Client Reviews

Coach Franco put on two strong sessions for my 11 year old son. The sessions were intense and designed to improve his technical skills. We look forward to working with him on future trips to Miami. Aside from the actual session, Coach Franco was flexible and easy to work with. He delivered 100%.

Coach Franco has been an amazing coach! I came for one week before a tryout, and I can see the differences just in days. He pushes you to always have a maximum effort mindset and the drills that he created were some that I have never seen before and it really helped me. I would definitely recommend coach Franco to anyone looking to get better at soccer.

I really thank you Coach! Working with you has been a pleasure and a good torture at the same time (the training is hard but very enjoyable). I look forward to the rest of the time I have in Miami knowing I'm in good hands.

Coach franco it's a great coach!. He very professional , i put my son to training with coach franco I'm very awesome he give to my son some technical, improve in very surprise ,I very recommend to coach franco!!@ he working hard...

After 3 training sessions with Coach Franco I can already feel the impact his coaching has had on my coordination, technique and speed. Not like many other coaches, he is very detailed oriented and focuses on improving hands to feet coordination. He teaches players to be aware of the surroundings and of their movements. He is very professional and pushes you to do you best in every drill and every repetition. I'm excited to see how Coach Franco will help me improve my skills and my game throughout the next sessions.

Ive had 2 practices with Coach Franco, by the second practice Ive seen a huge positive change in my coordination and funcional training/practice. He has a lot of experience, I definitely recommend training with him. He is a top Notch. I will continue to train with Coach Franco.

We were in Miami Beach for 3 days during Spring break. My daughter is a U12 pre-ECNL player who loves to train, even when we travel. We were very lucky to have found Coach Franco. He replied promptly to my request for a trainer. He is very professional and has a strong work ethic. He was able to evaluate my daughter’s skill level and tailor the training session accordingly. He focuses on technical skills with an emphasis on coordination. He was very attentive during the training session focusing on her form and technique, giving constructive criticism and positive feedback. There is no time wasted during the training session. Each session is well planned, building on the prior training. After each session, he would also give me feedback on her performance. My daughter wanted to train with him each day we were in Miami Beach, 3 mornings in a row. He is one of the best trainers we have had. I only wish we lived closer so he could train her regularly. Not only does he teach her how to be a better soccer player, he teaches her discipline, work ethic, and professionalism.

He did a great job evaluating my son for a professional try out Franco sees everything from speed to footwork to balance like I’ve never seen any other evaluator do so before. Afterwards he gives you a truthful synopsis about what you can do to improve yourself as a player.
The coaching is good, there is a lot of work with quick feet. It’s very good
Excellent training, it was a great practice. Coach Franco gave me a lot of tips for my game. I hope I can move to Miami to train more with him. Thank you Coach!
Training with Franco has given me an advantage over most players on the field . He has helped me understand that 75 % of soccer is muscle memory . Thanks to Franco I am quicker on my feet , faster on my sprint and more technical on the ball . I make less mistakes on the field and I am easily becoming one of the best players on my team. Thank you Franco.
Franco was amazing at improving my technique and agility. He focuses on perfecting the basics and quick movement which really helped my endurance and skill.
My son trained with coach Franco and we loved his practice. He works a lot on ball mastery and coordination, it is a well designed training. I highly recommend him, he is a great coach with a lot of experience.
Muchas gracias Franco, me encanto el entrenamiento, muy fuerte y muy técnico. Se nota que tus entrenamientos son planeados con mucha sabiduría y experiencia. Ojala pueda seguir entrenando con usted bastante antes que un equipo profesional lo contrate y se lo lleve :) Nunca cambie su forma de ser Franco!

I get luck to be a part of his team and learning a lot things the way I’m learning... professionalism, perfectionism, serious, very patient and hard with us but it’s the way have to be, because the good steal is made with hot and strong fire.

Coach Franco is an amazing person as a coach and as a person outside the field with such a nice personality. I have been training with him for couple weeks and I have learn a lot more skills. I feel more comfortable in the field now then before my touches have improved also he show me how to play my position better. He is the coach you need if you are looking to get better, coach Franco has a lot of years of professional experience so that even makes him know what he is doing when it comes to coaching he knows what you need to advance to the next level.
I met Coach Franco a couple of months ago, he is a great coach!! He helped me a lot to improve my soccer skills. He is very dedicated during the practice, he is excellent about tactics and technique, he made me boost my strength on the soccer pitch, my dribbling movement and speed, also made me believe on myself more. It’s a great pleasure to have him as coach and adviser.
Great coaching, discipline, and excellent learning both on and off the field. Thanks for all the help and progress. Adman A.
Franco Florio is an excellent Soccer Coach. I trained and played with the Team he is currently coaching, he has a lot of experience and he knows the Game. It is a pleasure to work with him.
Coach Franco is an excellent coach, person and professional when it comes to soccer. He is currently coaching our high level competition soccer team in which he manages 30+ players and also private sessions with some of them. Coach Franco goes far and beyond when it come to coaching. His professional experience transmits in every action from being organized with bags to warm ups to training. He is always early than scheduled, well prepared and coaching stations are setup prior to players arrivals. He has the ability to coach new comers to players which we have already send to professional teams. Highly recommended if your goal is to improve tactically, physically, mentally and in any aspect to make you a better soccer player or a better team. Miguel Romero President Miami Soccer Academy
My name is Rommel Hyppolite, I am a former student athlete and a St.Lucian Soccer Player, I played for Saint Lucia National Team. I’ve been training with coach Franco Florio for a few weeks now and I'm very impressed with his unique and high level training sessions..He pushes you to your limit while correcting your mistakes while being completely honest with you..He has informed me on what I need to work on to take my game to the next level
Franco Florio has been the BEST coach my son Dakota has had. Training with Franco, my son has learned lots about the game and has massively improved his skills and tactical knowledge; he’s shown very fast and solid improvements in every aspect of the game. Franco is always professional, always timely and always committed.
This is my review based on my first one and one training with Franco Florio. The training was very intense, straight forward, effect and mind blowing. Just in a couple minutes he opened my eyes to my weak areas that needs to strengthening. That being the result, I would continue training with him because I know results will be made. He is highly recommended by me. Brilliant coach he is.
During our son’s spring break, we wanted him to continue with his training. Through word of mouth we heard about a coach who trained in the Miami Beach area. We were fortunate to have found Coach Florio. Coach Florio was very responsive. He was willing to work with us and accommodated well within our schedule. First impressions; very professional, organized, and meticulous. He is well prepared and has a plan for each session. On our first session, he put our son through drills and was critical of technique and positioning which he could assess his strengths and weaknesses. We can attest that his session plans focus on coordination, but we would like to add that they also work on endurance. We were so pleased with the first session and saw how his training could be beneficial for him that we immediately set up additional sessions for the week. He tailored sessions to improving his coordination and endurance, while correcting technical deficiencies that easily get overlooked during his team training. Coach’s sessions are challenging and they pushed our son’s limits in a good way by forcing him to concentrate on technique, coordination, and trying to eliminate bad habits. He was continuously moving and was fatigued after each session, in a good way. If Coach Florio was closer we would have our son train with him regularly. This is not just a parent speaking, those were our son’s words as well. When in the area, we will definitely try to set up training sessions with a great coach.
