Rly great practice!!

Our experience with coach Neil has been an excellent in... flexible on schedule has been great, but the best part of our experience is how much our 15 year old likes his articulate explanations and teaching methods.. emily my daughter is living the experience...

Coach Neil absolutely met and exceeded each and every expectation my son and I had. He is knowledgeable, involved, flexible, encouraging and I absolutely plan on using him each time we are in Los Angeles. My son was thrilled to be receiving one on one guidance as to how he can improve his game.
Do not hesitate to book Coach Neil!

Our 9 yr old son recently had his first session with Coach Neil. It was a very good lesson. He is patient and really understands how to instruct in order to develop a specific skill. We look forward to the next session.

My 9 year old son LOVED Coach Neil. He really connected with him and insisted on training with him in the future. Coach Neil did a great job running drills and explaining things in a positive way - which, due to my son's personality, is just what he needed. We are signing up for more lessons!

Coach Neil was great. My son, Cole, really connected with him & he can't wait until his next session. So glad we picked him.

Great first session & he connected well with my son!

Good first session. Quickly engaged with my son and kept him involved with the drills.

Excellent coach. Knows the game and ran smart training for my son.

My 9 year old daughter had a great first session with Coach Neil.

He was really good at explaining how his drills were applicable to game situations which made her understand why she was having to do them.

Liked the session so much that I immediately booked another session.

Coach Neil has been very helpful, and he is patient. He focuses on soccer fundamentals, and my children really enjoy his lessons. I can already see improvement in their ball skills.

Had a great first session with Coach Neil! He gave feedback/tips on how to do a drill/exercise better in a way that was understandable for Andrew. Andrew enjoyed working with him and look forward to more sessions.

Our 9 year old is already very skilled and captain of his club team, but we were looking for someone to help him continue to improve and bring his individual skills to the next level. It was quickly apparent from our son's first session with Coach Neil that we had found the right coach, in fact we already grabbed a full 10 session package to keep the training going. Coach Neil was able to adjust his approach right away to get everything focused in on where our son needed it, which is not always easy to do right out of the gate. He is already looking forward to the next session and putting what he is learning to work during this season!

Very patient and my daughter enjoyed her lesson, I highly recommend couch Neil! Thank you couch Neil!

Coach Neil was great. He is very patient and he’s way of teaching was very helpful with all the skill and technics he brings. I highly recommend him!

Coach Neil is highly professional and superb! His training seem to be very targeted and helps improve areas that are deficient. Also gets along well with my kid which is really great to see!

Coach Neil is fantastic! Our 9 year old daughter wanted to improve her overall goalkeeping skills. She has loved every session with him and has asked for more. She loves that he is patient, helps breakdown things and gives her clear explanations. In just a few sessions she is moving better and her goal kicks so much stronger. Thank you Coach Neil and we look forward to more!

Coach Neil was great! He gave the girls a solid work out.

Our WVSL team of 8 year old boys really liked Coach Neil. He has a great energy and enthusiasm about him, so that the boys naturally listened to his instructions. It is not easy to coach a team of goofy 8 year old boys who are all friends and like to fool around. We look forward to working with him in the future and growing as a team.

Coach Neil deserves more stars. Right from the start he took my 8 year old and was more then a coach. He treated him like he was his older brother helping him improve in his position. Coach Neil was like a mentor for my son. Professional doesn’t describe the experience we had. When asked if he liked the training, my son replied with the biggest yes and smile. We will definitely be requesting more sessions with Coach Neil.

Neil was fantastic with my ten year old. My son wants to improve his handling of the ball -- specifically shooting. Neil started off with basic footwork skills and worked up to actual shooting, breaking it down for my son with encouragement and corrections. I saw definite improvement in one lesson and my son commented on how he learned things about shooting his prior coaches really didn't have time to break down. We've already scheduled the next session and plan for many more.

Coach Neil was great. My daughter is looking forward to her next session with him. He is patient and great coach.

Coach Neil is fantastic! Recommend him highly. Our son is 11 years old, plays on a club team & is very determined to get to a high level. Coach Neil has a great demeanor - he quickly established a working relationship and did a wonderful job connecting with our son on areas to improve. Before the session, my husband briefed Coach Neil on our son’s needs & he came prepared with a game plan. Lots of drills that really tested our son & was not stuff he normally does on his club team. Lots of pro tips - Coach Neil really knows his stuff! Our son had a good time, learned a lot and is looking forward to his next sessions!

Coach Neil was a great coach. We liked his training style and his techniques are different than what we have seen before. Our 8year old loved it. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was looking for a personal trainer for my twelve-year-old son who's in a club playing in a competitive league in SoCal. I found Coach Neil on Coach Up, then decided to get him for three sessions after reading the positive reviews on this site. I wasn't disappointed on the first meeting, and the second meeting proved we got our money's worth. Coach Neil taught my son the tactical and technical aspects of soccer. More so, he motivated and encouraged my son to be confident with his skills, which is for me what my son needs the most--improving the psychological aspect of his game. Coach Neil improved my son's dribbling, passing/receiving, first touch, and shooting, just to name a few. My son couldn't wait to apply in the regular games the soccer-knowledge that he learned from Coach Neil. Highly recommended.

My daughter is 15 and is a goalie at the varsity level. She’s had her share of trainers so she knows right away if the training is “generic” or specialized. Within the first 2 minutes of meeting Coach Neil he got a pretty good read on her strengths and weaknesses. He asked a few questions and made sure she explained what she needed to improve upon. Although this was our first session, I’ll say there was nothing “generic’’ about his training. He brought a lot of equipment and was very prepared with some pretty challenging drills. I’m confident that the next session will be mixed with some new drills and drills they already worked on.

Coach Neil is awesome. Watched him work with my son today. My son is a club player, playing at a pretty high level. Neil immediately identified areas to work on and, within the course of the session, helped him achieve immediate results. Of course, it will take time to see those results applied on a regular basis, so looks like we'll be training with Coach Neil for quite some time. :) Highly recommend.

Neil is a great coach - I have 8 year olds and he has the right combo of relating to them in a positive way while still getting them to learn, follow directions and do some difficult soccer drills. We will continued having the kids work with him for sure.

Best training session I have ever completed. Coach Neil customized a plan according to what we discussed beforehand. He pushed me to bring out my potential and after a few minutes we were on the same wave length,in relation to my targets/goals. I will definitely continue to work with Neil. I can’t wait for the next one. A*

Couldn’t recommend Coach Neil enough. An excellent, dynamic coach, with incredible technical knowledge. My daughter learned so much and improved noticeably even after just one session.

Both my son and daughter have worked with Coach Neil. Well worth the money. I just wish he could coach their club teams too.
Coach Neil is AMAZING!!!. If you are looking for private coaching or small group sessions, look no further.
Coach Neil has been coaching my son for over a year now. My son started as a fringe player for his club team and is now top scorer and team captain. I can't thank Neil enough. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for 1to1 training. By far, the best coach I have seen.
Thank you so much for everything Coach Neil. You have been working with my two boys (aged 6&8) for over a year now and they have improved immensely. My older son is now playing club level and is the top goal scorer on his team! You have taught him so much :D
