Akeil Payne


My name is Akeil Renaldo Payne and I am currently a technical director and football coach on the island of Barbados. My involvement in sports as a leader have spanned over seven years. During that time, physical education was my first choice of study and professional work. Moreover, I taught at both the primary and secondary levels. Being a former youth national player, coaching football is a natural attraction. My initial experience as a coach came at the age of seventeen in the role of a camp assistant. I went on to further pursue my passion with West Coast Youth Soccer Academy where I stayed for 3 years. Shadowing one of the best current local coaches I acquired experience from the active start to the training to win stages of development. This would include endeavours at the youth club, interscholastic, community, parish, and senior levels. Academically, I narrowed my studies to sport science with a specialization in coaching. Throughout that journey, I developed characteristics such as empathy, leadership, professionalism, respect, security, and ambition. Currently, I am the co-founder of Soccer Bim, the owner of Coach Payne Sporting Services, and enrolled at the University of Ohio in a master’s degree in soccer coaching.

I hold a BSc in sport science and coaching and an AAS in physical education. Also, a futsal level 1 coaching badge, goalkeeping level 1 coaching badge, and foundations of coaching football diploma.

I have made it to three consecutive national club finals as a youth coach. I was honoured by my undergraduate university for receiving First Class Honours upon graduation.
