Who Am I and Why Should You Listen to Me?
Here is a little about me as a soccer player:
- 3 time all-state soccer player in the state of Florida
- Florida soccer player of the year
- High school All-American
- Collegiate All-American
- Former Professional Soccer player
More importantly I used to be just like you. My dream was to become a professional soccer player and be the best player on the field but I didn’t know how to actually improve my soccer skills and I was always just an average soccer player.
I went to practices all the time, joined a club team, and played year round and practiced as hard as I could.
But I never got any better than the other players on my team.
Eventually I realized that there must be a way that these great soccer players were improving their soccer skills that I wasn’t being taught by my soccer coaches. I started studying, researching, and talking to some of the best players and coaches in the country.
I trained with some of the best and
studied everything I could about soccer…
I spent time training with some of the best coaches in the world and my high school coach went on to be named the #1 coach in the USA in any sport.
My experience studying with top level coaches and trainers made me realize what I had always been missing in soccer practice. I learned why, no matter how many soccer practices I went to, I wasn’t getting better than anyone else.
I worked just as hard, if not harder, than anyone else in practice but I still remained an average soccer player. And because I was a small player the coach would rarely put me in because he was afraid I’d get hurt.
One day, my eyes were opened when I saw how professional players trained and began understanding how to truly become a highly skilled, game-changing player.
I then spent thousands of hours developing my skills and always searching for new training methods that would take my playing to the top.
And it worked when I was recruited to play professional soccer before I was even out of college.
Here’s where YOU come in…
In 2003, my college team asked me to hold a special training camp so that I could teach them the skills and training methods that I was using. Many of them didn’t have the skills, control, touch, power, and moves that they wanted…
And of course they wanted to be great players and saw how I was able to take over games when I needed to…
What these players needed was a different approach to soccer training…one that wasn’t being taught in traditional soccer practices but that would help to skyrocket their individual skills quickly.
How is this training different?
The soccer training methods I was teaching actually helped several other players reach All-American status and a couple others received honorable mentions. And it was all after they had gone through my training program.
The thing I realized about training after watching the pros and working with high level coaches was that traditional soccer practices were NOT the correct way to become a great player.
Traditional soccer practices are meant for “team building” much more than developing your own skills.
So I developed a training method designed specifically for skyrocketing a player’s individual skills. Here’s what I did:
- First, I created training sessions that simulated game speed and conditions so that the skills you practice are easy to apply when it is game time.
- Next, I developed highly effective drills that are specifically designed to quickly improve individual soccer skills such as ball control, touch, dribbling skills, passing skills, shooting power and precision, and even soccer I.Q.
- And finally, I made sure that every player that went through my program would be the most skilled player on the field…every time…by teaching a plethora of advanced soccer moves that are guaranteed to keep the defender guessing and on their heels.
It’s all about “Dynamic Touches”
Here’s a quick question for you: What was the soccer skill that Wayne Rooney said was THE most important part of being a great player?
Answer: He said, “touch”, was the key aspect of being a great player and even more specifically your “first touch”.
The Epic Soccer Training system actually uses drills and exercises that are designed to drastically improve your touch. And while a lot of soccer drills teach you slow movements, I found that “dynamic touches” where you are moving at a fast pace is much more effective in developing your skills.
You can actually get thousands of more effective touches in just a fraction of the time with this training program.
So you get better…faster!
