Julia is a very knowledgeable and talented coach. My daughter is 17 years old, and plays High School soccer. She really enjoyed her sessions with Julia, and she learned a lot from her. As a busy parent, I was impressed with Julia's promptness and attention to detail. I was also impressed with her work ethic and patience with my daughter. We were both sad that her sessions with Julia had to end, because Coach Julia had to leave town to join her soccer team. We will definitely use Julia again.
It's with great confidence that I can recommend Coach Julia as someone who, I truly believe, possesses the character, skills, and knowledge needed to train and motivate young soccer players.
I was lucky enough to experience Julia training a group of our kids, as well as one-on-one with my daughter, and it was just amazing to see how well she connects with each one of the players either in a group environment, or private. Some of the girls, as typical kids do, would lose focus in our regular training sessions, but when Julia led the team – all eyes were on her! The ability to communicate and connect with each player, at all different levels, and keep their focus, was a pleasure to see.
Julias ability to teach the technical skills and clearly communicate them is a trait that is very difficult to find. The kids just seemed to understand her way of teaching, as if she just made it so much easier for them. Her positive attitude and smile was almost infectious, and you can feel her passion for the game. There is no doubt a connection and bond that is almost automatic with Julia, when you are driving home and your daughter asks, “when is my next Julia training session?” – its pretty obvious.
Julia has been coaching our 12 year old for 2 years. She is a gifted coach who runs efficient lessons. Her lessons combine time spent on warming up/stretching, foot skills, control and power. Our son has learned so much from Julia and absolutely loves his time with her. She also uses her time to motivate the children she is working with and our son always comes home ready to train ever harder to achieve his goals. We feel so lucky that we have been able to arrange lessons with Julia and we can not recommend her enough!
Julia’s a great coach that excels at teaching youth soccer. She’s capable of breaking down complex tactical and technical concepts in a manner that’s easy to understand. She developed a customized plan for my daughters based on their individual needs. Most importantly she was able to really connect with my girls. She brings a positive attitude and mentality to each session. The girls worked hard but looked forward to each practice. She inspired them to bring their best to each session and is a great role model for young children/women. She still checks in on them to see how they’re doing. My daughters can’t wait for her to come back north so that they work with her again. “
