Tony (CoachUp client)

    

He is a really good coach to work with. He is fun and unique and his coaching style is like nothing you’ll ever see. He will help you figure out your errors and overall make you better.

Jennifer (CoachUp client)

    

Stephen took great care with my daughter working on her basic soccer skills. After only a 30minute session she was able to kick the ball accurately with Stephen throwing the ball to her. I know that Stephen works with a lot of high level players, but he was really able to connect with my daughter. We will work with him again for sure!

Cameron (CoachUp client)

    

We had our 1st session with Coach Stephen this week. WOW! My 9 yr old daughter loved it. He worked her hard, gave her lots of great instruction, and really took the time to figure her out. She came home wanting to practice all the drills – the living room furniture was moved to accommodate 🙂 Coach Stephen was a great communicator as well – getting back to me very quickly. We will for sure continue on!

Nick (CoachUp client)

    

Can’t recommend coach Stephen enough. My son has had numerous goalkeeper coaches and attended many camps in the past. Stephen has been the best thus far. He was able to pack more training in one private session then some of the day long long camps my son has been too. Stephen goes into great detail and teaches not just how to do something but also the why. He is also able to push my son physically and mentally with the right amount encouragement. Stephen reviewed everything at the end of the session to make sure the retention was there. We will definitely continue training with Stephen.

Elizabeth (CoachUp client)

    

Coach Stephen is a great GK coach. He gave my daughter a lot of great tips, and sent her videos to watch afterwards showing the techniques. He has a tremendous amount of energy and worked hard through the whole session! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

Justin (CoachUp client)

    

Coach Stephen did a great job with my 9 year old. just the right touch for his personality, and good hard work out. gave us a lot to work on, and a great platform for further improvements.

Lydia (CoachUp client)

    

Coach Stephen was a great catalyst for my son’s work ethic towards goalkeeping. From the beginning to the end of the session, Coach Stephen kept him training and focusing on improvement with great drills and skill building. He gave him great pointers and encouragement to try his best. Coach Stephen was focused, positive, and hard-working! My son got great feedback afterwards, and we are looking forward to working more with Coach Stephen so that my son can become the best goalie he can be! – L. Nor

James Newman (Testimonial)

Andy (CoachUp client)

    

Coach Stephen is great at working with young people, focused and expert at the building blocks of what a keeper needs for a good foundation of skills.
He wastes no time during sessions and impresses the value of doing things right on players, keeps them moving and focused.
This is the best all around 1:1 soccer keeper training my son has ever had.
We will be back for

Ellie/Jennifer (CoachUp client)

    

My daughter has worked with Stephen throughout this past year. I have seen her confidence, skill level, and dedication to her position increase dramatically. Stephen’s approach and practices I have not seen other coaches use. He always has helpful feedback and tips too. My daughter looks forward to training sessions with him and will continue to train with him as long as we can.
