I’m so happy we found Coach Jake! After just two sessions, my son has already learned so much, and continues to practice what he’s learned during the off times. My son appreciates Coach Jake’s effective coaching style. He pushes and encourages in a motivating way. He’s precise in helping grow my son’s techniques and fundamentals. Looking forward to many more sessions with Coach Jake!

Coach Jake V is an incredible coach. He is very patient, skilled, and motivational. I have learned a tremendous amount in the sessions thus far. I definitely feel better about my skills and look forward to continuing my training with Coach Jake V.

Absolutely fantastic session. Highly recommend Coach Jake.

Coach Jake is great with my nine year old twins. They have been playing in a little laxer group for a while, but have had huge strides in their skills, confidence and enjoyment of the game in just a few sessions with Coach Jake. He makes it fun for them but also has really worked on basic skills that they need to be able to enjoy playing the game. He is easy to communicate with, and I feel really lucky we found him!

Great Coach. He is knowledgeable and explains everything very well. My son was very happy with his first lesson.

Awesome first session, Jake’s knowledge and organization shows up fast in the conversation, along with his awareness and ability to access issues quick. Not surprising at all that USC grabbed him for the job.
