Coach David provided a very relaxed first training session for my 10 year old daughter. He clearly has a lot of experience and taught her things she had never realized. I learned as much from listening to Coach David as my daughter did. He gave each of the training balls a name and endowed them with a personality that supported the ideas and techniques he was teaching. My favorite anthropomorphic statement was "the ball never lies - it does exactly what your foot tells it to do". Coach David instantly can spot what is being done wrong and knows how to not only verbalize it, but can demonstrate exactly how it should be done, offering up tidbits of insight that may even contradict what you've heard other coaches teach.
Coach David is very nice. I like the way he accommodates me to fit in with my schedule. I definitely like that drills and skills that he has taught my son and would consider to schedule more sessions with him.
Coach David was great! He made the session really fun for my young son but at the same time taught him dribbling and shooting technics in just one session. He has a pure love and knowledge of the game and what it takes to get you to the next level and it's reflected in his sessions. I would highly recommend him!
After working with Coach David for 2 sessions I am able to see an improvement in my game. I started doing drills and exercises I have never done but were very important and beneficial. Coach David motivates me to do the drills during trying as well as on my own and reminds me to get them done. The devotion and knowledge that Coach David has made a big impact on me and I definitely recommend Coach to anyone (as long as they don't take up my time). I hope to continue working with Coach David to improve my game and skills. I think Coach David is a very experienced coach that can help improve anyones game at any level.
Thank you. My daughter had a great session with Coach David.
She learned more in that session than she had picked in years of travel team, premier
level and even ODP play.

Hope you're well mate.
Jack had his (Charity) game at STAMFORD BRIDGE today.
They won and he scored a Volley!! [ Coach David coached Jack in doing Full side Volleys, and he scored a goal on one! :^) ]

Although I already have quite some experience with soccer, in the three months I spent in New York, Coach David was able to teach me some more techniques, on how to kick a ball very hard and even a little trick - that has to do with the pointers on a clock - on how to give a perfect pass.... And he taught me how to kick a hard shot with the ball right in front of me, not on the side.
Especially for personal soccer development I would recommend taking a classes from this pro!

Coach David is such a great coach! I started practicing with him 2 months ago and the strides I've made are amazing. Before, I could hardly juggle and pass the ball correctly, not to mention I was incapable of heading the ball and dribbling.
Now I can! I did not expect to learn things in America about soccer, that I did not learn in France before.
He taught me a lot of skills and tactics that I now use during the games.
I would totally recommend David if you're looking for a nice coach to learn how to play good soccer fast.
It had been 10 years since I had played soccer and I was both nervous and intimidated. Coach David had me juggling, chipping and making cuts at my first practice as if no time had passed. With every practice and game I continue to learn and my skills as a player improve.
I was lucky to have great coaches in my early soccer days, and I now add Coach David to that list of great coaches.
