Played soccer in high school, never attended university, but have trained and played with amateur and professional players here in the U.S., UK and France.

I train my clients with developmentally appropriate exercises. An eight year old can not be trained like an eighteen year old.In turn, not all children of the same age are equal in their development, so I assess a player's developmental level and work to bring them to their next level of proficiency. I like to make it fun for the players while training them.Every session would be planned as such:
#1) Warm-up. #2) Demonstrate the exercise the player/players will be working on this session .#3) Have the player perform the exercise with no pressure at about 1/2 speed. #4)Have the player/players perform the exercise with slight pressure, same speed. #5)Have the player/players perform the exercise with pressure at 3/4 speed. #6) Full speed, full pressure. #7) Scrimmage if possible #8) Cool down.

Coach Dave is an absolute pleasure as a training coach. I believe his best quality is first and foremost making your child feel comfortable and giving them full confidence in their abilities and engaging them in motivation. He has wonderful experience on leading training for on field players and goalkeeping players. The videos that my wife shared really showed how well prepared and organized Coach Dave is with his training sessions. Highly recommend Coach Dave and can’t thank him for being such a great individual to the kids and sharing his passion for the sport of Soccer.

My daughter learned a lot at her first session.

I’d highly recommend Coach Dave. My soon to be 14 y/o son was a little apprehensive about one on one training, but he really enjoyed his session with Dave. His friendly, patient approach was well received & his feedback really helped my son’s confidence. Dave showed a genuine interest in my son’s development, which was very much appreciated.

Coach Dave was a great coach !!!! My son was inspire by his patience and experience, his training and techniques are great. i would recommend coach Dave to any parent that want their kids to train proper soccer.

Coach Dave was great! My 9 year old daughter learned so much in just one session with him. I would highly recommend him!

Coach Dave has a great attitude. Very positive and encouraging.

My son plays U13 in Barcelona ! He is a talented player who loves football as we call it in Europe. We were here for holidays and he wanted to get some specific training. We looked for a soccer coach on google and we found Dave via CoachUP. We had a 1H30 mn session with Coach Dave in Paramus, NJ. Everything was very well organized when we arrived. He is very friendly and very passionate about the game. We started the training with some routine warmup then had a very specific free kick training. My son was asking for more training with Dave but unfortunately we have to go back to Europe. I can only recommend anyone to train with Dave. New Jersey and New York are lucky to have him. We will be back next year Coach, see you soon.

Shows up on time and ready to work. He has been very responsive to my daughters individual needs and is flexible. Dave's philosophy of building on the last practice session is effective. He is also not afraid to stay on a skill until its mastered.

Working with coach Dave has been a pleasure. He is always on time and well prepare. My son loves to train with him, he is always learning new soccer tricks but has fun at the same time :) Dave its super professional and flexible

Coach Dave trained both my daughters and I saw immediate improvement in not only their skills but also in their love of soccer. They would constantly want to have a training session because " Coach Dave is fun!". Music to my ears.
Coach Dave is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated coach who has helped my children improve by leaps and bounds. He has always been honest and forthright with my wife and I and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a caring coach for their children.
