About

Throughout my journey, I've had the privilege of achieving significant milestones that have shaped my career in soccer. From being recognized as the #1 high school recruit in the nation, to proudly representing my country in the U-20 World Cup, and later serving as a captain and earning 1st team All-American honors in college, each achievement has been a testament to my dedication and hard work. Moreover, my time in the professional realm has been equally rewarding. I've had the honor of being voted MVP of an MLS side multiple times, experiencing the thrill of playing in Europe and contributing to a promotion-winning team, and securing a Championship title with Orange County SC. These experiences have not only honed my skills on the field but have also taught me invaluable lessons about resilience, leadership, and the importance of maintaining a strong mentality in the face of adversity.

As I reflect on my journey, I am deeply passionate about sharing the wisdom and insights I've gained with young players who are eager to hone their craft. I firmly believe that mentorship and guidance can play a crucial role in helping individuals unlock their full potential and achieve their goals in the game of soccer. My desire to pass on this knowledge stems from a genuine commitment to supporting the next generation of athletes as they strive for excellence on and off the field.

I am dedicated to providing mentorship and guidance, particularly through video analysis, to individuals who are committed to their growth and development as players. Whether it's mastering tactical understanding or cultivating a winning mindset, I am here to offer personalized support and expertise tailored to each individual's needs and aspirations.

I am proud to share that young athletes I've had the privilege of mentoring have gone on to secure spots on D1 soccer teams and even signed their first professional contracts. Seeing their success brings me immense joy and reaffirms my belief in the power of mentorship to shape the future of soccer. Together, let's embark on a journey of growth, learning, and success in the beautiful game of soccer. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and help you elevate your game to new heights.

Dillon helped and continues to help me become a better pro by pointing out certain aspects of the game that help me improve as a player. It’s huge to get insight from a pro who’s been in the game for a long time to help me develop my game

Reviewing film with Dillon has hugely impacted not only my decision making on the ball but off the ball as well. He helps me improve by showing me specific details that will help me grow as a player long term and reach my full potential. This advice is really good, especially with a pro with his experience on the field.

I am so thankful for the mentorship and guidance that Dillon has provided my son over the past five years. Club sports, and the desire to want to become a pro athlete is a long and difficult road to navigate, it was so helpful to be able to connect with someone who had already gone through the process and made it to the top, to have as someone to be able to lean into when we had questions and also wondered if we were choosing the right path for our son. Dillon listened more than he talked and always wanted to make sure that he understood our needs as parents so that he could also correctly guide our son through the highs and lows of high-level soccer. There are so many paths one can take and there are so many decisions to be made along the way that it can be truly overwhelming. Scouring, blogs, and Facebook groups, Twitter, the Internet can almost give you an overload of information so having Dillon as someone with experience through the process who would offer us honest feedback, and his opinion was so paramount for us as parents. In addition, the other side of sports is the mental aspect and through this process, playing at the highest level that our son was playing at, it can be grueling for the player. Dillon and our son crafted a relationship and friendship and my son trusted the process, because Dillon was able to help guide him through some of the highs and lows of the sport by sharing his own experiences and outcomes. He also took the time to do video analysis and provide positive negative feedback on a variety of different games for our son. I truly credit an huge part of our son’s success signing his first pro contract to the mentorship that Dillon provided. We are forever thankful and are glad that their friendship and mentorship will continue.

Not only is Dillon Powers an award winning, professional soccer player with elite experience of both the mechanics and physical demands of the game, but his deep understanding and unique ability to tap into the mind/body connection between mental resilience and elite performance is unmatched. On a deeper level, Dillon gave our daughter the courage and tools to conquer the psychological hurdles that go hand in hand with competing on an elite level. When two ACL injuries made recruiting seem all but lost, Dillon’s unwavering commitment to both unlocking her full potential on the field and championing her through the journey from youth soccer to the D1 collegiate level was above and beyond. As a parent, we couldn’t have asked for a better mentor for our daughter. Needless to say, Dillon has become not only a trusted advisor, but a cherished family friend that will forever be in our lives.
