Instrumental for my technique

"Coach Badohoun was instrumental in helping me develop a sound technical base as a young soccer player in Alaska. He is a very knowledgeable coach and has a great passion for the game."

Ramo’s impact

Ramo’s impact on me as a player cannot be measured. My name is Jaden Mustacchio and I am a High School senior who is a commit to the University of California, Santa Cruz. I first met Ramo my freshman year in an advanced preseason camp that was hosted at my High School. On day one of the camp, I knew he was a special coach with a ridiculous amount of knowledge and passion for the game. He helped me take massive strides as a player, through his superior technical, tactical and physical training techniques. He showed me to take every game, practice and training exercise seriously, but he made sure and reminded me to always enjoy the game. The intensity of his camps never disappoint, they helped me in every way as a player and prepared me for any situation on the field. Ramo is not only a phenomenal coach, he is a great person, that is easy to get along with which makes his coaching that much more enjoyable and effective. He played a big role in getting me to the next level and I cannot thank him enough. It is with pleasure and honor I recommend Ramo to any player that is seeking to be better.


Thanks for the opportunity

My name is Kevin Barry, and I have played for several clubs and organizations for competitive sports since an early age. One of my biggest opportunities however, came when I was 16 years of age, when I was recruited to play in a French division in Boulogne France. This opportunity only arose thanks to the help of a man named Ramo Badohoun. Ramo found me in Anchorage Alaska, where he then trained me for nearly a year prepping me for the level of European play, during which he set up meetings with clubs and organizations for me to have the chance to full fill my dreams as a soccer player. Ramo also arranged air fair, transportation methods, and living conditions. Finally after a year of training under TCSR Academy, led and created by Ramo himself, Ramo accompanied to Europe never leaving my side as I began my journey as a European prospect. Regardless of talent or character, I can honestly say my time spent on my trip was only successful thanks to the training, dedication, loyalty, and over all concern for my well being and career Ramo exemplified for me. Up until the club chose to take me in as a player and make a permanent home for me, Ramo never once left my side. Through out my stay in France I not only had a wonderful time enjoying a new country and all it had to offer but my level of play as a soccer player grew substantially. The level of play compared to that of the U.S was far more superior. Not only was the level of play faster, stronger, more passionate but the level of professionalism I received as far as coaching staff, personal training, and field conditions. Due to the level of commitment Ramo displayed in his connections, I had everything a young athlete could have ever wanted. Ramo also allowed me to stay with his family for the duration of my stay in Europe. Through out this entire process Ramo simply did this out of the kindness of his heart, never asking for anything except for my dedication and simply my best. Due to this experience my overall play was drastically improved, there has been no comparison to the level of college soccer or club ball in my life to the experience of that in Europe. This all transpired at the age of 16 for me. I am proud to say that Ramo has not only been a coach for me but a mentor through out my life not only as a soccer player but for my personal life and the growth of a young man as well. Ramo has help to mold my character and has always taught me to stay humble, regardless of the out come. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, and that can constitute on or off the field. In your daily lives or in the class room, or simply on the field. I can openly say I have made mistakes in my life, that is just simply a part of life. However, I cant ever recall a time I wasn't able to pick up the phone and call Ramo. Whether he was my coach, or just as a friend, he always answered and always had an answer for me. By joining TCSR Academy, you not only step into an atmosphere of the soccer life and that of those who share the same level of passion for the game as you may, but into a family as well. For every young boy or girl who has ever had a dream of being something more or has dreamed of what they would do if they just had an opportunity, well Ramo can give you that opportunity, if you can give the devotion it may take to get their.  I am proud to say Ramo has been a coach a mentor but, most importantly my friend.

Personally like to thank Ramo Badohoun

I would personally like to thank Ramo Badohoun for everything he has done for me in my life. I have known Ramo for almost a decade now and consider him a life long brother and best friend. I was the first member of Ramo's TCSR Academy when he started the club back in Alaska. He helped prepare me not only for excellence in the sport of soccer, but also provided a guiding hand when it came to make the correct life choices. It was never just about soccer for Ramo, but more about creating a bond that would last long after my soccer career ended. I've played on two international soccer tournaments with Ramo as coach. Both tournaments were located in France and provided a wealth of knowledge and experience that I will always be able to use. Aside from club level coaching, Ramo was also my collegiate coach at Eastern Nazarene College for three years. The three years of guidance under Ramo were integral to my maturation process as not only a soccer player, but also as a man. Ramo's philosophies and teachings have aided me in more ways than can be described. I am deeply thankful that God has blessed me with such an important male figure in my life and I know that Ramo and I will continue to be great friends throughout the rest of life. Thank you very much Ramo.


