With their run in the 2014 World Cup, the U.S. National Team, which captivated the attention of the entire country, 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 development from their trainers. CoachUp offers the easiest way to train in soccer by matching athletes with coaches from across the nation, whom have either played collegiality 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-man and goalkeeper. Our soccer instructors will offer more advanced drills, personal attention and challenging workouts than your team coach is capable of doing, and will put you on a training plan for the work you do on your own outside of your 1-on-1 training sessions.

CoachUp features a number of prominent Major League Soccer players on our site as private coaches, including Houston Dynamo forward Chandler Hoffman and LA Galaxy midfielder Kenney Walker. Hoffman, who was a 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, 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, midfielder Kenney Walker also loves to teach young players about the game, and show them the drills, tips, and technique necessary to gain an edge on the field. Walker, who was drafted in the second round of the MLS Draft in 2012, has become a standout on the field.
