More About Coach Chandler

I was Alabama Gatorade Player of the Year in 2008 and 2009. I finished my high school career with 121 goals. I played college soccer at UCLA between 2009 and 2011. I accepted a Generation Adidas contract and I was selected in the first round as the number 13 pick by the Philadelphia Union in the 2012 MLS Superdraft. I scored the game-winning goal against German Bundesliga team FC Schalke 04. I was traded to the LA Galaxy in March of 2013 and was a member of the 2014 MLS Cup winning team that included Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane. In 2015 I played for the Houston Dynamo. I am currently #9 for Birmingham Legion FC

I would have given anything to train with a professional when I was a young player and feel this is a great way to provide the opportunity to aspiring young players of all ages and ability.

I focus my sessions on growing the love of the game while instilling important techniques and knowledge. The sessions begin with a warm-up that involves different games that focus on ball-control and improving technical ability. We will then transition into passing patterns and different types of passing. This is followed by finishing drills which is my specialty. We will finish with a 1on1 small-sided game to allow the athlete to test their ability and what they have learned against a pro.

Coach Chandler is an outstanding soccer coach. He taught my 11 yo old son training drills utilized by professional soccer players. I enthusiastically recommend him to any parents seeking a private soccer coach for their child.

Chandler did an awesome job coaching me! After the first day of coaching I had already learned techniques I had no clue about, which helped me out a ton. He was also very friendly/dedicated and let me use his jacket when we were practicing in the rain!

My son trained with Coach Chandler one time and was really impressed. We will continue to look to Coach Chandler for additional training!

Chandler was awesome, he is very friendly and very professional. He started doing drills with my son right away. He taught him different strategies and drills to improve his game. I noticed a significant difference in my son's confidence after only one hour with Chandler. My son is looking forward to the next lesson. Bring water, you are going to need it, you will get your money's worth.

After one session, my son felt so comfortable with Coach Chandler. He's working even harder. He's looking foward to seeing him again n getting even better at it

My son had a couple excellent sessions with Chandler. Very personable and easy to talk to and understand. He focuses/works on your strengths and improves your weaknesses through drills and games. Excellent coach and player. Thanks again Chandler.

My 9 year old just trained with Chandler- awesome session. Highly recommend!!

You have David Beckham, Landon Donovan, and Chandler Hoffman. Three world class football players. So awesome to train with one of the best. Chandler walked me through real LA Galaxy practice fundamentals to get me moving faster! Thanks CH for helping me take my game to another level. You are #1!

Chandler has been amazing in working with my son to develop his ball handling skills, who has gone from playing sweeper to forward with Chandler's training. His confidence has increased, as well as his enjoyment of the game. I can't say enough about Chandler's patience and commitment to developing the players he trains. He's awesome!

He is patient, encouraging, and very specific.

Chandler not only has a great resume as a player and excellent soccer knowledge but also strong communication skills. He had an immediate positive impact on my daughter's technique and her confidence. It was time and money well invested!

Chandler is a very talented athlete who works well with young soccer players. Chandler went through several drills with our son and provided my husband and I feedback. Chandler is highly professional and we look forward to working with him.

Thank you for helping me work on my left foot. It felt more comfortable with the tips you gave me. I'm looking forward to the upcoming sessions and can't wait to get on the field. i needed a mentor. Thanks

As a parent, the experience my daughter had to train one/one with someone that plays at Chandler's level is irreplaceable. The training sessions were focused to encourage Blair's strengths and capitalize on those areas, especially inside the eighteen in finishing situations. Chandler was very creative in designing drills to help with her touches and receiving in unique situations which would be common in a game environment. These sessions were great confidence builders and could be seen in her play throughout the season. Our family feels very fortunate to have had the opportunity to train with such a talented individual and outstanding role model.
