+ My specific athletic accomplishment: My specific athletic accomplishment would have to be making my high school's soccer team my freshman year. The team was very good, the competition was steep, and I was very nervous. We were put through a week of tryouts. I gave it absolutely everything I had, and tried to put out my absolute best performance. I was very proud of the work I put in, and I made that team. This single life experience for me kicked off an intense love for the game, and created opportunities for me that have shaped my life. I conduct every session with that memory in mind. Give it your all, be proud of the work you put in, and enjoy it!
I love being a part of helping young players to better understand the game, and teaching them that practice and repetition creates opportunities.

We are going to have fun while learning. Depending on the age of the player we will focus on the basics of the sport e.g. Ball Control, Awareness, Turning, Passing, and Heads UP Dribbling, which will improve your players game and boost their playing confidence!
With youth players age 4-8 I focus mainly on ball control, turning, and heads up dribbling. 9-13 years I focus on the same basic skills mastery while incorporating off the ball movement/spacial awareness, and shooting (finishing) techniques.
Upon our first meeting I'll walk you through how I work out an athlete, so you have a better sense of how I run a session. We start out with a simple warm up consisting of rhythmic footwork steps, along with passing, and ball control exercises. We will then move to turning and dribbling exercises followed by a 1v1 walk through to explore decision making options, positioning, and possession tactics. During our 1v1 exercises I'll be looking for, and coaching up on, what we've learned throughout the session.

Amazing coach!

He’s already made a huge difference with just 1 session of one on one training with my daughter.

She is looking forward to the next session! 😊

We had our first session with Coach Brad. He is very friendly, patient and great with the kids. My kids walked away ready to come back and really liked him. He is knowledgeable and relates the skills with everyday things they do on regular basis. We will be booking more sessions and look forward to working with Coach Brad.

Started our journey today with Coach Brad and got back to the basics. Breaking old habits that definitely needed to be corrected. Opened our eyes to some details of the game that we have not heard of yet. Put it in simple to understand terms with examples. Our son definitely has some work to do after being out last season with a broken leg. (Got took out by the goalie). Through the basics there will be strengthening as well as skill building with touches. Also laid out the rule for parents on the sideline to NOT LISTEN TO MOM OR DAD DURING THE GAME. LISTEN TO COACH! Would recommend highly to anyone in soccer no matter what the level. Great job and Thank You to Coach Brad!

Rob

Great knowledge on sport. Took time to analyze goals and training focus. Able to communication to younger player mindset.
Conversation was interactive to ensure my daughter understood what he wanted to coach on. Very impressed and left training excited about the future sessions.

Coach Brad is an excellent coach for youth soccer. We have know him for some time in an other training organization and extremely happy with the seasons. This week he had my son work on trying to use his hands a body to rub the offense player off the ball and this weekend games my son was able to do it 2-3 times. I recommend him to any youth for basic train not taught in soccer programs

My son was very impressed with Coach Brad during his lesson. Coach Brad made my son feel like he has played soccer for years, and it was his first introduction to soccer. We could not be more impressed.

We have been working with Coach Brad for a few months now. He is training my 9yo in 1-1 and duo sessions. The mark of improvement is incredible. He is knowledgeable and patient, which is very important for girls this age. He works with the gaps identified by the parents and team coaches as well as the opportunities that he feels is necessary from his training sessions. He has also made himself available for trainings during the season when time is lacking due to the team practices and games that are structured. We definitely recommend and support Coach Brad.

Coach Brad is exceptional. Very rarely do you get the right combo of nice and challenging. He makes my son want to try harder and has renewed his love of the sport in the middle of a pandemic.

Coach Brad has made my daughter start to love soccer again!!! He is keeping the training fun and engaging all at the same time. My daughter is looking forward to her training sessions.

Coach Brad is absolutely amazing! My 9 year old is having a blast working with him. He has a remarkable skill at getting kids to think outside the box and we've already noticed a huge improvement in our daughters skill level. Thank you Coach Brad!

This is our first experience with private soccer lessons and we have lucked out with Coach Brad. He is very patient with my daughter, and she has learned so much in the 4 sessions that she has had. He knows how to keep my daughter engaged the entire time and he has a great sense of humor that works well with kids! I am very impressed with how quickly my daughter is progressing with her soccer skills. We will definitely be booking more sessions soon!

Coach Brad has been very helpful with improving my son’s skills, working on both foot (dribbling and passing) and goalie skills. He’s very good at talking to my son and keeps him on task for the entire hour. Has definitely been a huge plus.

Great coach. Clearly knows what he’s talking about and gives great instruction in order to help you improve. Can’t speak highly enough of him.

Coach Brad was perfect for our son to work with, and we are really happy with the results. Brad posts quality feedback after each lesson, complete with "homework" for the next lesson. Our son was engaged and interested in learning more, which is always the goal! Thank you Brad!

Brad is very personable and made the session fun for my son, while still offering constructive advice and targeting goals for future sessions.

Coach Brad was great. Took the time to get to know the player. Explained everything they were working on and had patiences.

