Lauren has been fantastic with my 16 year old girl who plays high school as well as club soccer. I have really seen the progress made and versatility she has shown in her games since working with Lauren. I highly recommend Lauren as a coach as she has helped my daughter take her game to the next level.

My daughter (age 13) was looking for a coach to help her with speed and agility, and we found Coach Lauren on CoachUp. Coach Lauren has been great in developing a carefully structured regimen of training to be applied both at each training session and at home. Even though it's only been a few months, I can already see considerable improvement, and my daughter feels much more confident on the field. Plus, she looks forward to each session and greatly enjoys working with Coach Lauren. Thanks Coach Lauren!

Coach Lauren is great for getting good touches on the ball that will help you in the long term. I would recommend her to anyone needing to get better at technique and just get touches.

Coach Lauren did a fantastic job with my daughter. We did 5 sessions with her and by the end, you could really see the difference in how my daughter played in her matches. She was more confident, had better ball skills and overall became a standout player on her team. We are getting ready to sign up for another 5 sessions to get her ready for Fall season. I would highly recommend Coach Lauren. My daughter has really enjoyed working with her.

I’ve trained with Coach Lauren only a few sessions but I already view her as a fantastic coach. She knows how to best help you by breaking down drills that you're technically struggling with so you can learn it and do it correctly to improve your performance. She also recognizes your skill level and challenges you to develop further. One of the best things about Coach Lauren is that you can tell her what you would like to improve on and she will customize her training plan to it. She is very flexible when it comes to scheduling. At day of training she has a personalized plan set for you so you can get the most out of the time. I would recommend Coach Lauren. - KlyaD2021

I can't say enough good things about Coach Lauren. We are so grateful to have found her. My daughter works hard both mentally and physically at every session and enjoys it at the same time! Coach Lauren has even traveled to see my daughter's game to do an evaluation, her knowledge and input is priceless. We look forward to continuing our sessions and highly recommend her!

Absolutely superb-- my 11 year old daughter had a few skills she wanted to work on, and she found Lauren extremely personable and encouraging. She knew precisely which skill/drills would be most useful for my daughter-- highly recommended!

Lauren has been awesome! She can watch my daughter do a specific drill, see what exactly needs to be worked and modify the drill to address that need. She was quickly able to build a connection with my daughter and they both look like they are having fun! We will definitely be booking more sessions.

My daughter had her first session with Lauren and was really impressed by how she explained why she had her doing different drills and how it transfers to playing in a game. She really liked her.

Review is long overdue. Lauren was on time, prepared, knew her stuff, and was pleasantly interacting with my 10 year old daughter.

I'd recommend Lauren to anyone looking for a private coach.

My daughter was nervous and not sure what to expect from her first training with Coach Lauren. After the session, however, my daughter told me she had fun and wanted to train more with Coach Lauren in the future. My daughter has done a lot of technical trainings with her team but Coach Lauren was able to show her exercises she has never tried before. The whole experience was very positive.

Coach Lauren was great! Incredibly knowledgeable of the game from both a coach's and a player's perspective. She's able to watch you play or run and instantly know what minor adjustments would help you be that much quicker on the ball and faster off the ball. Listening to what my specific goals are she helped create a comprehensive plan for me to meet those goals and be the best player I can be today. Coach Lauren is skilled, friendly and incredibly easy to work with, I look forward to continuing our training!

I would definitely recommend Coach Lauren to anyone interested in enhancing their soccer performance. After just one session, I was excited to practice what I had learned and felt more confident on the soccer field.

Under her guidance, I have grown more comfortable with handling the ball and attempting new maneuvers. She is not only well-versed in a variety of soccer skills; she is also endowed with patience and a desire for players to understand the technical aspects of the game.

I look forward to working with Coach Lauren in the future.

Coach Lauren is providing one-on-one personal training for my 11 year old daughter. Coach Lauren has proven to be an invaluable part of my daughter's development and improvement. Coach is very intuitive as to the needs of her clients and prepares for each session accordingly. Her knowledge, competitiveness and patience has enable my daughter to grow, keep her interest level high and also look forward to training. We appreciate Coach Lauren's commitment to the process and can not recommend her highly enough.
I’m happy with the way everything has evolved this Fall. Julie has comfortably settled in to a starting midfield position on her new team. All her concerns about moving to a higher age group and competitive level are gone. She’s so busy playing and taking care of her field responsibilities that she doesn’t have time to worry about confidence, she’s just out there doing it. She’s been accepted by her teammates as one of the hardest workers on the team and she’s getting lots of support from everyone. I’m quite sure that your sessions and all the reps have helped her immensely…... In one game last weekend, Julie trapped a long goal kick dead still, she pushed the ball out in front of her, faked to the left and then pushed the ball to the right with the outside of her foot and raced around the first defender, finally making a pass upfield. This is something she didn’t do last season, and you can see a real soccer player beginning to emerge. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for all your knowledge and hard work.
It's clear that Lauren studies the game, has been around a high level of soccer and has good ideas about the game of soccer. Coach Nadler is great to work with, knowledgeable of the game and added balance to our staff. She has an arsenal of good training exercises that she can can call upon easily. Lauren can coach any idea or concept, sees the game clearly and can dissect it as well as give players clear ideas about what they need to be doing on the field.
