"I was a college soccer player and had coached club U17 girls and HS varsity women's soccer teams in the past. I chose to experiment and ONLY do drills I got from your site. Happy to report that we only got scored on 3 times all season, and most of our players were very comfortable dribbling through traffic!" Nicole, U8, Premium member, posted on Facebook
"Using the SoccerHelp concepts and the incentive patches, my U8 soccer team just finished the season 8-0-0. This is the same team that last Fall was winless and only scored one goal. My kids and parents could not be happier! I am just about to place my third order for more patches, so man did they work!!" Coach Dan, GA, Premium member
"I took on my son's U8 soccer team because they were short a coach. I stepped up even though I had never before played soccer. My team won all but one game my first season! My son's improvement is far beyond what I could have ever imagined." Steph, Premium Member and soccer patch customer
"I had 5 or 6 players that ranged from average to skilled, with the rest being either unskilled, didn't want to be there, bad attitudes, or all of the above. After finding your site I immediately started Dribble Across the Square, and implemented your defensive strategy on throw ins and goal kicks. The changes were dramatic. This summer I found out that parents were making requests to have their players put on my team." Dan, OH, U8 soccer coach, Premium member and patch customer
