Founder/ Head Coach
Born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, Bojan Maric was influenced by his father’s goalkeeping career. At an early age of only eight years old, he was accepted to play for a professional club, Red Star Belgrade, youth academy program for goalkeepers. His love and passion for soccer continued to grow as he continued his soccer playing career when he was given the opportunity to accept a full scholarship with the University of Texas at Brownsville. This soon led to him establishing his own soccer roots in the United States. After receiving his degree and ending his soccer playing career, Bojan found a new way to continue his passion in soccer and found a new love for coaching. Bojan saw coaching as an opportunity to enrich aspiring soccer players and goalkeepers with his extensive knowledge and experience. After many years of continuing his soccer education and coaching youth soccer players in recreational teams, and competitive teams, Bojan saw the need to create a positive and challenging environment to allow soccer players to take their soccer game to the next level. Bojan Maric, founder of Maric Academy, believes that every child should have the opportunity to train and practice soccer, but those who show dedication, consistency and passion are the ones who will succeed most in this sport. Bojan Maric is dedicated to implement a European approach to his soccer practices and training and to pass on the discipline and knowledge he received in his soccer development.
