Each session catered to what the client wants and needs to improve on. I do an analysis and from there can determine best drills. Example: Fitness, speed, and a player’s natural touch on the ball are critical. A typical day would include but not limited to.
-Warm Up, Stretch, 5 minute film session of a professional players highlight tape and fitness drills.
-Passing and controlling the ball drills ( strong emphasis on first touch, the correct way to move when your off the ball to get open and position yourself best for your team) Give and Go pass excercise , long passes , control & pass drill 2 touches max, Learn to settle the ball down with head, chest & Knee)
-Shooting with and without a goalie, one on ones with defender, crossing then finishing, one touch finishing.
-Speed- suicide drills, 40 yard dashes . Quick movements through cones, accelerating with the ball under control and without the ball, long strides with your legs, anticipating mistakes and through balls
-Defending / Attacking, Headers, kickups ( I will see what the client and parent want and we focus on making the player the best at the position they’re playing while also giving advice on future positions if need be.

Coach Chris did a great job with my son! Chris has a great temperament and worked very well with my son. My son learned a lot and we're both looking forward to working with Chris in the future.

Christopher is Amazing ! My husband and I really loved how he was able to trained my 6 year old. My son was able to understand easily and executed what was being practice. We seen a big difference in just one day ! Most importantly my son loved practicing with him, and can’t wait to see him again for his next session !

I am very glad we found Coach Chris. He is working with both my son (11) and daughter (12) and after only three sessions, I can see a difference. Coach Chris is very organized and attacks each practice with a game plan that evolves from one practice to the next. He provides invaluable insight to the subtle nuances and puts players in game type situations with drills. He is very personable with the kids yet demanding in their play. Perhaps the highest compliment I can give him is that my kids both look forward to training with him. We will definitely continue training with him. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their game.

Coach Chris was great with our daughter! He showed her great techniques, and really pushed her to work on her hidden potential. Definitely continuing to work with him....

We had a first session with Coach Chris and it went great. My 10 year old boy loved the class and learned new skills while having fun. He was very easy to communicate. We are alreading booking our next session.

Coach Chris just started with my son, I can tell he is very good at what he does, im loving the type of drills he is making him do. Cant wait till we have at least 2 months of hard work to start seeing the results, really looking forward to seeing my son play soccer at a great level. Thank you coach.

Terrific coach that will help improve your game and take you to the next level.

Great Coach! He's very good with my son who is 14, and uses drills other coaches don't always do. He knows the sport well and gives the kids instructions that cater to the position they want to play and in a way they'll remember.
