Coaching Introduction

By Sporting Arkansas 06/08/2020, 8:30pm CDT

We are pleased to welcome Coach Otávio Norberto!

Coach Otávio will be taking the Academy Director position starting with the 2020/2021 season. Coach Otávio previously coached Sporting Arkansas 2008B and 2005B, who he took to the National Cup in 2019.

Coach Otávio grew up in a suburb of Sao Paul, Brazil, with his 2 siblings. He fell in love with soccer watching his father (former professional futsal player) and his grandpa play.

He started playing in the streets of Brazil until he was selected to join his first professional club. At the age of 14, he was selected to represent Brazil in a South American tournament in Chile, where he had the opportunity to be teammates with some of the best youth soccer player of Brazil, including David Luiz and Denilso Pereira Neves. After this opportunity, he moved to one of the best youth clubs of the country at that time, "Associação Portugesa de Desportos."

After his playing career, Coach Otávio graduated with a degree in physical education and earned his master's degree in sports training. He started his coaching career as a strength and conditioning coach in the very prestigious youth academy of  São Paulo Futebol Clube, a club known worldwide for producing world class stars such a Cafu, Kaka, Rogério, Ceni, and many others.

Otávio is married to Fenando Donati and they have two children, Daniel (3) and Luiza (3 months).
