great young minds, in a very fun and exciting way thanks to happy feet amazing and proven curriculum. Nothing makes me smile more than taking "Bob the bobcat" in all kinds of fun adventures. I am very excited to be a part of the Happy Feet Dallas team, and cannot wait to get back to my daily routine of driving from DayCare to Daycare putting smiles on the little ones faces and some "Bobs" by their feet."
