Client Reviews

14 year old daughter….building great skills.

Coach Max is a great coach. He evaluates my son's weakness and adjusted trainings accordingly. He also gave my son homework and training materials. My son already liked him after a single session and looks forward to the next session.

Coach Max is an outstanding coach. He is a very strong technical player who knows the training intensity expected for D-1 college players, and more importantly, he is a good teacher, breaking down the skills so that a more junior player gains confidence and makes progress. Overall, I think you will find that Max will challenge and help serious competitive club players who play on their club's top team.

For context, Max has been training my 13 year old son on how to be quicker on the ball and on how to use skills under pressure. Max has been professional and reliable. He utilizes creative drills and he participates in the drills, offering a measure of "pressure" to simulate a real game 1:1 situation. What I have been most impressed is that Max assessed my son's existing skills and worked to make current moves faster and more effective rather than introducing new skills. And my son is thrilled when he applies one of Max's techniques in his training or games to beat a defender.

Coach Maxwell , is very professional, he was very encouraging and my daughter had a great experience training with him. he gives good advice to players too.

Coach Maxwell was very patient and was very good in giving session instructions. My daughter enjoyed her sessions. Thank you, Coach Maxwell!

Maxwell was a very positive an encouraging coach for my 12 year old goalkeeper. He had some great drills ready to go an he obviously knows what he's doing. Great coach!

Excellent training session. Maxwell definitely knows how to Coach and get the best out of the players. I will definitely be scheduling more sessions in the future!

Our first experience with Coach Maxwell was great! Very structured, Lot of Variety, positive reinforcement during the sessions yo name a few, My 8 year old loved the session and we are looking forward to the next one...

Coach Max is awesome! He is clearly expert in all areas of soccer training. More important, my son liked and trusted him immediately. The session was fun and inspiring to watch. Highly recommended.

Coach Max was always on time and prepared! My son looked forward to their sessions. He helped improve my sons confidence.

My 6 year old son had his first session with coach Max, his training, techniques and patience were fantastic! He truly has the skill to teach and guide at all levels. My son really enjoyed him and felt accomplished in his first session. We will be returning for more sessions!

we love Coach Maxwell. he has a lot of patience and his methods are professional to get the right skills.

My very first session and it went great. Looking forward for more session with Coach Maxwell.

My son has been working with Coach Maxwell for a few months and they are beginning to hit their stride together, with a focus on what my son needs to work on. He always enjoys his sessions and likes Maxwell.

Maxwell is a very good coach - he showed me a lot of good techniques. I loved training with him!

Nowie had fun with you. Hope he will improve with your training.

Coach Max has been so helpful for my son. Not only is he helping with technique - passing, dribbling, shooting - but he gives my son feedback and tips which is helping build his confidence on and off the field. My son is so excited to continue working with Coach Max!

Maxwell has been training my daughter for the past few weeks. He has been punctual communicative and responsive. My girl says he is very encouraging, friendly and personable. He participates in the warm up him self, and she appreciates it. She feels that she has improved in the few lessons we have had with him. We are very happy we chose to work with Maxwell.

After our first session it was clear to me that Maxwell is focused, adaptive, skilled, knowledgable, and well trained. He has an eye for the kind of details that can make or break a player.

He started with a natural progression warmup and ended with a culmination of the techniques we covered. His energy never dwindled. He was prepared, scheduled, and systematic, leaving room for adjustments.

Impressed, I went home and booked 10 sessions. Maxwell is the real deal.

Max has thus far been a model coach for my son, 14, and his teammate, who have trained with Max together. Max has weaved in general skill training with position-specific development, and has included a strong emphasis on conditioning. He is specifically helping them prepare for High School Soccer, bringing his knowledge, experience and creativity to making them better. I highly recommend Max from what I've seen.

So far in two sessions I have learned more about playing soccer than I accumulated from years of playing without coaching. Coach Maxwell is able to focus on my weak spots and help improve my footwork and accuracy. He's very motivating and has a great way of teaching and keeping you on your toes. And his sessions are a great workout for me.

My boys have really enjoyed working with Max and are looking forward to more sessions.

Max is sensational. My son has had several training sessions with Max, and my son looks forward to it every week. Max does not sit on the sidelines and bark out commands. He actively trains with my son. This active participation motivates my son. He feels as though they are training / learning together. Max continually provides positive feedback in a calm, confident manner. Max is always on time, and he often trains beyond the scheduled time, if they're in the middle of a drill. He caters the session to my son's developmental stage, while ensuring the session is challenging. I strongly recommend Max.

My son has had a few sessions with Coach Max and the results are wonderful - today he learned the "rainbow" move, something he said his prior Club 1 coaches tried to teach for years, but didn't. His skills are really developing and we are thrilled!

Igwe was an excellent coach and my boy really connected with him. He would come back from each session very excited saying how much he learned and how much he liked Igwe. Would definitely recommend him to others and only wish he could be our coach in school!

Coach Maxwell clearly knows what he is doing. He immediately was able to evaluate my daughters soccer skills and develop drills to help her bring her game to the next level.
She really enjoys working with him.

Coach Max is phenomenal. Great sense and grasp of the game. He lives and breathes soccer
