Good report with my daughter

(no details provided)

She was great, she was able to correct her form and make improvements in our first time with her. Coach Samara is a great addition to my daughters training and look forward to seeing her again.

Coach Samara is really good at motivating young athletes. Her techniques also very helpful.

Coach Samara is AWESOME. My 8-year-old daughter is discovering sprinting/track, and while she's one of the fastest kids in her school district (including boys!), it was clear from the get-go that she had a lot she could improve. Coach Samara was wonderful with her, had a clear plan, mixed in fun drills with intense learning. In an hour's time my daughter learned how to start, how to properly use her arms and stride, and how to start low and rise over the course of the sprint. We have a meet in April and plan to see Coach as often as we can1

Fantastic session. My girls had a great time!!

Good coach. She makes it fun while teaching important skills.

Great coach!! Samara listened to what we wanted to get out of the session and had lots of exercises lined up. She was very encouraging. My daughter worked hard during the session and had a great time. We would both definitely recommend Samara!

Samara has been an amazing coach to work with. She is professional yet extremely approachable and patient with younger players, and arrives to each session with a positive attitude. You can tell her students are excited for each session as she is always encouraging and acknowledges progress. I would definitely recommend Samara for any young player looking to improve their soccer skills!

I highly recommend Samara. This is my first time using Coach Up and I didn’t know what to expect. It was very easy booking and setting up a time/place to meet. When we got to the park, Samara had set up an agility area with cones, speed ladder, etc. I was very impressed.

Samara was excellent . She had my 8 yr old daughter practice some skills, obstacle and agility course .

My daughter was extremely happy with her lesson, she was happy, excited and felt she learned valuable tips.

I felt the two connected and will be booking more lessons!!

I enjoyed having Coach Samara working with the pre-school and after school children at my childcare setting. She was amazing in building up their confidence and self-esteem in such a short amount of time and the fruit is in her wonderful work because some of the children are now playing for football academies.
