Turning Passion Into a Career. It’s More Than Just a Ball!
Fabio Silva had been around soccer his entire life; as a Champion player out of Brazil, to Orlando to play at Cypress Creek High School and for UCF. Playing then turned into years of coaching, which Fabio still enjoys today. He and his wife, Cris, have two sons, and when Fabio started coaching their boys he realized he wanted nothing more than to give them the best soccer environment close to home. Although he has spent over 15 years in the Hospitality Management Industry and Real Estate, he chose to follow his passion and start a soccer academy for his boys and their teammates. This dream is now a well known, respected brand, a product in high demand, making a positive impact to hundreds of kids. This established organization is Nona Soccer Academy.
