With their run in World Cup 2014, the U.S. National Team, which captivated the attention of the entire country, has helped soccer continue to grow as one of the most popular sports in America. Additionally, with the successes of recently retired Landon Donovan in the MLS cup, and Clint Dempsey of team USA, young soccer players have more US born role models than ever. Neither Dempsey, Donovan, or any of the most successful players in Europe have achieved success on the field on their own. Many of the best soccer stars got the most out of their training and workouts with focused skill work from trainers and coaches. CoachUp offers the easiest way to connect with thousands of soccer coaches across the nation who have either played collegiately or professionally.

Working with a soccer coach is the best way to get the most out of your training and improve on the technical parts of your game. If you are starting out for the first time, our coaches will teach you the rules of soccer, the different types of formations and strategies. They will also teach you how to dribble, pass and shoot. If you are more advanced and are trying to take your skills to the next level, we have coaches who specialize in specific positions such as striker, midfielder, defense and goalkeeper. These coaches will offer more advanced drills and workouts and even offer tips when you train on your own.

CoachUp features a number of prominent Major League Soccer players as coaches, including Houston Dynamo forward Chandler Hoffman and LA Galaxy midfielder Kenney Walker. Hoffman, who was two time Alabama Gatorade Player of the year, played for UCLA from 2009 to 2011 before he was drafted to the Philadelphia Union in 2012. He was a standout striker (https://www.coachup.com/coaches/chandlerh), scoring the game winning goal against the German Bundesliga team FC Schalke 04. Hoffman says he is eager to provide youngsters with the opportunity to train with a professional. Recent MLS champion, midfeilder (https://www.coachup.com/coaches/kenneyw) Kenney Walker, also loves to teach others about the game. Walker who was drafted in the second round in 2012, has become a standout on the field. Check out these elite soccer coaches and more and start training today.
