Client Reviews

I cant say enough nice things about coach Paul. He was always early setting up for his sessions with my young daughter. He set up age appropriate drills for her considering she was younger than im sure most of his training sessions. They were challenging and very engaging. He gave great feedback during and after each workout and I was able to practice at home with her in-between each session. His knowledge and experience are amazing! My daughter was very excited to continue to go back and we cant wait to book some more sessions in the future!

My son had an hour session with Coach Paul. He tailored the coaching to my son's position, center back, and worked on my son's speed, agility, skill training, as well as tactical decision making. There was also a large, cerebral component to the training and Coach Paul was explaining to my son why and what and how. I recommend Coach Paul to anyone who is passionate about soccer and anyone who wants to improve his/her skills to the next level. Outstanding 1:1 coaching.

My sons started sessions with Coach Paul last February due to them not making their Middle School teams at tryouts. They had sessions twice a week with Coach Paul and within a month they improved their juggling and ball control. We was so impressed that we added another session two months before tryouts. Needless to say that both boys made the team and enjoyed a successful season playing MS. My family and I would highly recommend Coach Paul to help yours sons and daughter learn how to play the game.
