He thought it was great! He liked that you were showing/working with him how to "prepare the ball" before the shot and working on placement. No one else has ever worked with him on those things in travel/club soccer. He really enjoys the time you take to show and help him become a better player. It is greatly appreciated from both him and my wife and I. I hope we can work something out to help Luke continue to grow and develop as a player.

Mitchell is really enjoying your training sessions and is looking forward to tomorrow night. He has been showing us some new skills that you have introduced to him. Great to see what he has picked up from just two sessions with you!

Stephanie

My son Leon attended the finishing school this past Saturday at Lanco. It has been a while since he came home some joyous about soccer!

James
The Finishing School

Great session. He loved it. Hoping I can adjust our schedule to have him there again next week. Thanks for the outstanding job with all the boys. All of the guys I coached loved it.

Josh
The Finishing School

I am Tom and Kolachi's mom. Both had very nice things to say and liked it very much. I can't tell you anything specific but I can say that they would do it again. We have a good handful of younger players in the 11 to 13 age bracket that wanted to do this session.

Kim
The Finishing School

I wanted to say thank you for inviting me to your session yesterday. I really enjoyed your training and drills. I learned a lot and hope to keep improving my game. Please let me know of any future training sessions that are available. It would be a privilege to attend.

Justin
Team Training Program

I would like to thank you for sharing your coaching talents with our boys this year. Joe has developed a much deeper understanding of soccer and the skills involved in playing the game. He has developed a greater enjoyment for the game and an eagerness to play. Before Joe joined Elco United about two years ago, he played "rec" soccer through childhood, where any parent willing to coach was happily appointed. He grew up playing soccer, but he never seemed to improve his skills. So, when he became part of Elco United, he did not know much about position playing and passing.
Thank you for appreciating the ability Joe has and for teaching him how to develop and use it. Joe told me at the beginning of the season that no one had ever taught him to pass properly, etc., since he missed out on this with his childhood teams, and he was grateful you took the time to do it in a manner where he would not appear foolish.
Joe is hoping you might offer some YPT clinics or something similar so that he will have an opportunity to work with you again. It is our hope that he will continue to learn and grow as a player. Thank you again for your role in helping him on this path during the season.

It was a pleasure meeting you and having you train the boys this week. In my reflection with our seniors, I still heard from them about the simplicity of your training, yet the complexity of it was humbling. In fact, every warm up from that day forward - the players started with two touch passing and juggling without any of the coaching staff having to request it!

Todd, Head Coach

The Finishing School

Juston had nothing but glaring and positive comments on the training. Please add me to your email list for future sessions. If you have an extended session in Lancaster, we would consider attending if his academy schedule permits.

Scott
Private Training

We have appreciated the interest, time and effort you have invested in bringing out the best in Aidan's skills across domains, and look forward to your continued work with him!

Hugh
Private Training

Thank you for letting us know about the training. It was well worth the drive. The boys really enjoyed the training and they are looking forward to the next one. I liked that you paid close attention to detail and corrected technical errors when necessary. I liked the small group training setting as well where the boys were able to maximize their touches on the ball. The boys said they loved the technical aspect of the training.

Derrick
Private Training

Every time we get in the car after training, Ben says how much he likes and enjoys the training. He finds it very beneficial.

Cory
Private Training

He wants to try and make your training session because he has benefited from it more than other training he has had to this point. So, yes we will make every effort to be there.

Joel
The Finishing School

He would be interested in coming again.
I was glad to see that it was a well run session- not a fly by the seat of your pants or too large a group to get some individual focus. I also have 16 YO twins that could benefit from YPT finishing school training and I think is of a level suitable.

Gail
Private Training

The more time with your training the more he gets out of it. He acknowledges that the club practice is more tactical and not technical. Often he reminds me of the reference points you had taught and how many are not aware of what or how to do things. Saying this more to qualify the resonance of the learned lessons from you. Don't need to pat you on the back but knowing that your instruction takes root is important. On a similar note as an example - during shooting practices at club - with everyone blasting the ball at the net - Francis would focus on trying to place it. Your instruction tends to give him the tools to assess what is the best shot and why - vs - just physical blasts at the net.

Charles
The Finishing School

He really likes training with you and has the utmost respect for you and your coaching.

The Finishing School

What was appealing was the focus on technical footwork in game-type situations. I have seen so many kids “think” they know how to do a Cruyff, etc. but are not properly executing with correct feet, touches after, acceleration, etc. There just never seems to be the time in the limited club training sessions to focus on these fundamentals individually or as a group...tactics, tactics, tactics…possession, possession, possession. Possession and tactics come much easier when players can command the ball at their feet. Also, he is so focused on going “fast” that he lacks the feinting portion of moves that would allow him to cleanly beat defenders and also “seem” faster giving himself more space. This was evident in his level of frustration shown at the session with rather “routine” exercises. I would like to bring Robert back as I feel he could really benefit from these types of sessions.

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule and making this happen. I know that you traveled a long way and due to the small number of kids you did not make any money on this. John really enjoyed his session with you. He said that you worked on a lot of things that he knew and the session helped him get better at those things. He thought you had a great demeanor as a coach. You coached them but also made the session fun. He asked me five minutes after the session ended when he could train with you again. That tells me that he felt it was productive because he is very honest with me and straight to the point.

Jim
First Team Training Program

Your training is really good and professional. It makes a good player even better and I would love to continue with it becuase it encourages and strengthens me more. Your training is a main reason that I want to be part of the team. I was at tryouts and preseason with Bethlehem steel of the USL for few months and I can say their training was more physical but yours is more technical and with the ball. This is the type of training that made world class players such as Neymar, Messi because they are not as physical but know exactly what to do with the ball. Thanks for evrything Coach! Hopefully I get to play for you someday or against you.

Remy
First Team Training Program

Thanks again for having me out to practice. I think I can learn a lot from you and I like your style of play/coaching.

Micah
The Finishing School

It is an hour and a half drive for us. Tyler enjoyed the session and I believe it is worth the drive. He has never had the opportunity to train with that caliber of players like that. All those guys are very talented. He liked you also and the way you communicate. I thought the session was very good for him. See you next week, maybe we will bring a friend also.

Rick
Academy Sessions Porgam

Justin very much enjoyed the session on Saturday. You have made quite an impression on him. He is looking forward to your upcoming sessions. Thank you again for taking the time to make a difference for these kids.

Terry
Academy Sessions Porgam

Definitely an awesome session I wish I had come out sooner. Like I said before, I defintely want to keep playing but it is tough to find consistent training. If there is anything you know of in the Boston area any help would be appreciated. I would like to pursue a professional career.

Chase
Academy Sessions Porgam

It was awesome having you out!! The kids enjoyed it. My younger son said this past Friday, unprompted, "I wish Coach John could come again". Thanks again.

Martin
The Finishing School

I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to the last session tonight, I’m getting sick and needed some rest. But I just wanted to take this time to thank you for your help throughout these sessions. I hope we can stay in touch so I can attend more of your camps because I really enjoyed them.

Danny
Academy Sessions Porgam

Thank you John for all your hard work. I think Hunter improved greatly under your guidance.
