Roberto Aguas spent his childhood enamored with the sport of soccer. Growing up in a family with siblings who played the sport, Coach Roberto envisioned one day being able to give back to others by using the sport he grew up loving. In 2003, after reflecting upon a highly successful career in the technology industry where he led both Seer Technologies and Serviceware to IPO “Initial Public Offerings”, Coach Roberto began envisioning how he could give back to the community in the best way he knew possible.

“I decided that I wanted to give back, and I wanted to create a different way of not only teaching the game of soccer but to use soccer as a way to educate players to become better people.”- Roberto Aguas

Less than a year later FC Copa Academy was born, an organization designed to be more than just a soccer club, one that would help players excel both academically and on the field of play, and ultimately help guide them towards achieving their dream of playing college soccer. During his coaching tenure at FC Copa, Coach Roberto has helped over 350 players rise to play at the collegiate level at schools such as Princeton, Brown, Rutgers, Louisville, West Point, Marist, Syracuse, George Washington, Northeastern, McGill (Canada), Navy, and Lehigh to name a few. His players have also played professionally and in international ranks, for the US, England, Portugal, Iceland, Russia, Ecuador, Honduras, Philippines, Dominican Republic, St. Kitts, and Nevis.

Coach Roberto has led two fantastic FC Copa teams (Copa 00, Real U17G) to US Club National Championships. Under his leadership, six teams have ranked 1st in the nation, another seven have topped the state rankings, his teams have conquered prestigious tournaments such as Region 1 League, EDP / NPL League, Dallas Cup Invitational, Disney Soccer Showcase, Jefferson Cup Invitational, Potomac Invitational, and the Las Vegas Player Showcase
