Client Reviews

Coach Ian is a stellar teacher and coach. He has been breaking down the game within the game and that has been so helpful with my son’s development and learning. We are booking more sessions to keep this going.

My daughter felt very comfortable with Coach Ian. He addressed skills that apply to her defensive position that she can improve on. Ian was easy to reach and flexible when we needed to change training sites last minute.

Great coach! Taught me a lot and I would get more lessons from him.

My thirteen year old son, who plays travel soccer, had three sessions with Ian so far and was extremely enthusiastic. We definitely plan to arrange more sessions with Ian.

Coach Ian was a great coach! My son learned more from him in one lesson then in 3 weeks of Jr. high soccer camp. He is very patient, kind, and positive. He has a wealth of soccer knowledge and I can't wait to work with him more to see how well my son progresses. I would recommend him 110%.

Alex enjoyed working with you and is looking forward to next session!
