Coach Melvin is a first class football trainer. He does not waste one second of the hour time frame with you son. pro style drills and great focus on proper fundamentals.

Coach Melvin had great tips and technique suggestions that my son will be applying on the field this week.

Coach Melvin was on time, personable, and brought sports equipment to use. My son had an enjoyable hour with him and learned helpful football skills. We hope to set up another session with him soon.

After extensive research, we chose Coach Melvin to help prepare our 12-year-old son for football tryouts at a new school. We made an excellent decision, and cannot say enough about Coach Melvin. After the first session, our son said he learned more in one hour than in his past two football seasons combined. He loved it so much, that he begged for the next sessions to last two hours each! Coach Melvin is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, and encouraging to our son. If your son loves football, is committed to hard work, and receptive to learning, Coach Melvin will most definitely be able to take your son to the next level.

Coach Melvin was a great coach. A professional with great experience and great rapport with my son. My son really enjoyed his session with Coach Melvin and is looking forward to the next session. Highly recommend Coach Melvin!

Coach Melvin brings experience that provides both the skills and maintains the interest of my two boys age 8 and 10 years old. After multiple sessions I am seeing results on multiple levels.
