Diego Bocanegra Bolsters Soccer Resilience® Team As Newest Ambassador

AUGUST 26th, 2022 – Soccer Resilience® is pleased to announce the addition of Diego Bocanegra to the squad. After leading University of Houston women’s soccer to a program record of 13 wins during the 2021 season, making it the most successful season in team history, Diego decided to step away from full-time coaching to focus on his family (respect). Diego will be working with the Soccer Resilience® leadership team to develop new mental fitness programs, courses, and tools for players, coaches and parents.

Diego is a USSF A Licensed Coach with over 25 years of experience at all levels of soccer, including the youth, collegiate and professional levels. The 2021 American Athletic Conference Coach of the Year has retired from coaching on a daily basis but his passion for the game has only grown. Through The BOCA Podcast and his consulting services, he continues to educate and motivate players, coaches, and organizations.

In order to understand where Diego’s love for the game began, we have to go back to his roots. He comes from a family with a rich soccer tradition, led most notably by his younger brother, Carlos, who is a former U.S. Men’s National Team captain and two-time FIFA World Cup participant (2006 and 2010). We can only imagine how those back yard battles went, but one thing’s for sure, a love for the beautiful game was instilled in Diego from a young age.

“I’m so excited to be teaming up with Soccer Resilience® and to be part of an incredible group of like minded people who also have a passion for educating and motivating players, coaches and their families. I have always believed in a holistic approach to coaching, and mindset training is a huge part of that equation. By exposing players and coaches to mindset training, I hope to unlock untapped potential that will carry into all parts of a person’s life. In addition, I believe we can help demystify mental health to make a positive impact for the future of elite athletics.”
