I start with a warm up and I finish with a cool down but I specifically focus on their technical and physical side. First touch, aerial control, footwork, passing, shooting, heading, defending and conditioning. I work on the player's weaknesses and make their strengths even stronger to make them become the best player on the soccer field!

Great coach

Coach Matthew was great! Defanitly worth a hours worth of work! I highly reccomend him and his style of coaching for anyone looking to better themselves.

Matthew is a great coach. His qualifications, certifications and experience in the game will only make you a better player. Trained for one session and will go for more. Definitely recommend.

My 9 year old son had a great session with Coach Matthew and can't wait for the next one. Greatful for his flexibility and willingness to travel which helps tremendously during the week.

Highly recommend!

Coach Matthew was great. We are planning to work more with Matthew but need to first figure out our schedules. We will be contacting Matthew to schedule more sessions throughout the summer. But Matthew was fantastic!

Coach Matthew was ready to go when we arrived and very accommodating. He did great job assessing and working drills to help with accuracy and foot skills.

Hands down Coach Matthew was excellent! He is a top rate professional. Coach Matthew immediately began to work with my 14yr old daughter on her identified weakness. He utilized radar technology to clock her shooting power in both legs as well as speed working through various ball drills. She was able to see for herself improvements throughout her first session. My daughter cannot wait for another training session with Coach Matthew.

Matthew saw my weaknesses and had me work hard to improve them. I can't wait to hire him for another session. He also helped improve my strength. Thanks so much Matthew!

As I am an adult getting back into soccer, Matthew was really helpful in addressing my specific goals for the session. He also used technology to take running and shooting measurements for progress tracking. Definitely recommend!

Coach Matthew did a wonderful job with my 16 year old. Over the five sessions, he was especially great at recognizing areas needing development and working hard to improve those areas (especially shooting and dribbling). My son really enjoyed his sessions, he felt great about his progression in skillset and in his renewed confidence in his game. We would highly recommend coach Matthew and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Coach Matthew has great chemistry with kids. He is very knowledgeable about the sport and how to pass is knowledge on. I highly recommend Matthew.

Our 16 year old son needed a little work on some of his defense skills, and Coach Matthew packed a lot into the first hour session. We highly recommend him!

First experience was great. My son did new drills and foot work. Matthew is able to relate my son in a positive learning method. He is looking forward to his next lesson. As a parent, I look forward as my son improves for himself and as a team player under the instructions of Matthew.

Great first session with Matthew. He was already set up and ready when we arrived. He had my daughter do several drills so that he could assess areas in which she should focus on for improvement. Great feedback and suggestions.

The session was great for our 7year-old! Mathew was patient and supportive, getting our son to perform new drills and practice different techniques. Also, Mathew gave us some very helpful tips for practicing at home. Definitely worth it!!

We arrived 10 minutes early for our session and Matthew was already set up and ready to go. He worked with my son for a full hour, taking quick breaks, but really using the full amount of time to work with my son on the requested areas. Great job Matthew!

I have had several personal coaches for my son and Mathew is the best. He combines great fundamental knowledge of technical skills and a talent for teaching them. I was wowed by the adjustments he coached to my son's kicking and the dramatic, almost instant improvement as my son sank a ball into the corner of the net over Mathew's outstretched hands. His coaching of strength and conditioning is exceptional and an important ingredient in athletic development. He gets it.

I am very pleased so far with the training my son is receiving. Matthew has been great with my son and has been very accomodating with the scheduling of sessions.

It was such a great pleasure to watch Matthew work and spend time with, not only is Matthew a top football coach but he is also one of the finest people I have had the opportunity to have worked with over the years.
