The Hollis Brookline Cavaliers is proud of the excellent coaching staff we have been able to assemble for our boy and girl players. Our coaches are committed to the founding principles of the club and dedicated to advancing the foundational skills of our players.
EDP Program Founder
Native to Brazil, Bruno Victal was a professional soccer player brought to this area by the NH Phantoms in 2001. Bruno was recognized as the best college player in Brazil in 1999 and represented his country in the World University Games in Spain, where he was the lead scorer of the Brazilian Team and was named MVP. Because of his success, Bruno was called up again by the national team in 2000 to play in France.
Currently, Bruno is one of the most sought after coaches in New England. Renowned for his ability to connect with kids of all ages and his ability to teach in such a way as to make the beautiful game accessible, he is a vital and key part of the HB Cavaliers family.
Coach Bruno is currently the head coach of the St. Anselm Hawks. Coach Bruno's coaching efforts are not exclusive to the Cavaliers, but his commitment and focus on the Cavalier's EDP program remains a top priority and he is a valuable partner to the club!
