“Alex’s background in education and collegiate soccer coaching will positively impact children’s overall development.”
My son (8) and daughter (9) loved training with Coach Alex. He really engaged and challenged them as they worked on building a strong foundation so they can continue their development. Coach Alex worked with them on many aspects of the sport and they look forward future training sessions.
The coach who is Soccer Rockets is top flight. I know no other private coach who gives the kind of thorough, expert training to his students, not to mention the total commitment to their improvement he demonstrates. While he is a former Division I, Olympic level athlete who is also a dad and teacher, he is in the kind of physical shape where he is able to fully demonstrate what he is teaching, which is a very important asset. As a long time high school coach and Division I athlete myself, I cannot recommend him enough.
Ability to adopt exercise for the kids ability or disability. Also understand how to uplifting students physical and emotional potential
Alex is a experienced, dedicated, and passionate coach. He sets high standards for himself and the kids and always communicates in a positive way to support the kids. Alex created a fun and productive practice environment – he was teaching and practicing the skills and tactics my kids will needed to learn. Also, Alex educated kids about working understanding of offensive and defensive skills. Alex, understands that every kid/player is an individual and really comes prepared for every training session to get results for the kids.