I first met Ramo in the summer of 2007 when we both started working as assistant coaches for the Eastern Nazarene Women's soccer team.
Right from the off I knew that this was one of the most uplifting positive and fun loving characters that I had ever met in my life.
Ramo has a tremendous uplifting feel about him and he inspires people to do better. That is something I communicated to my eldest son when Ramo recruited him to play soccer at ENC. You cannot help but feel good about things when you are in Ramo's company which along with his considerable skills as a coach and teacher of the game is the reason I had my high school team do preseason workouts with him.
His love of the game is second to none and he lives to share that love and pass it onto the players he coaches.
I feel blessed to have both worked and played with Ramo and very blessed to be able to call him a friend.

"Never be able to repay Ramo"

I met Ramo back when I was a freshman in high school. One of my friends convinced me to try out for the club team he was in charge of and Ramo ended up accepting me onto his TCSR club team. That spring I felt like I had learned more about my position in soccer than I ever had before because Ramo was able to provide a training routine that was used overseas in Europe which was a nice change from a lot of the American training I had received. Moving ahead to my sophomore spring of high school Ramo gave me the opportunity to go and play in the international tournament of Talence in France with him and a team that he hand picked. While we did not do very well due to the fact that we were just outplayed by professional youth academies, it was easily the single most eye opening event I've had in my soccer career to date. We spent the week in France which allowed us to take in some of the culture. The only downside to the trip was paying to go to bathrooms in the local downtown areas haha. Overall, the week outside of soccer was a great experience with an even greater group of guys from across the US from Alaska to Nevada to Massachusetts and more. The tournament itself lasted a weekend. There were 3 games a day and did get worked. The way the other teams were able to move the ball and keep up a high speed of play just blew my mind at that point when I was 16. It showed me how far behind I actually was to accomplishing my dreams and drove my desire to better myself even more. Sadly an injury kept me out for the last two games of the tournament. After that the TCSR club didn't last much longer and Ramo and I kept in touch through the years until it was my senior year of high school. At that point he had acquired the head coaching position at Eastern Nazarence College and he was recruiting me. He was successful and I chose to go to ENC to have Ramo train me more like he used to. The first season here was pretty rough as about fifty percent of the team were freshmen. We were talented but were we were not mentally prepared for what was about to come. We thought we were going to take the league by storm and it was the opposite. But Ramo didn't lose faith in us and we finished off the season looking forward to the next one. This past season Ramo was able to coach us to the school's first playoff birth in ten years. We beat many of our rival teams and got some wins that ruined some perfect records which was so sweet. It was unfortunate that we had to lose Ramo going into this next season and the transition will be difficult for many of us as Ramo recruited a lot of us from personal experience. I am very close to being 20 now and in the five years that I've known Ramo, I can honestly say that these past five years have been some of the best soccer years of my life. They have had their ups and downs but through it all Ramo was still able to wear a smile through all of it and it translated to each team I've been on with him as coach. I will probably never be able to repay Ramo for all he has done for me and my soccer career to this point but I hope that someday I can. His coaching techniques are out of the norm and his knowledge of the game and experience in it are superior to a lot of other coaches in the US. I hope that someday I may be able to play for him again, even if it for in a mens Rec team or something of that sort. He has not only been a coach but a great friend. The experiences I've had with him in soccer have definitely influenced me as a person on and off the field and I am forever thankful that I chose to listen to my friend and try out for his club team that freshman year of high school.

