Start with dynamic agility or a little fitness work, then move into ball work, dribbling, passing, first touch, positioning, turns, and shooting.
Mostly, work on developing technique with the ball and comfortability with the ball. I work on shooting and shooting form/technique the second half of the session, as well as different 1v1 variations.
We will work on different forms of shooting including volleys, one-touch finishes, finesse finishes, and finishes from crosses, among many more! I like my kids to have a lot of fun and work hard!

Great session! David challenged my son right from the start and by the end, I saw him executing the drills at a higher level. He had fun and can’t wait to work with David again!

David was great! Even as an adult, he helped me a lot with my skills, and put me on the right track towards improving my basics. He broke down what I needed to work on, and provided good feedback on what I could do to improve those areas. I'm finding that his advice is really changing how I train in the future. As for the session itself, David does a great job targeting a range of soccer skills from first touch drills, passing, fitness/sprinting, dribbling, and shooting. He has a focus on soccer fundamentals, which I found particularly beneficial.

My son has really benefitted from one on one sessions with coach David. He makes my son work hard during the session, but he still enjoys it. I feel my son is slowing improving his confidence with these sessions.

David is great! My daughter was working with multiple coaches and she chose to work exclusively with David because of his way of working on skills while still making it fun. Overall great experience! She will continue to train with Coach David as long as she can.

Very friendly and helpful and understood what my son needed and drilled him appropriately. Really paid attention to his technique and encouraged him

Coach David is an awesome coach! He immediately built a rapport with our 8 year old daughter who is looking to improve her skill level for a competitive team that she plays for. He gives clear directions and feedback and makes practices very fun (daughter's words :) ). Our daughter has already had 5 1:1 sessions with him so far and is looking forward to many more. We highly recommend Coach David, as he is very knowledgeable and fun to work with!

Coach David is a great coach! My child had his first session with him and truly enjoyed it. The session was well-organized, well-paced, very engaging, and offered a great balance between skill training and fun. We look forward to our next session with Coach David!

Great coach! Clear instructions. Very knowledgeable. My daughter learned a lot from only one session. Looking forward to our next session.

Coach David is an excellent coach. He builds a very good rapport with his students right from the start, and he is excellent at connecting with kids. From a coaching perspective, he knows the game and what it takes to succeed. His sessions build from the basics to more advanced concepts and he is very effective at building his drills to incorporate the concepts that were previously intorduced, especially with older players. As a smaller player himself, he is especially helpful to those players who are on the smaller side, as he is aware of the challenges such players face. I would definitely recommend Coach David and will be booking more sessions with him.

David is great! Very attentive and helpful. Will continue to work with David!

We are very happy with Coach David's 1 on 1 sessions thus far. He spent some time to talk our soccer background and positions my son plays and then did some assessment of skill before getting into drills. You can't beat 1 on 1 training when it comes to learning and improving, so we're very pleased with his training.

My son really enjoyed session with David. I can definitely recommend David to people who need to work on their technical skills.

Great session my kids learned a lot

David has been a great coach for our son. He has been very effective in improving our son's technique and in doing so has improved his self confidence! I would highly recommend him.

Coach David is very patient and works well with my 8-year old son. We were looking for additional training to supplement his training on a competitive team and it has been great. The technical work includes agility training and footwork, as well as passing and shooting drills. We would definitely recommend David to anyone.

David has been an excellent coach for our son. He is personable, energetic and extremely passionate about coaching. Our son says he's "super fun and loves practicing with him!"

Excellent, patient, prepared

David is great at teaching all aspects of the game. His sessions are high energy and hard work which is exactly what every top player needs to improve.