Coach Brad has been a great! I have boy/girl twins and he was able to coach both during lessons. My kids play with i9 Sports, but really needed some one-on-one instruction about technique and he has been very helpful covering many topics with the 4-lesson package. My kids learned many new skills to practice at home and they really enjoyed his enthusiasm for teaching soccer. He's been a lot of fun with the kids and I highly recommend him!

I booked four sessions with Coach Brad to help my son improving his finishing skills. After two sessions, my son already scored a goal following the techniques and advice he received from Coach Brad regarding the difference between just shooting, and finishing with finesse, control, and direction. I am looking forward to the next sessions! I would recommend coach Brad to anyone!

Coach Brad did a great job connecting with our son and get him to focus on the basics and developing his footwork. We cannot wait to see the progress our son makes as we continue to train with Brad.

Our first session was great! Brad took the time to get to know Sarah. He asked questions and got her to think about her game. He took her through some initial drills to better understand her abilities. He gave her homework and set some expectations for the next training. I am really looking forward to seeing Sarah’s game to the next level with Brad’s help.

My son is 10 years old and has been playing soccer since he was 4. Yet he hasn’t received the individual attention he needs to really improve his skills. I wish we would have found Coach Brad sooner so he had learned the right way of playing soccer from the beginning. He is very positive and encouraging and really understands where your child is coming from, which is so important for my son – to feel like he has someone who will listen and understand him instead of simply giving a bunch of commands. Coach Brad asks a lot of questions and is genuinely interested in getting to know your child, which is so wonderful to watch. My son has been quite resistant to his coaches and takes time to trust someone. But Coach Brad seemed to intuitively know how to make my son laugh and was very patient and upbeat with him. I really love how Coach Brad encouraged him to not be fearful of making mistakes and turn mistakes into something good. I could already see improvements during his first session. I highly recommend him and really look forward to more sessions with him.

Our 7-year-old daughter had her first training session with Brad yesterday, and it was a really great experience. Brad was accommodating and flexible to work around the weather, and he did a great job with her, teaching her several new techniques that really help her game. Brad is patient and knows how to capture her attention, encourage her and talk at her level. Great job all the way around and we will be signing up for many more sessions with Brad.

Coach Brad was very helpful and provided pointed directions on how to get my son’s playing technique more engaged and fun.
We will definitely get more sessions with him

Brad worked well with my son. He worked on some specific defending weaknesses that should have some immediate results as well as some broader soccer skills.

Coach Brad is absolutely awesome! He worked with my 10 year old and taught him so much in just 4 sessions. He gave my son invaluable tips and drills to practice to really up his game. He really knows his stuff and is a great communicator. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to improve their skills as a player.

Coach Brad does an amazing job at making the game fun while challenging our daughter to improve her skills. Thanks Coach Brad!!

High class coach and man. After one session already progressing my game with him.

We have been very happy with our experience with Coach Brad. Our son enjoys his training sessions and has definitely improved his soccer skills. I highly recommend!

Coach Brad is a great coach! He is extremely organized and prompt in both his sessions and emails. We appreciate the time he spends offering feedback after the sessions as well. The sessions have been excellent! He works right alongside our child and is able to quickly identify and teach skills that our child needs. He also gives work to practice on during the week to improve. We highly recommend Coach Brad!

We would highly recommend Coach Brad. He is a fantastic coach and our daughters have improved a lot since we started lessons with him. He does a great job maintaining a fun learning environment while still encouraging our kids to get out of their comfort zone and try new skills. I like how he focuses on basic stills and encourages our girls to master those skills by showing them how they apply and can be used in the game. He is always on time, great with communication and very knowledgeable. We couldn't be happier.

Couldn't ask for a better experience! Brad is obviously experienced with young kids. He made her laugh the whole time. The way he explained things made sense to her. She happily lasted through an hour in our Houston heat!

Great coach. My son had a lot of fun and got super motivated now after having a session with Brad. Brad is great in communicating and motivating. He also gave my son home work to practice during the week which sets a goal for my son to improve. Brad set races and practiced along with my son. I will continue to take sessions for my son with coach Brad.

Coach Brad was fantastic! My 8 year old son has only had one session but in that one session he made a connection with Coach Brad and renewed his love of soccer. Coach Brad's patience, enthusiasm, and knowledge were beyond expectations. Brad is a natural at coaching. We've already schedule more sessions with him knowing our son's knowledge and love of the game will continue to grow. I highly recommend him!!!

Coach Brad worked well with our son to improve his touch and ball control. He was a good communicator and kept us up to date when we had to reschedule due to weather. My son liked working with him and will plan to continue working with Brad next season.

Coach Brad is an excellent Coach. After one session with my 13 year old, I feel like he has opened his eyes up to playing the game a whole new way. My son is really excited to be able to use the mental and physical techniques that Coach Brad has given him to use during this next weeks practice and games. It was great to hear my son open up about the troubles he was having on his select team to Coach Brad. The advise Coach Brad gave my son to deal with the adversities he is facing was spot on. Coach Brad is a wonderful teacher who is very dedicated to the sport and teaching it to the kids at a reasonable rate. You can tell its not about the money, it's about passing on the knowledge he has gained throughout his career on to the next generation of soccer players. If your son or daughter would love to learn more about the game both from physical and mental side and have fun doing it, then Coach Brad is the Coach for you.