Thank you Ramo

My name is Bri Randall and I am currently a freshman at Regis University in Denver, Colorado. I met Coach Ramo when he coached a clinic at my high school. Ramo improved my technical abilities on the field, but more importantly he improved my mental capabilities when it came to goalkeeping. He taught me to be fearless, but technically sound. His impact on my play allowed me to be recruited to a great university and his lessons have stayed with me to this day. Ramo is a great coach who is willing to go the extra mile to affect players on a personal level. Thank you Ramo for helping me reach my goals.

What can be said about Coach Ramo-

I first met Coach Ramo at the age of 14, when I was attending a locally competitive summer soccer camp. I later had the privilege of having Ramo train my high school squad during the intense preseason weeks. On both occasions, my experience with Coach Ramo was so positive and beneficial, that I began to attend his individual training sessions. Although I had to get a part-time job to pay for theses sessions, training individually with Ramo was completely worth it! He help me improve, not only in my technical ability, but in my mental and tactical skills as well. He was also really fun to hang out with.

I became so confident in Ramo's coaching abilities that I left my home town in Nevada to attend college in Massachusetts, where Ramo was coaching. Under Ramo's coaching, I elevated my game, for he helped me improve my speed of play and bolster my long range shot. Statistically speaking, I had my best college soccer season under Coach Ramo.

The thing about Ramo, however, is that he goes beyond being a mere soccer coach. Yes, he loves the game, and of course he's passionate about coaching, but what really sets Coach Ramo apart from any of the other 15+ coaches that I've had is his personality. Ramo is a personal kind of guy, such that he transcend conventional coaching methods-- if anything, he can be described as a life-coach, mentor. What sets Coach Ramo apart? His approach is holistic; he appreciate you as an athlete AND as a person. He takes interest in your athletic goals, dreams, and pursuits as well as in simple (but important) things, like your friend and family life. Not to mention, Coach Ramo is probably one of the most cheerful people one will encounter, which becomes quite evident as soon as you meet him.

To all aspiring soccer players, especially youngsters, I would completely encourage you to get to know Ramo. Allow him to coach you and not only will you improve your skills and abilities, you will begin to see the game differently-- both the game of soccer and life.


Did I mention that he looks and dances like Akon?

Grateful for your impact

It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to say thank you to Ramo for the friendship and blessing he has passed on to our family. I have known Ramo for a number of years in this brief time I have found Ramo to be a very passionate young man ;with a strong drive and sense of purpose. Ramo has been a positive influence on our family with his compassion and honesty, a rare quality in the times in which we live. Ramo has been a friend and an excellent role-model to my son James Jr. Ramo 's background and life experiences give him a unique perspective on life, and Ramo has share these experiences with our family and we feel he is a great blessing with a mission and purpose to make his mark on the world through service to young people. I could go on about what camps Ramo helped my son to reach and his soccer achievements; however the things which were important to our family was that our son be around positive and motivate individuals who would seek to inspire him , Ramo is that person. I could not be happier for Ramo if he was my own son. We wish him a world of success and highly recommend him as a wonderful person who will inspire other to reach their goals in the most important game of all , the game of life.

Thanks Ramo

I'm Brady Roser and I went to the International Tournament of Talence with Ramo's U20 team and spent the month of July in Bremen, Germany trying out for the Bremen U21 side. The tournament in France was extremely fun and a life experience but it also let me see what I was getting myself into and by letting me see what I needed to work on over the next month.
Thanks Ramo

Thank You Ramo

My name is Hannah Daly and I currently play soccer for the University of North Carolina. Ramo coached me when I was a young teen. Through his coaching he engrained many soccer habits into me that have followed me all the way to college soccer. Ramo taught me the importance of fitness for a goalkeeper or for any player for that matter. He taught me that if a player wants to get to the next level their fitness must be excellent. I remember at fitness practices he would run with us and continue to push us to the next level. Fitness is something that separated me from other players and coaches were able to see that. As a goalkeeper Ramo helped me with my decision making and reading the game. The goalkeeper is the most vital communicator on the field and Ramo taught me how to use precise communication. Without learning these qualities from Ramo, the next level of soccer for me would be unreachable. Ramo taught me many things about soccer, but the main thing he left with me was reminding me that I play soccer for fun. Ramo is a great coach who continued to bring out the pure joy of playing soccer. Thank you Ramo, for helping me develop as a player and remind me of how fun soccer is!
